What do you enjoy listening to? Like, what helps you pump up?

I put earphones in and listen to heavy metal and 80s rock while doing obedience. It is awesome. Keeps me.focused and more pumped to work with my dog.

oh man, just about anything I guess. Except country, there are very few country songs I really like and none of them are new

Classical I love, but only on occassion.

Otherwise we listen to a bit of everything from Dave Matthews type stuff, to 70's 80's metal, Dokken, Dio, Iron Maiden, Metallica, etc and classic rock type stuff. Not much from current pop hits at all.

I can listen to the metal and rock on a regular basis, the rest lose it's effect if played all the time.

So Tess had her first try at Open obedience this past weekend, and in my opinion, training is overrated.

See this? This is a dog who has never practiced out-of-sight group stays:





We actually trained for the individual exercises. Particularly the drop on recall. So, she failed the drop on recall.

Well of course that is how it always goes!

I randomly entered an APBT (er..Cynosport now?) rally trial last weekend. We got first in the first class.


In the second I NQ'd (the course was more challenging, but he did everything perfect!). I should have read the rules a little more carefully because I gave him a treat in between exercises. Stupid of me...he doesn't even need it, but I don't want him to get ring smart. She also thought I was luring him because he was looking at me while heeling? Meh.

Rally is odd to me. Maybe I wasn't watching too closely but I was surprised at the dogs that placed above others. Some barely completed some of the exercises in the upper levels like stand and walk around..two dogs really never stood still. They put food in bowls to do figure 8's and a few dogs ate the food, they still qualified. Shrug. I'll probably enter some more trials though...

Soo...I'm considering doing some formal obedience trials with Romeo, because why the hell not .

It's been a while since I really went over the obedience exercises, and the competition levels... errr, what happened to there just being Novice, Open, and Utility? I was aware they started doing Beginner Novice, but now there is pre-novice, graduate novice, and so on. Geesh.

lol, I know, but all that new stuff is completely optional. You can still just do Novice, Open, Utility if that's what suits you.

We're gearing up to try our hand at real obedience in January, and I'm freaking out. Our trainer says we're ready, and we'll (hopefully, lol) have two legs of her rally excellent title done, but I'm still terrified.

Elsie knows all the exercises and is great, but I don't know all the rules yet.

I know I'm going to blow it.

Can you do the classes simultaneously? Like enter beginner novice, pre novice, and novice in the same trial?
