    I am uploading this clip to YouTube right now so that it can be viewed by anyone. Even though I have my FB settings set to everyone, people who are not members are unable to view it. I figured out how to save it so that I could upload it to YouTube. It should be live in 30 minutes or so.

    Thanks - I watched part of it last night until I got interupted by life (16 year old kept calling me about what to get people for Christmas)

    It is interesting to see how focused she is on you. It is also good to see some perspective on her size. She doesn't look that tall in her pictures because there is nothing in the background to give any indication of her size [​IMG]

    She is still absolutely beautiful!

    Great clip, Redyre! Do you have a goal in mind for each session or are you just winging it? Doesn't seem all that different from teaching a horse to stand square. I use sugar cubes for that or sometimes those apple treat thingies. With the schutzhund dogs, tho, I don't use treats at all. But Dobies and GSDs seem to work nicely without it and I am not trying to instill the intense concentration on the bait that you need for the breed ring. But it is FASCINATING to watch you work!

    Thanks for letting us watch!

    Gorgeous! I show cats but they don't stand nice. I would love to start showing dogs but I could NEVER afford a show dog. How much to dog shows normally cost? Cat shows are normally $50-$200 for 2 days depending on the show and then of course there is the hotel room costs. Are dog show similar?

    Entry for conformation only is usually about 25-30/day. Breed specialty entries may be a little more.

    I expect she will be a very nice working dog. In addition to conformation, I would expect to do Obedience, maybe rally, probably herding, and carting. [​IMG]
