    Does anyone know how to meditate? How do you do it?

    Or any other ways of staying amazingly calm?

    Lol Occy. I'm thinking more along the lines of techniques I can use to stay calm during frustrating dog training moments!

    Oh surely Charlie and Bella aren't misbehaving! They are far too cute to be naughty! teehee

    I think the best thing to do is to simply walk away and take a break, it will give you all a chance to regather. Otherwise they will pick up on your frustration and become even more naughty (not that I believe they would for a moment of course!)

    Lol they are cute but Bells is also very easily distracted and has "selective hearing" during training sessions! And they always want to watch what the other is doing (so in class we stay far far away from each other - I go one way and OH & Charlie go the other) I absolutely believe they pick up on my feelings - hence needing a way to stop feeling that way! Perhaps just a deep breath and count to ten...

    I will try to remember my targetting stick then - you will find it invaluable for your back

    I really must do more of it with rufus who is a bit of a turd if he sees dogs or people

    Very cool. A few of those things we already do - they get ignored when we come home until the settle down, then they get asked to sit before they get a "hello". They have to sit before they get fed or have their lead put on/off. Must use nilif for Charlie when he wants to play - he jumps all over you to get your attention "Look at my ball mummy! look look look! Throw the ball! Throw the ball!"

    Maybe all my problems would be solved if Bell would just get a little bit taller (highly unlikely!) as she's so close to the ground it's hard to keep her head up so she doesn't sniff everything when she's meant to be paying attention.
