Ooh thanks! Those are some great suggestions! I've always struggled with getting a behavior for a duration especially out of Mia. In agility we're progressing MUCH slower than the other dogs in class and it's kind of frustrating. Everything else she's always the best in the class.
I tend to go for really active tricks and I do realize I tend to rile them up a lot mostly because I love it. So a lot is my fault.
I think this is definitely related. I think I am just going to have all our training sessions this week be working on calm and duration exercises.
