How to Reward with the Ball

Building drive and motivation for the behavior you want.  Sarah and Alt-Tollhaus Millie (Joker V. Eichenplatz – Kira) at training.  When you get what you want, reward it. Look at the beautiful heeling position of Millie to Sarah’s body, the two are even moving in sync with each other.   Sarah’s timing is absolute perfection

  1. OMG! Who is this professional dog trainer with her gorgeous dog?!! WAY TO GO SARAH!!!
    Now for the family members that do not know you, please tell us how many years you’ve been training dogs and how many dogs you have trained.

    Yes, this is a Kira kid through and through!

    Julie, great demo pix.

  2. Great looking pair! Thanks for the follow-up on drive building, it’s very informative.

  3. Super action shots Julie.
    Look at the focus Millie has.

    • Lynda you are so right, their heeling is beautiful. Sarah handles like a National level competitor. I just shake my head and wonder how she is doing so well so quickly…I think it is because she is an athlete and having the athletic ability helps with coordination.

    You guys look awesome, keep up the great work!!!

  5. Wow these photographs really show perfection. It all happens so fast when you are watching, so seeing the still frames is an ideal teaching tool – thank you Julie.

    Awesome duet Sarah and Millie!

    Thank you all for such encouraging words! I agree with Andrea, it does happen so fast and seeing it in pictures helps to make sense of it all. I must admit, Millie is a great partner out there on the field!
