I'm in the process of FF training my Chocolate Lab Chase. He's 13 months old. I know I'm behind but better late than never.
Couple questions. *Disclaimer* I'm following the Freddy King YouTube videos.
First, he is behind in his formal obedience. (Basically isn't off leash yet) Should I wait to continue FF until I can get him good off leash?
Second, once I get the object in his mouth, he holds it pretty good with some reinforcement required. But he still really fights getting the item in his mouth. He'll turn his head away and basically refuse to open his mouth to the point that I have to pry it open. Is this normal? He's still doing this but he seems to be getting progressively better in that regard... Any advice would be great!!! ﻿
If you stay ready, you don't have to get ready!
