Default The Trainers Game

Ok, I am bored!!!!!!!!!!! Can't do much actual training because of this damned disease at this time and I am not competing at this time. So my brain needs to be worked.
This is the game:
Give a brief case history of a problem: breed, sex, age and problem. Then the rest of us ask questions and ideas of how we would solve the issue. Then the trainer that posted the 'problem' can tell us how they solved it.

Want to play??

No, I don't wanna play. I don't want to think. I have a trial this weekend, no time to fix or second guess things, just go out and perform and have it all come together on the same day. Maybe next week

OK...I'll start this party off.

Give a brief case history of a problem: breed, sex, age and problem.
Training a dog for schutzhund obedience. She was about 2 years old, a mix - aussie and rott, spayed, adopted from a shelter at about 8 months, very high prey drive.

She was solid on retrieving the dumbbell, she was solid on going over the schutzhund a-frame. She couldn't put the two together. When we attempted the retrieve over the a-frame, she would either go over the a-frame, get the dumbbell, come back to the a-frame and plant her butt on the ground at the base of it, or she would spit out the dumbbell and come back over the a-frame and sit in front of me.

Ok, I've never trained shutzhund, and I've never taught a retrieve over a barrier.... But how about backchaining - put the dumbell on the bottom of the a frame on the side closest to you, and have her retrieve it from there. Then put it higher and higher on the a-frame, until she's comfortable retrieveing it from the top of the a-frame. Then start moving it down the other side, so she has to go over the a-frame and pick it up and bring it back, until you've got it back on the bottom on the far side.

A very good idea, and I did in fact try that. It was unsuccessful.

The retrieve was taught using a plastic conduit, it was taught using positive motivation/backchaining, and later, mild corrections were introduced if needed once she understood the exercise.

The retrieves were performed in a multitude of locations, with numerous distractions, and using several objects.
