Running A-Frame

We had our second private on the running A-Frame.  We started again with Barbara holding Matilda, now a little higher on the down side of the A-Frame.  I started from different positions next to the A-Frame and on both sides, sending her to "hit it".  Then we added some motion from me, starting running from different places next to the A-Frame.  In all of these she had one fly off which was my fault because I threw her toy before she even got to the box, crazy me.

Next I put her in a it stay on the entry side of the A-Frame and I walked to the apex. I released her and called "hit it". We did a few more of these adding motion from me, until I was running with her. Next, we added a jump with a turn back to climb and "hit it". Finally, we added two jumps in a 180  turning back to the A-Frame. She did one just right, then the next time which was going to be the last time she did a leap off.  We did one more starting from behind one jump so we could end on a good one.  Barbara said she thought she was doing an excellent job.

In class Barbara said she'll put the box on the A-Frame.  She said her dog Seeker could use the reinforcement and another dog, too. I have class on Tuesday and I'm coming for another private on Thursday evening.

At home on the flat we can work on handling after the box.
