Rain was predicted for today. (It did come.) So I went to a different class yesterday. Barbara had us try an idea from her seminar. If we messed up on an obstacle she had us take our dog to redo that problem obstacle and stop and treat. Then we were to go back take the obstacle before the problem obstacle, then the problem obstacle and treat. Finally go back one more obstacle or or go back to the beginning of the sequence and take it again. I think this will help me get Matilda to re engage with me when we make a mistake at a trial.

I also did the class without a collar. I had no problem getting a leash on Matilda at the end of each run. I've been working on recalls with good treats in the house. Each time she comes I put the leash on her and give her a treat.
