    I start teaching the "seek back" by having the biggest game of "hide & seek" in the house with toys. Zeen used to love it. We gradually progressed to using her dumbell & S/B article. When I ran out of hiding places in the house, I moved the game outside. When we ran out of hiding spots around the property, I knew it was time to take it to the park & begin the structured exercise.

    Spirit inherited Zena's trialling lead yesterday. I hadn't brought it out in over 2 years. It was a bitter/sweet day.

    I can understand that feeling - i truly can. I bought Cappy a pleated leather lead I never really used. It will go out on Tuesday for obedience training for Rufus as we no longer require a full length lead.

    I am currently working on speak and spin with doof - he goes mental for cat toys so I use them and I think he will pick up spin pretty quickly but speak is a long way off - and if I want to UD, I want a solid speak.

    Thanks guys
    Speak is something we're having trouble with,she's not really a vocal dog , the only time she barks is if someone knocks on the door and then I can hardly stand there strengthening cues etc with the poor person waiting fo me to answer the door

    I can also understand the feeling GSD and how it will affect you too Occy .
    Maybe think of it as a part of them are with you both and the youngsters.

    Can you get her excited enough to vocalise?

    No , she virtualy turns herself inside out with the excitment and wriggles but still wont vocalise. I have never heard a sound out of her unless someones at the door.

    Just back from lure coursing. They started asking questions about Zena & I was alright for a while, but it got too much when they repeatedly kept asking about the vet who stuffed things up. I asked them to stop talking about it, but they clearly didn't listen to me. I walked away to compose myself. I came back & the subject hadn't changed, so I left. Very quiet all the way home in the car. I don't think I'll ever get over losing that dog.
