@roguecoyote Good for you ! I swear by a Gentle Leader as a training tool. A week or so on one and then a day on a normal collar and lead and they trot along fine. They go back on the GL from time to time just as a refresher. You are controlling their head and that is very important.
Dolce Wins Best In Field!

Sunday Dolce took best in field at the Metropolitan Atlanta Whippet Association AKC event in north Georgia. Not only did she win Sunday's event, but she beat her competition, a greyhound, to the finish line! Pictured here is Dolce and her Mama and Les Pekarski whose partner Shirri Peak passed away a few weeks ago. This trial was dedicated to Shirri and the best of field prize was named in her honor. Dolce was extremely proud to be the first recipient of this great award!

There were 7 dogs total competing for Best in Field. All of them had nice runs but Dolce gave everything she had and she kicked booty! Dolce may be little but she is determined and running against a Greyhound didn't phase her at all. She earned a 5 point major for this win! If memory serves, she has 3 majors and a total of 13 points towards her AKC field champion title. Just 2 more little points to go.
