I am totally speechless & in awe tonight....First off, agility class was amazing, I used my new Control Unleashed tools for Kort, & he was totally focused & quiet for the entire class! When other dogs have their turns & run & play , Kort gets excited & barks, or pulls, or whines.....tonight...nothing! Total focus on me!! But that is not the only part I'm in awe with.....after agility I took the dogs for a walk, yes, both dogs, no comments please!! ......we were just turning into our driveway when Kort bolted , charging after a rabbit he had seen in the grass. I had totally missed it.....I calmly said" Kort Come"...& he did!!!!! He came & sat in front of me waiting for his treats!!....just one look over his shoulder for the rabbit, that's it! I'm like freaking out! I think I screamed & jumped on the sidewalk with excitement when he turned toward me.....this is a dog that just 3 days ago would haul me down the street screaming if he saw a rabbit...nothing I tried worked to get his focus off of them. If I could kiss the author of this book I would!, & a huge thanks to the Dogstar Academy for recommending it to me!
