Molly & I just got back from obedience class. We were doing "long recalls" with a dog in each of two corners of the room & taking turns to leave the dog, walk diagonally to the other corner & call them to you. Al's golden (the same dog that took off two weeks ago) did it again & guess what?
Dr Ruth Betty made him leave the building & his dog was put into a crate! As soon as the dog was in the crate he came back in but had to ignore his dog until everyone was done. At which point he could get the dog back out of the crate & try again....it worked because the dog did fine then. But during the long sits & long stays the dog would keep getting up!
Man that dog is making Miss Molly look like an angel!
