    I am still waiting on an answer to my questions. Please reply

      Here is the response to your question we posted on November 21st.

      In reply to Sherry Creech.
      This is a touchy spot you are in, your timing needs to get faster when you see he is about to lock on and ask him to come forward before he stops. Asking him to drive faster should also help and let him be a little naughty will help him come forward. That being said, being overly aggressive heeling I correct them for being bad and be soft in that correction then ask for a lie down. Don’t just stop and hold him there, let him get up quick and come forward. Hope this helps if you have anymore questions let me know.
      Thanks Shane
