    The two subjects

    Command one: Lie Down

    Next one: Get the Ball

    Third one: That'll Do!

    Last: In!

    What I'll do is set the ball down, tell Blaze "that'll do", walk far away, lie him down, then say "get the ball", he runs toward the ball and somewhere between me and the ball I'll say stuff like "lie down" or "stand", then "go get the ball" again, then I might call him off right as he gets to the ball with a "that'll do". It's fun and makes him think alot!

    Thanks! We've worked hard to get that much control - and I can tell he's maturing alot lately because he's getting so much self control.

    YAY Blaze!

    I swear, that ball exercise is one of the coolest things to do with BC pups. Eve was doing it at a young age too, she loves it.
