Nice! What a little cutie!

And lucky you for having such an awesome coach! I trained very briefly with her and Adrian years ago, before my big old guy was injured and retired from agility....they are amazing.

Alright so I have a question regarding weave poles.

When you're teaching 2x2's, do you throw the toy before the dog goes through the weaves, as they are going through, or after they already went through as a reward type thing? I just started with Sam today and I was throwing before to get him to go through, but I just wanted to check

I don't do 2x2's, but it's shaping. Throwing beforehand is luring, so you want to avoid that as much as possible, or else the toss becomes the cue. When we shape the tire or jumps, we click at the moment of commitment, and then toss the treat when they're through.

Okay thanks! So I would toss the toy after he's gone through as a reward right?

The way I understand it is that as the dog commits to entering the poles, you click and toss. So if you're shaping, you could start by clicking/tossing when he looks at the poles, then starts to move towards them, then when he is actually committing to going through. Waiting until after he's gone through would be a too late.

I have not used the 2x2 method either but I have looked into it quite a bit and my understand is that the delivery of the reward is pretty important, as well as that you are not luring the behavior.

You guys are so awesome! No clue who/what/where half of what everyone is talking about, and feel like a noob again (even after 5 years doing agility).
