Finally got video of the little monster doing some rally! From class tonight. She was a bit distracted as per usual, but it's OK! Getting better every week. Though the spots she's sniffing are drool marks from the AWESOME Newfie who went before us (no, really, that Newfie is fantastic and SO handsome!), so I suppose it's good she wasn't sniffing for no reason????? (She has a history of displacement sniffing)

Also - the jumps are her favorite parts LOL. Moving downs are also super fun.

Wow! That was very impressive! I love her "stand", it's so crisp and snappy.

And sometimes, a girl can't help but sniff a bit of Newfie drool, lol.

Thanks for the compliments!!! We've worked hard on those stands - probably my least favorite thing to teach, though.

Bwahahaha apparently! Good stuff, that drool

Thanks and...I think you may get your wish Kimma looks pretty happy in this video. She is coming along really, really nicely. And I agree her positions are great!

I do think while she was sniffing something, it probably was a bit of stress sniffing because it seemed to increase with the duration of your time in the ring. To start with she didn't seem too interested, then towards the end she sniffed more. That said, it wasn't a lot of sniffing and she seemed happy enough to come right back to work. I would just work on keeping her engaged and I think the sniffing will take care of itself. Maybe try to make your rewards more interesting and less predictable. When she's heeling nicely and attentive to you, surprise her with a quick treat in motion. Teach her to jump up to get a treat from your hand on cue. If she likes to chase you, sometimes use your marker mid-heel and run away. Let her catch up to you then quickly go right back into heeling. That is one of Whim's most favorite things ever!

Have you seen Denise Fenzi's Obility? Since Kimma loves the jumps, she'd probably really enjoy practicing obedience like that

Thanks!!!! Well, she's happy because it's a place she's pretty used to (this was our 4th class). Other environments are a different story! Which is why I try to do show and gos and take her out as much as I can to practice random places.

That's what I'm hoping, about the sniffing. It has REALLY gotten a lot better in all venues in the past 5 months or so, especially in agility. But it has actually gotten a bit worse due to my being sick for a while/the foot surgery. I couldn't work her as I had been (taking her other places, etc.) and I think it screwed her up (especially when I was walking with the boot/limping a lot). Hopefully we will get back to where we were, and surpass that soon!

AWESOME advice about quick/random rewards and running away. I use the running away as a reward for agility, so why not obedience?!???! She also loves the "touch" thing so we use that a lot. I need to start rewarding more in class in general. One reason I like to record myself LOL. It's SO helpful!

OMG. I want to do obility. That would be PERFECT for us!!!!

Working on Kastle's heeling and pivots. Switched to a behind the hip reward system. Working on fading the lure, getting his butt in more quickly on the pivots/turns, and duration of heeling. Taking it slow.

I'm thinking of trying out Rally O with Cali, in addition to the flyball... so I'm going to have to take a look through this thread!

My only worry about it would be Cali's excitement when she's working on tricks, etc. I'm thinking in a new environment, she'd be more calm (at least, she was when we took an obedience class a year ago) but at home, she tries going through every trick she knows until I give her a command or hand signal. It'll give us something to work on, that's for sure.
