I did a lot of work when he was younger in one for groundwork, but when it comes to working out of one, it seems he has a hard time without the structure of it, if that makes sense? Lounging and working in one he is great, out of one not so much. Anyway, need to sort this out with him, and that's all there is to it.
    Just make sure he knows which jesus you're talking about.

    I mean, make sure he knows what you're asking. 3 year olds, if they are green, tend to be inconsistent anyway. If he hasn't had a lot of work lately, he may just be kind of out of practice. Learning takes repetition and he may be rusty.

    I'm all for getting one in and moving forward after some time off, but it's okay to postpone starting one until you know you're going to have the time to put in some consistent days with him.

    Otherwise we end up trying to train as my husband described, "Steady by jerks."

    Boots I completely agree. I start Spring Break this Friday so I will have two weeks with him where I can take all the time that I need. This weekend I take him to the trainers for an assessment and I should know a date that he is going....hopefully it will be right after Spring Break or shortly there after.
