A single end attachment. You can almost see how the sharp wire ends are tucked into the open space between the fence and the pole.
Side view of the single end attachment. The cut ends of the wire are wrapped around the fence on the other side of the pole with needle nose plyers.
Double end attachment- two ends of fence wrapped around a single pole. I attached one end around the pole, then wrapped the other around it.
Same pole from the side
Today we worked on sit/down/stand practice in the basement and back yard. I also took him for a walk in the cut corn field across the street. He had a blast running around the field grabbing at the stumps of corn stalk left by the machine. He didn't even hardly notice the big round bales of corn stalks that are now in the field.
In the back yard, we practiced a bit more heeling with his dinner, then switched to more sit/down/stand cue discrimination. I think he is starting to generalize. I had a demo I had to do today with Coyote and Bear, so Dazzle stayed home with dad. I didn't know how he would react, but I was told he was a perfect gentleman. He sat quietly by the door to the garage for about 5 minutes, but when Mike showed him I had left he relaxed with Mike for 2 hours till I got back. Yesterday we mostly worked on leave it and the cue discrimination. I don't think he will have a problem with the Dog Scout test next week, but I do need to practice leave it with an animal...
