So, Ukulele and I are working on our… team presence. She just came out of season, and she has been weird with pressure (both from me and from the stock. Throughout the few days that we spent in Texas with Erin, we really worked on getting her to gather a lighter and lighter group of sheep. My biggest takeaway from this work…..
She’s kind of manipulative. 😛
She is handler sensitive to pressure, but won’t give to it unless it is her idea.
Her instinct and natural ability is DEAD ON… but I need to learn the tricks to make her respond as a team unit. She’s only 4, and I am excited about the quest.
