Yes, If only. What a loaded statement. Most dog trials are won or lost by getting your dog to stop. I am loving the stuff Bracken is doing on sheep. However we could move along much faster if she would only lie down. She is dying to move on and go further but she just won't stop. This is an age old battle. Be careful what you wish for, many a time I have been bagging her mother the walk up. Bracken seems to have plenty of walk up, nice square flanks. She can be a bit wide sometimes on her out runs. I think we have moved pass the dreaded trying to stop a sheep with her teeth, feet and twenty pound body. Most times led to having hamburger like pads on all four feet. I have been told that if she respected me more than she would listen to me better. I have tried to instill the fear of god in her but apparently she is an atheist and does not believe in god. Don't let this cute face fool you she does not have good thoughts.
