Challenge #1: Proofing Startline Stays.

This is what Zuma and I are working on right now. We did an impulse control class (mostly crate games) that did this.. She is now able to hold her stay while another dog runs past, with me 20 feet in front slapping a toy on the ground. I can throw a toy next to her and she'll stay as well as me waving a toy as I run by her. She is also able to hold her start line stay while the crazy BC's run tunnels and slam teeters as well.

Challenge #2: Pause Table: (can also use a mat if you don't have a table handy).

She's fabulous on a mat, absolutely fabulous. Hits it, slams in to a down and holds it no matter what. We are working on her not sliding off of the table currently and hope to have that proofed before our first AKC trial at the end of March. Once she's on it, she's fabulous, just need her to not slide off of it.

Challenge #3: Distance Skills and Footwork for Distance.

Working on sending to random objects and wrapping them. The toughest for her is watching which side I'm sending her to whether I want her to wrap around the back or the front. She can send up to 20' for the random object. We are working on obdstacle discrimination but she will layer most obstacles now. Last exercise we did included sending to the teeter from the other side of a dog walk/tunnel. She nailed that.
