First of all thank you Wetlands and River Rat very much for your advice. I am employing it every time I train my dog. Today we worked on heel, not running circles around poop or pee and sitting and not scooting her butt.
I tried to let her run around a bit before we trained so she would go before training but to no good use. As soon as we got ready to start training she pooped. To start things off I put her on a short leash and worked on heel. I would tell her to heel, then sit, when she sat I would move away from her and tell her to heel. When she tried to run a circle around me I'd block her with my leg and pull the leash the direction I wanted her to go. She picked up the hang of it pretty fast. She is having a little trouble picking up aligning her butt with the way I am facing sometimes. However she did make an improvement today so I will see what time can fix.
After the heel training I went to the area she pooped and set a bumper pile about 3 feet behind it. Then on either side of the poop I placed barriers that forced her to run over the pile of pooh to get a bumper. I again put her on the leash, placed her at heel and then gave her the command back to the pile. At first she instantly tried to go around the pile but I didnt let her. I told her no, made her re-heel and sent her back again. This time she went over it on the out trip but on the back trip tried to go around. I told her no and then pulled the leash to guide her in the direction I wanted her to go. We spent about 20 minutes on this before she finally decided to quit fighting it and just went straight out and back every time. Tomorrow I am going to increase the distance between her and the pile and see how that goes.
One problem of hers that I need to correct is when I tell her to sit she has a tendancy to start scooting her butt as soon as I turn my back. Not much, she may only move 6 inches or a foot but she still only does it when my back is turned. This is hard for me to correct because I do 90 percent of my training alone. Another sit problem she has is keeping her butt on the ground but spinning the rest of her body around to get a better look at me. To try and fix this today I would sit her, and then start walking slow circles around/behind her, she would try and watch me and when I'd get directly behind her she tried to turn. I instantly said no, and kept going. After about 5 minutes of this she got the point and decided to turn her head instead of pivot around to see me. I was happy with this however as soon as I turned my back she would pivot or scoot. I do have an E-Collar but do not want to use it to punish her. Only to enforce what she already knows. She knows she is not supposed to be scooting or spinning like that but she has figured out that she can get away with it and does it anyways. I am also afraid of using it at only the sound of her moving. For all I know she could be turning just her head and I hear the collar jingle. Any pointers on this? It is really frustrating.
