    DefaultFirst "official" whistle sit

    Sam and I've been working on them. Whistle sits are part of handling for hunt tests (altho not required at the lower levels) This morning for the first time I sent him to the pile of bumpers, and then blew the whistle for him to sit as he was running out. And he DID it. I never dreamed we would get to this point. (all those bumpers out there calling "pick me, pick me" What dog could possibly resist????) He turned to me just as nicely, then sat looking at me to see what I would tell him to do. I signalled him to go on the rest of the way to the pile and he did. WOW, that felt good!!!!!!

    Almost like your baby's first steps........

    CONGRATS!!! We're still working on whistle sits separately from the pile work. I cannot wait till we combine. I'm sure it's just wonderful to have a dog do what Sam did! Keep up good work.

    That's awesome! There is nothing better than watching dogs being field trialed. A friend of ours owns a dog that was trained for field trials. It was amazing to watch her work using the whistle and hand commands.
