I'm super impressed by all the backward weaves. I'm not sure I have the chops for that.

Ok, that's encouraging. I'll have to remind her of her pivots and then just keep going from there (which of course means she'll forget to stop when I ask her to heel, lol, but that's okay because we really don't do any obedience).
Going to try this tonight.

So, Yarrow was in a really funny mood today, this is about what our "weave" session looked like, lol.

He can be such a dork.



Oh and sorry about Onyx barking, bad girl.

krissy, I had the same problem when I started working with Talon on it yesterday. It's so frustrating when he nearly does a handstand to keep his butt from going under my leg and instead goes up on his front feet and lifts his hind end around my legs.

BUT, we did get a through the legs once or twice and jack potted it. I think it may have to do with my position, I think it helped when I went as close to his front as possible and lifted the other leg up a bit so he didn't feel so inclosed. I figure I can just lower my leg until it's all the way on the ground again as he get's better at it.

Everyones video's are so cool so far!

Sara, do you ever use the backwards figure-8 in a routine? It seems a bit ungainly and, to me, feels like I'd just want a backwards weave instead.

I kind of just shaped Jari pivoting around my leg sort of. Then he added in the moving back part on his own.

So do you ask for a pivot and then move your body so they end up backing under a leg? That's what I was trying to do this morning, and I ended up with him pretty much sitting between my legs every time like I was riding a hobby horse. I'm not sure I'm really communicating much of anything to him other than that I'm just fooling around being silly.

Cricket and Bamm already know this so I think I'm going to give it a shot with Joey.

So this is were we are at with the one direction going backwards around my leg.



It's not the greatest, but it's progress ^_^

I started doing this and than realized he doesn't know pivot in the CCW direction. So we are going back to learning to pivot CCW instead of CW. Hopefully he'll be able to do both directions and we can start putting it all together and making it prettier.
