We have been experimenting with a remote trainer for Sophie. She has done well the few times we have used one and will be ready to make that transition whenever or if ever her owner decides to do that. The biggest difference is seen with the Come command. She has gotten better about recall overall while she has been here but she is a bit sharper and a bit quicker when she feels the pager vibration when she is called. She is less likely to drag her feet.
Tomorrow we are going to work on off-leash recall some more trying to get it as sharp as we can before she goes home. So far the hardest part is when another dog is out so that it what we are going to focus on. We are going to make sure to get plenty of practice without the remote trainer on so that her owner can practice at home without a remote if she wants to.
We are also going to take Sophie's go-home video and photo for the yearbook page tomorrow. I think her mom will be pleased with the progress Sophie has made this week when she goes home on Friday. I am certainly proud of her.
