    Hey so in 4H we compete in Showmanship Obedience and Agility. One of my dogs is in Open obedience which is great but because my mom was pushing me to get as high in classes as I could in the beginning she never really got the whole heeling off leash thing so she lags REALLY Bad ... is there anything I can do to get her more engaged and excited about working?? also In showmanship its best if the dog can self stack... How do you train your dog to do that? so heres what my questions are once more lol.

    * How do I get my dog more engaged in the obedience even when she is off leash (the subnovice dog Jazz has problems too lol)

    *How do you train a dog to self stack herself?

    Thanx guys!!

    Play games with her, hold the treat in you're hand, get her to follow it, and toss it in front of her so that she doesn’t lag so far behind.
