Basic Scent Discrim and Tracking
Keep working on her Agility foundations
Keep working on breaking down her DR
Continue to tidy up her heeling
The retrieve
Stand for exam

Tricks - ride a skateboard, FINISH her handstand, take item to a place etc. I use these for demo's for training students to show them how shaping works.

I'm basically using her to toy with a lot of the stuff I want to get right from the start with (hopefully) early 2015 puppy. I still have trialling in agility as a goal but it just keeps getting pushed back.

Stimulus Control. And lots of tricks, but mostly stimulus control. I like planning, but I don't actually like having a plan.

We are also gearing up for a hopeful ORT with both in spring. My main goal is debut Summer in akc agility in spring though her weaves aren't as good as Mia's. work through Mia's weirdness too.

My list:

In the immediate future, serps, threadles, tunnel threadles and blinds. Plus we had a bit of trouble with our forced front crosses (me not her lol) and teaching straight line 'go'.

Continue tunnel proofing, bar proofing and passing obstacles without doing them.

Continued teeter work, then add other contact equipment and slowly increase height.

The end of Jan or there about the goal is to start 2x2s.

I need to get her out more and work in new distracting environments.

Keep working on Kris Obedience until Agility foundation in February. I take her over to a friend's every Tuesday to practice in her large basement and also working on Rally signs with her.

Give Remmy and Lucy time off from Agility until Feb.

Just for the record, I forget how much stalls hurt when you start working on a new one. My shoulder stall is coming along nicely and their aim is pretty good (though Traveler still thinks drapping himself across my shoulders like a cat is what I want) but everytime they misjudge a bit and I get nails in my neck I want to cry.

Hey! You remembered the word-Stimulus Control!

In all seriousness I'm working on impulse control (sorta similar!) like crazy because my dogs are seriously lacking in it. We're working on using perch to hold stays during anything because I would like one day to be able to have them hold it while I teach.

And yes, I did buy two stools just for the dogs. One is pink and one is blue.

Actually, teaching "stay" in general. I lost it somewhere.
Beg/standing during foot/back stalls.

I love Chaz for inspiration on new tricks and behaviours.
A: How did you start your foot rebound? I'm planning on starting that and am trying to gather a plan of action

B:Spin -> rebound, is that a spin into a rebound? Or you spinning while she does rebounds off you?

C: What is stay? I know exactly where you are coming from. That's why I'm happy they at least get stay when they're sitting on something. I love when I'm trying to take a group shot and my stay is "Staaaay, wait, wait, staaaaay, wa----Ok, nevermind then."

Stay is the bane of my existence with Mia. She's good if there's a visual thing there to stay on-like a mat or couch or even a target. But on her own nope no way. Summer has a solid stay though.

We're kind of taking it easy at the moment. At home, I'd really like to reduce some obnoxious attention-getting behaviors. And always, always working on passing and On By on the skis.

I had a hip/chest rebound already, so I just introduced a platform into it (I wrapped a large hardcover book in a fleece sweatshirt) and started asking for rebounds on that while it hovered around my hip. Once you've got it on a platform, you can start moving it anywhere. Move platform to foot (but don't fall over), ???, profit.

Spin -> rebound is a spin into a rebound. Cohen's rebound form goes to pot after a spin. She's all loose and gangly (and possibly dizzy) and hits much lower. So I'd like to maintain stiffer criteria to raise it up a bit since I really like the sequence.

Me spinning while she rebounds could be interesting... or really awkward.

I keep half-working on rebounds with Payton and then getting distracted. I want a frickin' dog catch more than anything but I can't convince him to trust me to do it LOL. He's all "Are you sure? You really want me to jump up there? Really? You won't be like OW GOD )(#*(! after I do it??"
