I love runnings. My dog is a crazy speed demon, but I've yet to find a running contact to be a hindrance. It just means I handle certain things differently. (To clarify though, I'm really only talking about the frame/dog walk. The teeter I guess is a running (she doesn't wait at the bottom once it's hit the ground), but it's kind of a stop by default since she has to wait for it to lower).

We've just signed up for a distance class starting next month. It's something that's going to be a big challenge for me, but I think it will be fun!
How do you guys teach the teeter? I've been starting to think about it, though I think I'll wait a while to start the training.

Are you taking a Silvia course?
