Zoomie Run and Down on the Table

Well, we went to a trial on Saturday and it was awful.  T2B was a zoomie from the start. Our tugging before going into the ring wasn't going very well. Then I missed hearing the ring steward call us and so we rushed into the ring last minute.  I could see her wild eyes and off she went.  Our other two runs were  better, but not good. It was a very frustrating day.Next time I may try incorporating Control Unleashed "Look at That" game.

Today our class was cancelled for impending rain which didn't really come. During what would have been class time I decided to try teaching an automatic down on the table. I don't have an agility table so I took a regular table and covered it with cardboard and it worked pretty well. I didn't think to record the training from the beginning, but Matilda very quickly got on the table, and then very quickly went into a down when after a few rewards for going on the table I delayed giving her a treat.  She's a good girl.
