Bought an e-collar as a last ditch effort, if the ball fails. She's so strongly glued to the rams. Nothing works to keep her away from her boys any longer. Lol.
I have no idea if she'll love the ewes the same or be a ram only protector....May need another pup to train onto ewes as well...lol. ugh.

Patience. That and lots of hands on. I think you are doing a great job of training. These dogs can be so frustrating, then one day, it’s like flipping a light switch. All of a sudden they get it and you look like a brilliant dog trainer. LOL LOL

Yeah...the tire drag I put on Blue lasted one night~and that had chain and a metal clip, not a wire...we still haven't found it. Now, that ball looks interesting...at least they don't have to drag it. I'll have to look into one of those.

I have an old chain choke collar somewhere that I'll try to hang the ball with next.

Balls are horse jolly balls. Horses didn't play with them, LGDs rarely bother & housedog is too old n small. 🤷🏽‍♀️

I'm be afraid he would jump something and that ball would catch and the choke chain would choke.
