I took Merlin to his first "beginner's obedience class". Whew - what a night. We started with the heel. He did pretty good on that, but when we stopped, he wouldn't sit. I tried pinching his hindquarters like the trainer suggested. First, my finger span isn't that wide, PLUS, it just didn't work. He finally sat for a treat - then once he ate the treat, he popped back up. Even the trainer said, "boy, he's going to be a tough one." Any suggestions from anyone?
