Buzz is working on backing up (again). And staying on his bed while I'm in the kitchen. And not eating the leftover food sometimes left in cat bowls. And I'm attempting to do boundary training with the baby gate again... Oh, he's also learning how to conquer ALL THE FOOD TOYS!

BUT I AM DOING LOTS of things with Frodo for funsies (handling exercises with cones, dumbell retrieves, left heel position instead of right)! And I need to start doing more with Siri if I want to tak her in APDT puppy in April!

Lol, I love living in the same building with a friend!

Squash's ON BY when we are skijoring alone. Usually Maisy keeps him on the trail for me. Progress made is inversely proportional to how tired he is.

The others, I'm mostly working on shaping... more trying to teach them how to be shaped/offer behaviors than a specific thing. Just silly little tricks, nothing in particular.

Murphy - we're working on the "Excuse me" behavior which he appears to have totally forgotten. As a result he's been stepped on a lot in the last couple weeks and I've spent a large amount of time being irritated.

Mu - is in a weaves class being handled by a friend of mine.

Tipper - we're working on frog legs for the trick train off (which we're probably late for but making progress). Also working on self control and not barking hysterically when overstimulated.

Omg Rosey has forgotten "excuse me" too! Well, or she just don't care. Now its more like "excuse me. Excuse me. Excuse me. EXCUSE ME. GET THE **** OUT OF MY WAY DOG."

rosey and I are working on being healthy, currently.

I'm working on lots of confidence building things for Aiden right now. He had two really bad trials in a row and needs to be built back up again. We are kind of taking a break from 'routine' obedience and just goofing around. I really hope the snow melts soon so we can get back to tracking. We are also hoping to start agility in a few weeks!

Distance work!

Iz is improving which gives me hope. She went out almost 20 feet to a tunnel with like zero momentum going in which she wouldn't have done before. Now if only my feet were pointing her in the right direction off the teeter into the tunnel and we probably would have got the gamble.

Lots of general day to day stuff. Being polite, going for walks, being nice to live with.

And freaking stacking. Goddamn I thought standing still would be easy.

We start Fred in cgc classes in a week or so too! I just remembered!!!! Its a dog club, so hoping to find more stuff we can do too.

That's right, so get your behind down here and work with her!!

With Frodo I am mainly working on pivots when we are inside, and then we go to the park an awful lot and work on recalls there.

With Siri it's mainly attempted socialization and life skills. Rev up and settle down games. NO BARKING AT THE OTHER CRITTERS IN THE APARTMENT! Building toy drive. Leash manners. Crate manners. You won't die if you're frustrated. Relaxing. Self control. House training I haven't done anything as far as structured sit, down, etc. I figure if I put enough effort into foundation work now, that can all be dealt with later. And by Megan, because she is Megan's obedience dog.
