What's the difference between a figure 8 and a leg weave? To me that sounds like it should be the same thing?

A figure-8 is a stationary leg weave, or, inversely, weaving is a figure-8 in motion.

Ah ok! I was totally thinking that weaving would make a figure 8 and was confused. We haven't worked on this at all. It's hard with tiny dogs. I hate having to bend down all the time.

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.
Cutest face EVER!!!! <3

I always forget to teach things in both directions or on both sides.

Due to working on this trick I realized that Cohen had a reverse circle in both directions. Who knew??? Basically I think she just pivots until I tell her to stop, or she gets dizzy.

Slooooowly but surely!

Video includes a little bit from training sessions since Thursday I think, so just skip to the last 30 seconds or so if you want to see where we're at now.

Me too, I'm surprised I don't have a crab dog. One strong side and one wimpy side lol

Talon can now pivot around my legs in both directions! We are going to start working on putting it all together next!

We have backwards weaves! Very slow, very methodical, lots of mistakes... but I think they still count. Will post video proof tonight.
