I didn't train at all yesterday.
Not a darn thing.
It was lovely.

At least you could convince your Cam to "listen" to you about someone lol ... With ACDs usually if they decide they don't like someone, it's really hard to convince them otherwise ... Lol.

Had a guest over and Wes was great with her. He never saw anyone come over during his socialization period so it's been an issue, but he was very lovey. He was pretty sure she was his new bestie.

Today was just one of those days where everything clicked and I felt like training has actually led somewhere instead of endless flailing repetition. A pictorial example:




AND THEN THEY WENT 'ON BY' THAT SPOT WHEN I RELEASED THEM.

It is interesting working one trick with multiple dogs. I started teaching clockwise circles around me where the dogs jumped over my arms outstretched on both sides of me a long time ago. Mia had the final trick down in one session. We went from the individual arms with a barrier (wall and chair) blocking her from going around and doing each half separately to her doing the full loop away from the walls in minutes. In that same time frame all I got with Summer was a single jump over one arm with the wall to block her.


I've worked it a little bit since then. Summer has picked up other tricks super fast but chaining this together just hasn't happened even with work on it often. She still needed the wall and the single arm at a time.


Tonight we had an impromptu session where she not only faded out the wall but chained the circle together 100%. So months and months of no progression and then like that the entire trick clicks and she can do it all perfectly.

Romeo got his RL1 title this weekend . We got four Q's in the Level 1 classes (two in the championship classes). First, second, third, and fifth place. Very happy with my boy!

We moved up to Level 2 A, but he crashed into the jump the first trial, and knocked the bar the second, so we NQ'd on both . Not sure if we will continue with it, as I'm not sure if it is his vision issues, I don't want him to hurt himself.

What a good boy! Can you just do a jump height modification for him? Around here, judges are GREAT about allowing things in the best interest of the dog.

You were right about me and ACDs...at least show-line/conformation bred ones.

Congrats!
