Hahaha! Zuma is the same. We are working on smoothing out her reverse circle right now.

So this is our figure 8 lol. I'm totally luring him, and at this point, I'm not even sure he knows what he's doing. But... I guess it's a start?

I've been trying for years to get him to leg weave (while I'm walking) but never worked super hard on it. It's like he understands the concept of going under my legs, and he'll keep doing it, but it's very sloppy. He goes under once, then kind of looks at me for reassurance, then goes under again, looks up at me ... I don't know it definitely needs work.

His default 'leg' behavior is actually going backwards. So I think doing a backwards leg weave and figure 8 is going to be easier, we'll work on this tomorrow!

Proof!

Again, skip to the last 30 seconds if you want the current goods. I'm going to use these videos on my blog later so I wanted them to sort of be a progression.

Thanks.


What do people use to cue all these weaves? lol. Do you use "backward" and "forward" so the dog can differentiate?

Also JacksonsMom that looks great! He's so cute!

I say "weave" for forward, I think a lot of people use "through" though, and "reverse" for backward.

Lol thanks, he was very much in a 'i want to work' mode.

ETA: I have no idea why the sound in my video isn't working. Hmph. Must have done something wrong when I uploaded it.

I think I've heard 'scoop' too for some reason for the backwards weaves.
