This is really great with a forum! One question I have right now is if I should start using “stand”? Or should I continue with lie down for some time? I have a keen 1,5 years old border collie with some eye. She loves to work the sheep, so pressure release really works well on her. She has a good lie down. As her pace is often a little bit too high when following the sheep, I have to use the lie down command quite often. I vary with flanks and outruns etc. She knows the command stand from other training with no sheep.
All the best, Helén
