A small update.
The little of peeks of change here and there were actually a beginning of an avalanche of Darinka's self-makover. Darinka seems an altogether different dog now. She so very nice to work with.
Of course, the video is not really representative, since I never had the heart to actually show our problems on a video of how she could lie down for like hours on end when I wanted her to walk up, or completely refuse to lie down when I wanted her to lie down. Or how an away-from-pressure flank was an impossibility and how her heading was an imperative, and how her response was a zoomie or a freeze.
All this has changed dramatically, she makes mistakes of course, but it is all at a very normal manageable level. And what's more, her mistakes are correctable, which means we are actually making head-ways every time we training. Her own initiative in the Darinka makeover is her recall which she insists on performing like am earth-to-earth supersonic missile with me as the target
So the video is not all that different from other videos of Darine. And pelase keep in mind that handling and filming are to a large extend mutually exclusive activities .
