Yay, another precision heeler! We are in bronze too, I just make videos for my own reference.

And here's video from our last 2 sessions. We won't be this productive for a while after this.

I like how Elsie's heeling is coming along.

For any of the Fenzi Academy peeps, I'm in the process of posting our first video. It's horrifying. Watson knows some "feet on disc" stuff, but I didn't think he'd be so frustrated and plain crazy about it. I recorded it and it's too late to do another session today, so I just posted it. The best part is the hulk smash of the camera around 35 seconds.

I love how most of the other gold level people posted very nice videos of obedient dogs, and mine is of Watson shrieking at me. At least now you understand my pain. He has a "big dog bark", but he saves it for special occasions.

I'm going to have to get our butts in gear so we can not look so silly in this class.

PS How do I embed videos here? I tried my usual tricks, but I'm not getting it for some reason. I assume it's something simple that I'm missing.

Aww, Watson reminds me so much of Wesley in training! Easily frustrated and easily distracted. I know from experience that can be super tough. On the bright side, you'll get more out of being in a gold spot than people who have dogs that are 'easy'.

He's weird because he's not always this easily frustrated or distracted. He was already kind of nutty tonight when we started, so that didn't help. I think I also have issues training as usual in front of the camera. Reality tv star I am not!

But yeah, he can get super frustrated. Off camera I tried helping him out with cues he knew, like "wait" or "stand" and he rocked them, but I want him to calm the heck down and figure it out. He's one of those dogs who does "is this right? this? no, how about this? this. I know it's this. where is my cookie, woman?!"

He's also sacked out right now. Usually training doesn't tire him out, but I think his earlier walk plus that frustration was too much for his tiny puppy brain.

My ob drop-in class is likely moving the class time up to 6:30. I can change my work schedule for a short time but not indefinitely. They were going to do it immediately but she decided to hold a 5 week CGC class, which will keep it at 7:30, but only for 5 weeks. Argh.

I got some good thoughts from Denise on our awful first video. I really did hesitate to post it, because a frustrated dog and trainer aren't really what I wanted to put out there, but I think it's good to have different levels of success in the videos for everyone to see. She says in the intro that the class is meant for pure beginners, but so many of the other gold students have a pretty firm grasp on things already. Maybe my fumbles will help someone else who is also just starting out.

Anyway, I decided to chuck the frisbee and work with a different disc. I had such a low rate of reinforcement because he wasn't getting both feet fully on the disc. After going to something taller, where it's easy for him to know if his feet are on or off, we had a much better session today. I'll take video tonight or tomorrow morning.

At least Watson puts his feet calmly on the disc. When I started with Kris, she thought the object was to pounce on it with her two front feet and make sure it did not get away. If that did not work, grab it up and run off with it.

Now that I am trying to do a 2o2o for Agility I cannot stop her from slamming both feet down but will keep trying.
