More Ground Work Ideas??
So I'm working on getting Scars back in shape from the ground right now. We spend about 20-30 minutes a day on the lunge line as I don't want to push her yet. I start her off at a walk then a fast jog before speeding up to a lope for a couple circles, both directions. Then I keep her at jog until she does a nice slow jog with a nice low headset in both directions. Then I side pass her along the fence a few times each way. She backs with me several feet away, waving my finger and jiggling the lead a little. I have her pivot?? (keeping her head tipped towards me and spinning when I step towards her hindend) both directions. Turning away from me- I stand on her left and make her turn right away from me and the same the other way. I make her back up while standing next to me and stopping and speeding up when I do. I'm thinking of putting some logs down to help her pick up her feet a little. Any other ideas of what else I can do with her on the ground? Still working on the her sitting down, but she only does that at the beginning and hasn't done it for a couple days. I would just like something to keep her brain working until she leaves for the trainers in a couple weeks, so I would love any more ideas!!
