I am trying to learn to read Noa's body language during tracking. So far I have figured the following signals mean she is off track: Slowing down, loosing line tension, stopping, looking back or around and head up. It usually starts off with a combination of signals that leads to stopping and looking back. I have video's of us tracking which I analyzed on this website:A Dog's Agenda | Tracking body language (http://adogsagenda.com/blog/tracking-body-language.html)
I also discovered she was showing negatives when she is insecure. (Happened once.) How do you tell the difference and how would you handle this? I am just a beginner so if you have any advice or insights I'd love to hear it!
