BLAH had one of the best runs ever, and Kimma got spooked by the judge walking behind her. Not really directly behind, but close enough where she noticed and blew by a jump because she turned to look. I saw other dogs get spooked by the path the judge took, as well. At first I thought I didn't cue her early enough, but my instructor was watching us and said it was because of the judge. Now we have one more thing to work on. I swear it's never ending with this fearful little girly.

At least we had a nice, clean JWW run, and Jari was able to go inside the building without being super freaked out and reactive. Silver lining and all of that...

But STILL. It would have been 15 MACH points, which is a big deal for us

That sucks. We don't have spooking issues, but I bet Kili would do the same thing in order to do a "oooo! Friend?" lol. Then probably blow me off to go say hello. At least now you know to work on it. Too bad it was on such a nice run though!


So much this weekend! The rest of that seminar was really great. I was pretty happy with Kili. She was still a little squirrely about being stacked and having people assess her (we were looking at our dogs for structure), but she was reasonably focused considering how many people and dogs there were. She tugged like a little pro. And for the most part she was really good in her crate.

Then she had a really nice class today. I am LOVING serpentine cues. So useful and Kili is really good with them. I learned a lot from the seminar about her structure and therefore what is difficult for her. So I know that no matter what tight turns are always going to plague us. We're going to lose speed on turns for sure, which we will try to make up on straight sections.

Here's the one video I got...not too bad, except for the 3000 attempts at the weaves.

Yeah, we've never had spooking issues with people until today LOL. But we have had anxiety issues anyway so maybe it's just manifesting itself differently. Or maybe today was a fluke. I'm hoping for the latter

But oh yeah, Jari would have been like "YAY FRIEND FOR MEEEEE!" and ran to the judge probably LOL. Which is why he's not going to be trialing for a very long time

My dog ended up in the ring crew's lap this weekend. lol

I figure there's worse things to be than overly friendly.
