With Pepper, on the other hand, I struggled to make progress yesterday. It seemed like we went back a step to where she wanted to dive into the sheep while driving. I probably put her in a bad situation and didn't stop her soon enough, especially for having the line dragging and not in my hand. I'll have to be more aware of when she's likely to do that and pick up the line again BEFORE she dives in. The odd thing is she's just going out of heat. Some people have told me they don't train on females in heat at all since they are likely to be more sensitive and weird at that time. Pepper may have been more sensitive, but only in a good way, not in a weird "I don't like this" way. She was really listening to me and was more calm and careful.
Here's some pictures of the girls- they get along better than most female (dog) siblings, I think:
