    I have been practicing stays with Roxy lately & she's been doing really well but today she surpassed all my expectations.

    She was in a sit/stay & I was approx 30ft from her when all of a sudden right near her, a dreaded deer sprung out of a dyke & shot off across the field :eek:

    My heart sank but for once I didn't panic, stood where I was & when she looked back at me I held my hand up indicating her to 'wait'

    Although she was obviously VERY interested in the deer she didn't move! She got lots of chicken as a reward & was not interested in running off after it but stayed with me to play tug ...... I am in shock! :w00t:

    You've stressed, worked so hard and beat yourself up over Roxy and my goodness you so deserve your success. I'm thrilled for you.

    Bloody marvellous. You have every right to have a big grin for a very long time for that. Well done Roxy, you did your 'mum' proud.

    Thanks so much for your words of support! :D

    I'm not going to be complacent but for us, this is a massive step forward as deer are the most exciting thing for Roxy (& the bane of my life :rolleyes:)

    For her to actually not chase one, especially one that is running, has made my day :w00t:

    Brilliant, I am not surprised. Something we are working on as well (well any wildlife really). You and Roxy (and Toby) are a great team. :D
