    So my daughters mother decided she would take on a dog with a lot of energy unknowingly. Naturally like with all of the dogs we owned throughout our relationship, this one gravitated towards me over her and practically won't leave my side. She isn't necessarily a dog person, even though she likes them she's just not a leader so I am going to rehabilitate this dog.

    This is Lightning, I'm working on training her and making sure she has a lot of self control. She'd be otherwise that dog that either ran away chasing something or worse yet could easily wind up being hit in the road as she's pretty careless and hadn't been worked with beforehand. Easily though this is the most energetic mix I've ever worked with. IMG_20171213_220342.jpg

    I'll post some other photos as we gain control while I also train her in agility. It's possible I have found the frisbee dog I've always wanted lol..My Bulldogs have always ran off with the frisbee while practically eating it.

    OMG she looks like a handful!
    Most energized mix I ever owned was my BC/APBT cross. Oh. My. Dog. The energy on that dog. And the speed. w.o.w.
    Agility sounds great for her! And glad to hear your found your Frisbee girl! I love Frisbee!
    Love her name too. Not one you hear all too often/
    How long have you had her?

    She's a real handful, and vocal too. So I'm learning from the others with outcrossed bull mixes that most tend to be excessively hyperactive, both mentally and physically. I think her metabolism is oftentimes twice that of a well conditioned APBT.

    Lighting, has been with the daughters for a couple months. She's been passed around sadly and was placed into a kill shelter after being denied by the Humane Society after her last owners negligence.

    Oh, her name, it fits her as she's like a bolt of lighting when she jumps like a spark. I've had some really long back legged pit bulls, but she's got several extra inches.

    Sounds like she was just very under-exercised/stimulated, Rez?
    What do you use to help train recall? I'm working on it with B, but she can be so freaking stubborn, typically she's food/treat motivated, but not with recall, if she's really wanting to do her own thing.
    This is tough for me because my last dog had 99% recall reliability. I prided myself so much on her recall that, I seem to be struggling more than normal with Brooklyn.
    We actually worked down back to square one with recall yesterday. So back completely to the beginning. I wonder if it is age too? She's on the cusp of approaching adolescence.

    Training for recall is oftentimes tricky with the unnatural retriever. Breed irrelevant and even in the retriever breeds I've found the dogs that require extra effort employing several things. This is where I usually use hunting dog training tools or just a big stack of discs or balls to regain attention while the dogs willing return. I don't really get to involved though when I have a dog with little interest though. And yes age does make a difference. My oldest, I wouldn't waste my time on lol
