Hi Daisy, here is our next video Lol, it’s really funny how things I tend to do very frequently turn out to become rather hard to execute when I start thinking about what I am doing and when ๐Ÿ™‚ Again, after watching the video, I realize that I am not running on a straight line although I thought I was. And timing was tricky, too. We did two training sessions today. To avoid patterning I mixed it up with right side/left side trials (but I didn’t move the jumps, so no perfect mirror) and some forward motion fc’s (they still… Read more ยป

Thank you @Daisy Peel for this valuable feedback and reminder of purposeful practice (I also very much appreciated this weeks newsletter of your Agility Challenge)! Yes, you were completely right, I didn’t manage to see Dizzy commit to the first jump most of the time although I thought I should. In fact I was also very much concentrating on running in a straight line, so my timing was really miserable. With the trainers I’m exercising once or twice a month I am famous for not trusting/babysitting my dogs, so they always keep telling me NOT to observe them all the… Read more ยป

We did also today do some BC. But even though it has cooled off, the sun was very bright, causing my little black dog to decide pretty quickly it is hot outside. I see in the video, that I did not run straight, I kind of move over in front of him. I was really thinking about trying to look back at him, as I read you comment about that and not sure if when doing that I just fell off my line? We only did a couple as he had for sure slowed down and looked hot. It will… Read more ยป

Saturday became the tale of two dogs as we finally got some nice weather and we headed outside to work on some of our homework. The first time out we had bar, bar, bar….I was uncertain what was going on but finally headed back home as I was getting more and more frustrated. We both ate lunch, took a nap, I looked at the video and we headed back out. These were my ideas about what went wrong-I think some combination of the, all -wet grass -jumps set too close together – late cues – moving into his path I… Read more ยป

Thank you for your explanation of the A+ blind cross being that you can say that you saw the dog lifting behind you. This gives me a clear goal.

After you posed the question about how you would change your rotation on the front cross relative to the 2nd jump if you wanted to push to the back of the 3rd jump, I wanted to try it.

Daisy, here are some more blind crosses. I tried to be earlier but I think I’m still crossing after the lift off. I was wondering about the dropped bar, but when I looked at it on slow motion I saw that she stepped on the jump base. I guess I crowded her path.

Hi Daisy. Here is our blind cross.

Call me determined! Went back out to the field to try again!

Hi Daisy – Here are our Blinds. You mentioned on someone else’s video that should be able to watch their dog lift for the jump prior. That kind of concrete timing feedback is super helpful and something to shoot for. Here are our blind crosses.

Harli has a rather short attention span so I can only do a few reps of the same drill before she starts to check out. It would be helpful for me to be able to access all of your videos for the lesson so I can mix them up. But in order to do that I need to mark them complete. Will that mess you up?

ClairePutman

Hi Daisy. Here is our rerun of the forward motion blind cross.

Thank you. Claire.

Jenni Young

Hi Daisy, I just did this once when I did my FMFC’s yesterday he has never done one like this only a simple one out of a tunnel. I thought I would check in and then attempt a couple more.

Daisy, I think a light finally came on when I read the last sentence in your last review…I marked the field…still trying to run a straight line…

Shenna Lemche

Moo and I seem to struggle a bit less with blinds. I see my lines wave more than I thought so I might run these again tomorrow. ?

Forward motion blind cross :

Hello Daisy,

i did exercise it again and it looks better than first time. Also this time i post it in the right section.

Our previous exercise you have seen, but i place it here as well as you advised, if other participants do look.

dana.ruda

I have to repeat it and be careful to do the arm change in time and have my eyes back to see the dog before he jumps. I shall redo it with this in mind. Thanks! Nice that you are in Sweden, surrounded by agility world ๐Ÿ™‚ i hope you shall enjoy it a lot.

PamAnthony

So I commented on my thread above and posted some more video, but it says comment waiting moderation….not sure what that means so let me know if I need to post again.

I like your suggestion of making sure you SEE your dog take off when doing a BC. IMHO, Badly timed BCs are more dangerous than badly timed FCs because you lose sight of your dog. And then, anything can happen ๐Ÿ™‚

Hahaha. I decided to use this video as demo # 1 since my training program is interrupted again due to the incoming typhoon which will hit our province. Thank God, it is not as severe as forecast.
