Calling Dr. Harry!
Our new home has a large area of lawn in the back yard and we have been giving our 12 year old Australian Cattle Dog, Ogie a refresher course in Dog Obedience.
Ogie is apparently in her second puppyhood. She is still very fit and active. Her enthusiasm is excellent but her attention span is woeful.
Sometimes she seems to confuse commands completely and I am wondering whether the problem is forgetfulness due to approaching senility or failing eyesight. For example on the hand signal for “stay” she often barks very enthusiastically as if she had been given the hand signal for “speak up”
