Shannon and Comet are working together to make going for a walk a more pleasant experience. Comet will learn to walk on a loose leash and see it as an enjoyable time with his people instead of a constant quest for birds. Instead of suppressing all of those traits that he has, Shannon also works to show Comet there is a time and place to work. He has had some great practice in our Search and Rescue class and is starting to pay attention to the people he is with. He can still have lots and lots of fun as long as long as he checks in and takes direction.
Comet will not only learn how to improve his working dog skills to go hand in hand with what his human asks, he will learn how to settle down in the house, and take those manners on the road and practice in public.
