I stopped slowing down! I just ran full speed towards the weaves, and she dove in and took 'em!

Wish I had realized that's what I was doing months and months ago, but better late than never

This is what my trainer is always telling me to do. "Stop babysitting. Trust her. Just RUN!" And he's always right too gosh darnit!

Glad it was a simple fix for you and Lucy!

This has been a loooooong road. We've had good days, days I could get it if I "fixed" them mid course, and days where she dramatically avoided them. We haven't had consistent weaves in a long time.

Finally, I asked my trainer and she commented that I slowed way down before weaves. "Well yeah, to help guide her in." "It's confusing the heck out of her, stop!"

Suddenly, we hit them all. NADAC Weavers courses have 3 sets of weaves. We ran two of those today, and hit all 6 sets perfectly first time through. YAYYYYYYY.

We're supposed to go back tomorrow but I did something (pulled a muscle?) and can't lift my right leg without shooting pain through my butt. Fantastic. Tomorrow might be a couch day.
Hooray! So glad it was an 'easy' fix on your part!

Just got back from working at the park with Siri. We don't get to go out that much and work anymore because it's dark by the time I leave work most days, I can get so much more done when I have so much more space!

We worked on front crosses at a distance, which she did awesome with. I need to do more handling sans Siri with the rear crosses, I get myself confused and she just kinda stares at me. I have to set her up, and then think about how it's going to work before moving, and she's not always that patient. We got a couple really nice rear crosses though, and she certainly tries to understand what I want!

I spent most of the time just playing ball with her, and then intermittently asking her to work for me. For the most part it went really well, but there were times when I would ask her to drop the ball and work (I had another ball in my hand) and she would make a half-assed attempt and then run back to her free ball. Switched it up and worked with only one ball, practiced walking up to her and taking the ball, sometimes I would walk up to her and just give her treats and walk away.

I worked on asking her to come and jump in my arms, then releasing her back to her ball. Walked up to her, did collar grabs, then threw a new ball. I figure there can never be too much of that right now, I do not want to end up with a dog that takes the ball and runs away, or who I can't catch at the end of the run.

I wish I had remembered my phone to take at least a couple crappy videos, of course I did not.

Today Ryan got me some planks from Home Depot so I can really start hitting the contact training

Yay Siri Sounds like you guys are having lots of fun with it all& that's pretty much the key part of it!

Of course I have video of the red dog ..I don't have any video of our Gamblers run so that sort of stinks& I haven't uploaded the steeplechase run yet but here is our 23 second jumpers
