Here are our sends with no motion . Thanks.

I do have questions about this. I do notice that in general the farther away I get, the looser her circle around the cone. I suppose this is natural as she has more speed and would need to decel more when she hits the cone to wrap tighter. Should I not allow this loosening to occur? Or is it natural and I shouldn’t worry about it? We have no handler motion at this point she she is not really digging in super hard but I imagine adding handler motion will certainly add speed but will not make her wrap tighter.… Read more »

Oops It was accidentally marked private. Please try again. You will see she isn’t really loosening in her circle as I mentioned above in these videos but in practice I could observe it as I moved out further. And it not due to her not caring, it is really due her desire to get back to me as quickly as possible. I am being careful to jackpot tight turns and will think about placement of rewards as we move forward. Thanks!

That’s really interesting, thank you! In my mind turning more quickly would make her wrap tighter because the new line is presented. And I thought it was a step toward obstacle focus. I would think facing her would slow her down. So time to experiment! I will head outside later today and try it both ways.

Here is our video:

He knows to anticipate the turn so her is actually going a little wide on the approach, I assume this is ok since he’s finding his line and it’s not ridiculously wide, but would love to hear your thoughts on it

Unfortunately we were limited to my basement for these. I leave on Sunday for 9 days so I’m really trying to wrap up this course before I go. It’s getting cold here in Chicago and with it getting dark earlier I had no time to practice outside:(

Alisa Healy

Okay, makes sense! I think I have “complete the cross as quickly as possible” drilled into my brain lol. When I first started agility I would almost stop and watch my dog halfway through the cross so it feels funny to do that now haha! I want to try these again using your suggestions when I get home. Is Level 2 up for purchase now?

Talk about going slow…I finally was able to finish the last 2 units with Ruby! I think these look better than my first attempt and i was able to use a bigger space.

Daisy, this one still needs feedback.

We’re skipping the 90 Degree Turns right now because I’m not understanding the body language.
So, onto something more fun.
Here’s our send around a cone.

This feel like the same exercise we did, but here is our send around a cone with some good distance.

Patty O'Bleness

Ha ha! Maybe that’s because we did the same one twice!

daisy peel Here is my send around cone with no motion video. Please let me know if I need to work these more before moving on and adding motion. As you an see he doesn’t really need my motion for his inspiration to move 😯 I did a few further out (out of the camera’s field) I think he could use more practice on those about 20 feet out – I needed to hold my arm out until he got to the cone or he would turn back. I think perhaps my dropping my arm may have caused him to… Read more »
