Zinga confused a few Disc cues during agility when she first started, but then she figured out the context of each behavior and we haven't had a problem for a really long time. I did get a few back stalls while setting jumps for a while though.

We start back agility on Monday

She said a spot opened up and that Harleigh should fit in good. She said there is even a Yellow Lab in this class that reminds her of Harleigh's speed and craziness (okay so she didn't say the last word, but I know she wanted to).

Yay so excited!

Fred thinks the tunnel is for peeing on. Omg. Faux pas.

But in balance, he looooves the dog walk. We've only done it once before, and skipped a week, but today he was straight up there and running along! And he's great on the contact too!!

We haven't mastered body control yet (neither me or him), so I tend to flail around because I can't remember where I'm going or how I get round a jump and change direction etc, and he bounds along watching me and crashing into things

We are not graceful, but we are getting into it. Lol!

I need to practice lefts and rights with him...

And working on moving forward and not just because he thinks he's getting a treat/toy....

I also need a word for the contact. Touch is no good as we use that already for hand touches.... Maybe just contact lol

I say "mark" or "mark it"... which ends up sounding like I'm shouting "market" while running the course...

We have a "run" and a "hit" if that helps pick a word.

Meg's cue is "mat" because I trained it using a bath mat originally.

Gusto doesn't have a cue word right now. I really, really wanted it to be automatic, and it has been for a long time, but I'm currently unhappy with his performance on the dog walk, so I may be throwing it all out the window.

DARN! Had a nice standard run this morning (3rd place with some MACH points!) then we go in to jumpers and AS Kimma is leaving the start, someone opens up their chair like 5 feet in back of us. Literally right behind the first jump. Spooked her good, causing her to miss the first 2 jumps. I'm so annoyed. It was the leash runner, too. Ummmmm leash runner for Excellent JWW? When do you even have TIME to sit? Why are you late getting in to the ring? Did the first people in the class just not have a leash runner? I've never seen a leash runner set up a chair. Poor girl basically pulled me back to the car and jumped in before I even had the door open all the way. Cool
