Thanks! He's soooo much fun, always very enthusiastic We've been working hard on the wraps, as that's a big part of Silvia Trkman's Foundation class.

I wish you were close enough to meet him. I think you'd love him even more since you like hyper dogs so well

Yay!!!! Looking really good! You're going to be so happy you went with teaching the foundations slowly like this, it really makes such a huge difference. The teeter thing, she didn't seem upset by it at least. Not an uncommon problem with tiny dogs at all.

Well, if you're ever headed to any shows in TX, OK, or anywhere around here let me know. I'd love to meet more pyr sheps. There's just not very many around here.

Thanks! Yeah she didn't seem upset at all by flying off the end of the teeter but she gave me a heart attack almost.

I think I will like doing the foundations slowly. Every now and then I get frustrated because by this point at my old clubs we were running full courses and I see people talking about running more than we do. We only have run 4-6 obstacles in a row yet max. And most things are still 1-2 obstacles. But we're doing lots of work on wrapping jumps, driving forward, crosses, etc. I think it'll be worth it. The advanced students at this place are so much more impressive than the ones at my last place (heck Summer and I were in the highest class at the last place lol).

Gusto video at last! This was from his first IPO trial (new USDAA Intro trial). Of course watching the videos I'm now less impressed than I was at the time , but I'm really quite happy with him. This is such a hard environment for him to work in, with all the dirt and dropped treats and bird poop in the corners.

My goal to use less verbal cues with him seems to be a work in progress. Apparently I just can't shut up!

First run of the day - Standard.

His teeter, which I've been fixated on for months, was a fail, because there was a squished piece of cheese or something on the tip point that he had to check out. Good boy for finishing his 2o2o though! I obviously got a bit to obsessed with babysitting the weave entry, and I'm gradually realizing that what I get stressed, he leaves to sniff. I'm beginning to think that is the cause of more of his distraction issues than not. He stresses so differently than Meg, I don't think I was reading it well. I also (despite telling myself 100x over not to) praised him in the middle of the poles, which pulls him out. My error, so we kept going and took the NQ. I was very happy he went ahead of me and sought out that last jump! I don't reward jumps enough, and have been working on it lately. Having him drive to one is a big deal for us.

His first ever Q . The two jumps in the middle he both took going to opposite way from my plan; the first was again an issue with my not sending him directly at it, and him not being prone to seek out jumps. The second I think he just got distracted by the judge. Rear crosses on tunnels have again been a big training point for us lately, so I was very pleased it went so nicely.

2 weeks to go until his first "real" trial!

We're at a seminar with Barb Davis this weekend, it's awesome, I love Barb Davis seminars! The working dogs for this are a bunch of young dogs, so we're doing pretty baby dog stuff, which I usually avoid, but we're getting good information.

1st 2 exercises of the day were mostly on discrimination, which we need a lot of work on:

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Kf7NmsRU_7E

and then a couple on rear crosses, which we do know, but need to get better at, because I'm going to need a lot more of those with Pirate than I ever did with my girls.

this last one was our best of the day, I was so pleased!

I taught the "switch" cue a couple hours before this, because Barb likes a verbal cue on the rear cross. She uses "right" and "left", but Pi's directional cues, I've used for wraps, and I wanted his cue for a simple turn to be different. So, easier to just teach a "turn away from me" cue. Considering that was his first time using it on course, I'd say he picked it up pretty quick!

I can't wait to see what we get to do tomorrow!

Today we worked on something Barb calls a "one armed front cross", blind crosses, back sides of jumps, and finished with a course that involved taking a tunnel from the back side. Really pleased with how Pi did! My video cam ran out of batteries during the blind cross exercise, but a friend was kind enough to video us with her, much better, camera, so here we are with the last 2 exercises.

Pirate really rocked them, especially the back side of jumps exercise! I was running out of oomph, unfortunately, but he did great.
