Quick background Sheltie is 20 mths and quite reactive to surroundings. She's doing well in obedience and we are starting to work off-leash at agility. As long as she's working on A-frame, contacts, weaves, she's great because she has a focus. When it's not our turn and she is just beside me, she's very in tune to the other dogs and the people running. I usually try and keep her focus on me by asking for a sit, down, watch me etc. I can't have her running off and barking at a dog that came to close or ran by too fast. If we are just waiting, I will move a few feet away so the distractions aren't too close. She did quite well last night and when she was losing focus and not quite listening to me I just happily told her we were all done and put her back in her crate for down time. I always end on a good note and we had a good lesson. Is there anything else I can work on so she isn't distracted by her surroundings? Before class starts, everyone just walks around warming up the dogs' obedience skills and she does okay with that. She'll sit and wait and I'll walk 4-6 feet away and she'll come when called. She does great as long as she has something to do But I don't think she can handle just sitting and watching--she'll start barking and moving toward the person/dog.
