I was really proud of Beckon yesterday. I came into the fenced yard just as Beckon and Loki the Papillion cornered a young groundhog. Before I could do anything, Loki rushed up to it, then fled, deciding that discretion really is the better part of valor. Beckon froze at alert, staring at the enemy. I said, "Leave it! just to be safe, then called him to come. It took a few repeats, and he kept looking back over his shoulder, but he obeyed. When I said, "IN," he came up the deck stairs and went into the house. I was so pleased that he obeyed and followed my voice commands, even with so fascinating a distraction. Repeated reinforcement through Rally really paid off!!
