So I've tried understanding 2x2s for over a year now, and for some reason it just never made sense. My coworkers would try to explain, show, etc and I felt like an idiot because there were so many aspects that made no sense.

GUESS WHAT I LEARNED LAST NIGHT?

I now have three sets of 2x2s to get Recon going on weaves again, and he did pretty well last night during training, for being a little confused and freaked out, as to why were practicing agility at midnight with strangers and dogs barking in his car. Plus his loud voice.

For being as stressed as he was he engaged well with myself and my friend, I figured out how to get some weaves accomplished, got taught how to roll a disc, and built a lot more drive in discs for Recon! It was a very awesome, impromptu training session.

Awesome!

I love 2x2s. I love methods that don't just show the dog what to do, but makes them LEARN what to do.

I think I'm going to really enjoy them too, now that I have a full understanding and good weaves to use! Recon was picking it up quick since he did already have weave experience, and it was cool watching his dogs work them too.

Yep we do 2x2's as well, at the barn they do gates and it just confuses the poop out of Diesel.

No trial for use this weekend thanks to snow and donkeys and that can't drive to conditions. Both highways out of town were closed due to head on collisions...at the same time.
