I don't know what his issue is, per say, but Psyche was really weird about people touching her to measure her, so I worked on shaping her to go under the wicket they measure with at agility herself. So I just held it up on a table top (actually, had someone else hold it) and then shaped her through the steps of going under it herself. That way the judge/helper doesn't have to touch her, and she's comfortable under the wicket, so there's no question about her cowering.

Can't watch the videos cause I'm at school, but will as soon as I get a chance. I'm sure he's awesome.

He's looking great!!! Good job working on his weave-touching and bar-knocking issues! And I always enjoy watching Sloan

Love the videos, and I'm jealous you have dogs that seem to WANT to work... Liz does agility to humor me, but hers is just a slow-paced waggy-waggy "I get a treat now? Here I'll do this tunnel, too - now treat?" lol

Woot!



He's still popping on the 4th occasionally with excitement but look at the impossible. He's running 6 straight almost like a pro. LOL He's very, very good if we rerun repeatedly in one spot but every slight movement poses a challenge. The good thing is the challenge is proving less and less each time, he's really starting to grasp what his job is and I think he's actually having some fun, go figure!

I found a toy over stimulates (which I've said before) and normal treats don't drive him enough but left over pork fat smooshed into my treat bag with kibbles and other normal treats works well. Of course my hands stink, he's got slightly loose stool, and my treatbag is too greasy to sit on my hip anymore, but whatever works right?

Thank you for this tip, I'll have to try and see what I can do about shaping it. I'm going to try and have him measured by one of the other trainers today and see how he tolerates it, maybe he's changed his mind? If that doesn't work then we'll work on a stand stay and shaping it until the wicket.

I am entering him in a trial, just a run or two, with Sloan at the end of this month. I think even if we don't complete anything he needs to get out there in a crowd, around other dogs, other people, and in a new environment. Fingers crossed.
