First, she's only been worked with by a force trainer. She failed out of gundog school because she couldn't take the pressure. Since then she hasn't really been worked at all (probably a year or more). I packed kibbles and my trusty clicker and we headed out for a hike.

I'm seriously amazed. She was super responsive after just a couple minutes on the trail, she was offering eye contact by the middle of the hike, and every time but one when I clicked she was at my hand. I realized I'd fed her from my right hand the whole hike so after I put Buzz in the car we wandered around the parking lot with her on my left side and I reinforced with my left hand. After just one attempt to get to my right hand after the click, she realized that whatever hand is presented has the food!

I really hope she impresses them as much as she's impressed me. Great in a crate, completely no reactive to other dogs, and has taken all these huge new things in stride without a blink.

I'll post a picture or two if I can get them off my phone.
That's awesome! I love Goldens - especially sound, stable ones!
