Weaves and Contacts

I can send Matilda to the poles from the door now.  I've also been throwing toys near her path as she weaves. That pulls her out at first, but after a few tries she keeps going even as her toys land near her while she weaves.  I'll keep working on this until she can keep weaving the first time she's weaving when a toy lands.

For making contacts I think I need to get her out later and then keep her focused on me before we run. At the AKC trial I still got her out too early. She's okay when we first arrive at the ring, but as we wait she gets stressed and begins barking at me.  That in turn stresses me.
