We were out of the library by 12:15 and on to Riverside to the LYNMARK DOG SPORT SHOW & GO. We got there at 1:00 and there was hardly anyone there. We had six runs, one for free. Mark Upshaw as usual had very helpful suggestions. We did pretty well. Three of the runs would have been qualifying times. One, not on video was a clean run.
We still need to work on start line stays. At home and in class Matilda will do weave poles easily, but I need to work on them in other places. Mark pointed out that when I called Matilda to restart the weave poles I was calling as if it were and obedience exercise. "This is agility", he said. I should be using body language to let her know where to come. Mark was also helpful in assessing choices in positioning and crosses at several places on the course.
I had decided to see how today went before signing up for the CPE trial in Escondido in February. I've decided to do it.
Here are two runs from today that I was able to get on video.
