WOOO!!! Got our NAJ title

I will post a pic in the thread under Agility and Dog Sports.

But here I will give a more detailed account of the standard NQ.

I'm not sure how much of this to attribute to a new place (which was SUPER hectic - Dream Park in southern NJ in case anyone has been there), but our first run of the day, which was standard, was NOT good.

She bounced off the table (which I thought we had gotten under control but apparently not yet LOL), then refused the weaves and went to sniff (BLAH), and THEN totally refused a jump (I think because it was after the frame and another jump and landed her like facing the doors/people/commotion).

The weave refusal thing. It keeps happening. She refuses them first time, every time. Even in class now (that was the only thing she did wrong on the jumpers course today). I THINK it's stress related as she will go sniff. She comes right back when I call, which makes it a bit less annoying, but I'm not sure what to do about it. She used to have the BEST weaves. I can't really start over right now, unless I just don't enter anything else for a while, and I have gone back to rewarding after weaves every time in class. Has anyone else had this issue??? It's super frustrating and I think she senses that I get anxious as we approach them, too, which doesn't help...

Honestly, the table and the jump refusal aren't huge deals. But we kind of need to get the weaves under control LOL.

Thanks meepitsmeagan for the siggy!
