Well it appears the issue is corrected. Seems to me if two bumpers were far enough apart, a simple "sit", "good" and "here" would resolve the issue.....if those were thoroughly taught standards. Here is some "more". The continued use of a rope by the time one begins working a pile indicates a lack of responsiveness. But then again, some spend a lot of time making pups do things (or not) with the use of pressure. But that is another topic. . edit: Rick Hall mentioned a quick recall....of course that must be well taught, too.
