Default Going well so far

Ben is doing quite well at agility so far. My problem is getting him to concentrate long enough so that he will follow my hands. I am working on back crossing right now and he looses interest as soon as he does the jump.

He is rocking out the straight combos, jump/tunnel/jump/A frame. He just tears through as long as they are all straight. As soon as there is a turn in the course he looses interest and spins off course.

I know that I need to go back to target work. Rework his clicker response using target and treats. I admit to being lazy in that area because it is just not as fun.

Sigh, anyway, not sure if this is a "proud of him" thread or an "I am a doofus" thread! LOL!

LOL - go with the "proud of him" thread.
Don't worry, it takes time to come together.

I am very proud of my little man, he has really worked hard and learned a lot, despite his mother being a ditz!
I would be doubly proud of him if he managed to stay clean for longer then two days! I suppose that is asking too much from him! LOL!

That is a proud of him thread for sure. It is hard to keep working at when it gets frustrating I know I have been there done that but when they "get it" it is a grat feeling. Stick with it.
