Daisy Peel Seminar: Day One, After Lunch

Daisy Peel Seminar: Day One, After Lunch

Previous Entry Share Next Entry
After lunch we started working on weave entrances.  We grouped around various sets of six poles and facing the poles; and from the side we sent our dogs to both ends of the poles. All the dogs did pretty well with this.  Next Daisy set up a jump to the poles with the poles running parallel to the jump.  Then just a few feet beyond the entrance to the poles she set the entrance to a tunnel. Many of the dogs Matilda included took the tunnel the first time.  She suggested working on this kind of challenge in our pole practices. Next Daisy had us run a short sequence where we rewarded our dogs after each obstacle to keep our dogs checking in with us and to work as a team.

After this we worked on short sequences with front and rear crosses.

The rear cross was the biggest challenge. Good job Matilda!

  • these look like GREAT exercises for you two!!! wow! and you got good long turns at each challenge---so nice. Was that Barbara Mah shooting video for you? How cool to have all that video of the seminar to go back and study, refer to!!!!!!! wish I did : (
    • Sharon, the AKC judge, did. She was auditing. Barbara shot some Silvia Trkman video for me yesterday in her yard. I can't figure out how to load it at the handling class site. Maybe I'll call you for some help.
      • yay Barbara!

        put it up on youtube first and then I think you need to grab the *embed* link for Sylvia's site... it says on her site what to do... (I did it wrong first)
