Hey everybody, obviously I'm new to the site, and I am a 1st time gsp owner. My question is this, (any response will be appreciated)
My girl is 16 weeks old tomorrow and she is beginning to be very stubborn. From 10 weeks until now we have worked on a number of skills, some being advanced for her age.
Sit and stay, blind scent retrieval, return bird to hand, heal, etc...
She was doing all of these things perfectly, and without hesitation. She would give you that look that makes you think that she knows what you are about to say before you say it.
All has changed now and I cannot even get her to heal, and she will run off and pretend that she doesnt hear me. She is very attention defeciet! We do exercise everyday. At least 2 miles, sometimes 4. I understand that at this age there are a lot of psyche changes and independence issues.
My question is this, should I change my direction in training? Or just fight through it! How do I get her to regain the interest and zone in to the training?
