Here is my video, the turn around part feels slow, assuming it’s due to my mechanics

Stefanie

I tried again today, felt better in this session

Patty O'Bleness

Here’s our Backup Recall. Sorry, jumped the gun before you reviewed the last one.

And about the tagging, your name does not come up when I try to tag you.

Patty O'Bleness

Thanks Daisy. Is it ok to post another video of this with better bending? I’m also having trouble getting her to stay in the heel position immediately after the cookie, additional cookies to keep her there maybe? I hadn’t noticed until I edited the video to keep it short. I might try cheese and holding onto it longer to keep her nibbling while she gets into position and is held there longer. And yay! On the lights! I’m that kind of person too that would rather do it myself than pay someone to do it, even if it’s harder, but… Read more Β»

@Daisy Peel The lower cookie and slowing it down seems to help. We’ve worked on this a few times today and I see it’s better on the right hand, need some more work on the left. (Interesting that I’m struggling with that side with Jazzie)

Patty O'Bleness

Thanks, I can see that I’m just a bit sloppier on the left. Will work on that, thanks for the feedback! Really enjoying working through this.

Well, this is a little awkward and silly, but we’ll improve as we practice more! She does seem to be bending nicely! πŸ˜€

agilitymalinois

Ohhhh! I read that and promptly forgot which is why video review by someone else is so helpful. Here we go again with another try, I am so happy to be doing this, and the awkward push as well when we get to it as I just feel I never taught my talented older dog what she needed to know to truly excel. Then again, she has always been happy just to be with me and be working with me, titles don’t matter to her of course. She’s always #1 to me. (edit: always a challenge to review instruction, train,… Read more Β»

OK, here is “Take 3”, which includes my feet together as she starts out. See if this one is better. Thank you!

agilitymalinois

Ahhh, I see what you’re saying. I will do again. That is the advantage of a class versus just reading the book. Sometimes you just don’t get it reading words and you need someone to watch what you’re doing. Thank you!

agilitymalinois

OK, here it is low and slow…I still don’t see a lot of bending but I know she CAN bend from watching her in the “circle a cone” exercise. Perhaps more practice will help, provided my mechanics are good here. See what you think. Thanks!

agilitymalinois

Thank you. It’s starting to sink in. Appreciate your patience with explaining over and over! πŸ™‚

Shelby

Here is our back up recall. Watching the video now, I think on the second repetition, I am not rotating my hips back enough, is that right? Also with the third repetition, I didn’t have him sit because I was so pleased with how well he came into heel on the left side!!! Progress πŸ™‚

Alisa Healy

So these were interesting lol! I know I’m biased, but I do think the larger the dog, the harder these may be. It was hard to get them to do the turn and actually bend, not just rotate. I will say I did a few BURTH recalls before these ones in the video and I could see I wasnt setting them up right so hopefully they’re on a better line here. I’m new certain I’m still doing something wrong so please let me know!

Alisa Healy

I just rewatched you demo video and I can see I was holding my inside arm much wider than you were. I was doing that because they wont be able to turn as tightly as a smaller dog and I was worried they would just pivot around if they were cramped. If my arm position is problematic I can try it again.

Alisa Healy

Oh that’s good to hear! Having your feedback is so helpful, otherwise I wouldn’t know if I was on the right track or not. I can get caught up with my perfectionist tendencies so it’s good to have your eye or I might never progress from lesson to lesson LOL! Onward!

Sasha

These recordings provide great feedback on how much I need to work both sides of my body to provide better information!

When does is this class scheduled to end?
Thank you

Sandy Mullis

Yes – he is definitely noodley boy! And he and I are extremely thrilled to back to normal activity! I’m sure you can imagine a 5 -6 month old BC on limited activity for 6 weeks yikes!

Here is our back up recall to heel video.

Sandy Mullis

okay – I reviewed my video and do see what you’re talking about. Is it okay to redo the video?
I’m also thinking it might be a good idea to not lead out so far for a while until we get that decal and bend you’re talking about?

Sandy Mullis

Here is my redo of the backup recall. I can see two things that could be a problem in the video that I wasn’t really aware of until I watched the video. I don’t seem to be cueing a side for him very well as he is a bit confused as to what side to come to at least once. Also, when filming from the side I see that he has a little pounce when he reaches me. Am I doing something to cause that?

Sandy Mullis

Hi Daisy – I went ahead and redid the lesson. Your suggestions were very helpful. As you will see I did go ahead and read Linda’s suggestions also.

Sandy Mullis

Thanks Daisy, I think we’re on close to the right track now. And yes, we’ll continue to work on this.

Hello! I am wondering about the language you are using with these recalls. Are you just using your release word or are you calling them to come/heel?
