I apologize for the terrible quality...and the state of my room.
Had a grand total of 15 minutes to work on this last night

Cobain forward stationary and walking weaves


Cobain first attempt to backwards walking weaves. I think if I work on it a bit more he should get it.


Rigby forward stationary and walking


I attempted it with Oz...but with him being a beagle I need a bit more than 5 minutes to work on it haha

Almost time to start thinking about backwards with Kili!

Okay, tried to do backwards with Kili. How do you folks start this? It is SOOOO hard. Going forwards I only had to really lure her a few times and then she started to get it and make an effort. Going backwards she does not seem to be getting it at all. I figured backwards would take a little longer, but I'm not so sure I'm doing this right. lol

Does she do anything else backwards? Walk backwards? Go up stairs backwards? I'd probably start there.

Nope. lol. But I taught her to pivot on a Frisbee by my side (to teach her swing into heel position) and I thought I could just get her to continue that pivot all the way. But maybe not.

You may be able to work something out with a pivot. I'd be curious if you can translate the behaviour or not. Just remember that it's pretty challenging for dogs to remember that they have back ends, so asking them to do something where their back end has to think for itself doesn't come naturally.

I think I sort of worked off a pivot when I started teaching this. Onyx has relatively good hind end awareness and she picked it up pretty fast.

Looking good everyone! Sassafras, I loved your stomping of small cities, I definitely LOLed at that!

Here's yesterday's work with Onyx. I think she's starting to think more about where she's going. I am trying to fade my hand movements, but we're not quite there yet.

I teach all of my scoots and backward scoots and reverse leg weaves from a pivot. That's also how Silvia Trkman teaches it in her puppy class.
