Fun Run: Missing Run

Here's the other run in two pieces.
  • Wow! You guys are amazing. I love how happy she looks the whole time.
  • she's so funny!
    good getting her back!

    did you ever figure out where she thought she was headed when she kept rear-crossing you to your right side?
    • Mark said it was the way my shoulders were facing. There were other jumps to the right, He always has two courses set up together, one novice, the other excellent. Still, I was surprised. Maybe I should work on some of those figure 8 flat work exercises you're doing. Is that from your new book? Should I get a copy?
    • going right

      With the weaves I think I need to work them more throwing a toy. They're not her favorite thing. At home she's fine with them, but I need to reinforce them more so that when we're somewhere new she's happy to do them, too.
    • I like it, because I like to follow a plan... maybe I could scan in some and you can see if its useful... but the Mecklenburg book is also teaching the dog to follow one side or the other... but you DID all that foundation work in your classes didn't you?
      • We did do a fair amount, but I think it's clear we need to do more.
      • foundation work

        We did the ladder work, rear end awareness work with perch work, work on crosses, but not very much much on having our dogs keep with us on the flat without obstacles. If I had more of that practice, I think she would work betetr with me with the obstacles.
        • Re: foundation work

          why don't you order the flatwork book... I couldn't figure out what to scan for you... there is the hind end work you've already done... but lots of other stuff that would be good... she does the obstacles just fine... but there's the idea that actually more time is spent handling on the flat on a course than doing the obstacles
