My Faelan is an 'honest dog'. In my opinion this is a very good type of dog to have.
He hates to displease although he will is willing to try things to earn rewards, even if only a smile. That is, he does not shut down with repeated failures.
He truly tries to do what you want and you can sometimes see him thinking - an example may clarify.
A recent agility assignment had him jumping toward me over a full height jump - and I was less than 22 inches away with a wall behind me - a lot of pressure for him. Faelan respects me and was unwilling to invade my space so I had to take additional steps to let him know it was okay (turning my back to him bit looking over my shoulder. then sideways etc). You could literally see him thinking about how to solve the problem he was faced with.
I have had tough dogs, I have had soft dogs. An honest dog is something a bit different. They may lie down or sit or stand while they are figuring something out but they will try various things - a true thinking dog.
With this type of dog, you need to allow that thinking space and experimentation but in my opinion both of you will be a stronger more bonded team
By teaching him that wrong choices are merely wrong and not bad, she can blossom.
