Her biggest issue today was her wanting to lay down instead of sit when I stopped walking. Not a catistrophic issue in the grand scheme of things, in fact, I have found that most herding type breeds default to a down position more readily than other breeds. But the point was that, this early in the training she needed to follow direction. When she gets older and obedience has become a way of life for her her owners can revisit the topic of Auto-Downing rather than Auto-Sitting. For today I tabled the idea.
She is sleeping inside tonight. It is just too cold in the training room for her to get restful sleep.
