I'm totally failing at my homework already and the class hasn't even started.
You can use anything! I used trees a lot, a pot for a plant, a PVC post, a normal post, a plunger... anything!

Well, I couldn't find my traffic cones, but it just so happens I actually bought a plunger at the Dollar Store as one of my 'weird things' for Payton! So we're using that LOL.

Nothing at the moment, but being around a bunch of dogs all day that don't know "anything" is making me want to get back to training

Only an obed nerd can appreciate this but I just ran backup into a fence in a heel, actual face to the fence-klunk! I threw a party. Our first NQ, lol, was from heeling too close to a fence, per a judge, and he popped over after feeling too much pressure. Ahhhh how we've matured.

LOL!! That's awesome!!

I can't even count the number of times Zuma has run into something heeling through a trial. She snarks at other dogs on leash so we heel whenever we are walking through crowds and she's run into countless tables, counters, chairs, people legs, etc. I always feel awful because I always forget that she's focusing on me and not where she's walking.

lol poor Zuma! We've always been able to with a tug lure under my arm but he's so hyper aware if his surroundings I am just beyond thrilled this happened sans a reward, I dug for a treat and roughed him up while scanning the room for a ball. We repeated this into a wall and it wasn't a fluke. I'm so happy.

Also, my trainer worked him today (my movement and timing suck for jump drive work) and he did very well with her.

We're working on impulse control... The never ending battle. lol

Went to a drop in obedience class with Skye tonight. I was half expecting her to be...bad. We've never done anything formal in a class. I've put some basics on her but never asked much of her 'out and about'.

I'm incredibly proud of her tonight. For all the stuff I haven't proofed, and the stuff I know I've never been consistent with, because I really figured we'd never do anything...she's NOT bad. She was nervous at first, and was kind of like uhh, why are you asking me to do this stuff in this NEW place, with these NEW dogs?! Yes...I can do that...but hey look there's a box here..haha. And then she settled in, got in her groove, and did so well. I'm so proud.

Working on Look at me for walks. Henry is a very reactive dog in that if another dog is wild and happy, he is wild and happy. If another dog is stalking and obsessive, he starts stalking and staring obsessively.

He is doing great though. It is still difficult to get his attention in those crucial moments before he's over his threshold, but once you break his concentration on the other dog and focus him on you, he's perfect! I really just think it's my timing.

We make it a game that we play all during our walks and he's getting pretty solid.
