That's awesome! Way to go Izzy!

I hope she does, I'll be rooting for her.

And you must get video, it is the law. ;]

I wasn't offended at all--I'm so sorry if it came off that way. I'm just excited to talk to someone about OB. :]

You so should! I feel like we have a long way to go, and the more learning I do now the smoother our sailing will be, lol.

What I need is more practice in show environments--that's our biggest issue.

That's Keeva's problem too! Her ears are swiveling all around. At one Rally run she wouldn't down. This dog has gorgeous, stop as soon as you hear the command and not one step more, downs in motion, and she wouldn't down at all because she wanted to look around. *sigh*

We're working on it. lol

Sorry to butt in to the conversation LOL! But that's Kimma's problem, too, and exactly why we are pursuing Rally for a bit before OB (distractions in specifically that type of environment). I never thought of doing Rally, but just finishing her RN has been super helpful. Though I'm shocked we got the title in 3 attempts as the first time out she wouldn't even sit at the first sign HAHAHA. Boy was I embarrassed! But once she starts going, she's great. Snappy pivots, good DOR, nice retrieves, and consistent heel position. Put her in a ring, and forget it! Probably doesn't help that I'm nervous, too.

Of course, I was worried about distractions at agility and she just does her thing no issues. So I dunno. I would LOVE if we started an obedience thread like the agility one

ETA - I refer to the ears swiveling as "radar dish ears" - and Kimma has them

Haha, that's Elsie. The cutest thing is that she knows not to sniff... on the ground. So she wants to sniff way up in the air instead, which she NEVER does, y'know? And then of course I have bad ring-anxiety so I fall to pieces, which I know doesn't help her trust me (which makes me more nervous and so on).

Elsie refused a down on our third RN leg, too. She just stood there staring at me like, "THAT'S NOT WHAT WE DISCUSSED."

Lily was having one of those days today when we were working on left pivot. She was like "What do you mean? I totally don't do that." Oh dogs... LOL.

We totally need an Rally/OB thread like the agility one!

I was inspired by this thread to work on the left pivot with Squash, even though we are firmly at the novice level. From some of the suggestions here, once he learned to heel backwards I turned it into a game where I spun around backwards in a circle while he stayed in heel.

Being Squash, he loves that game SO MUCH that now when we are practicing the pivot, sometimes he keeps going and ends up behind me facing to my left or even on my right side facing backwards.

I think these should be introduced as new skills.
