I am starting to work with Bowden on "Whoa". I have been watching videos that have guided me to using the barrel approach. He is starting to do well with just standing there without squirming around while I keep repeating " Whoa.....Whoa". I will be adding distractions with toys, balls, sticks and eventually birds. I am not sure how to make the transition to doing it on the ground though. Any guidance would be very much appreciated.
How old is he?
Do you think maybe the barrel is too much pressure at his age?
