Ups and Downs
Had class last night for Fin.
Popped the weaves 4 times. Brain totally fried. Then, she starts doing the weaves, wicked fast and stops at the end. Just stops. Looks at me. Targets the ground. Looks at me. Does this new thing 3 times. Oh Booooyyyy! This is fun, NOT!
The popping out. I need to work more on running by her as fast as I can. That's what I was doing last night and she wanted to chase me and then didn't know what to do after that. I think the stopping behavior happened because she was confused as to what I wanted.
She was really wired. Took out a jump. I'm not really happy as she can hurt herself. I know it is my fault. I wasn't where I needed to be, she got out of position and when I redirected her she slammed into the side of the jump. No self preservation.
Last run of the night was the best, but it was so dark, I was having trouble seeing.
I need to run faster. It is what it is.
So the confidence that I had from Sunday. The cockiness and swagger...well those are gone now.
I'm just a humble agility bum praying to the agility god in the sky for fair weather, good turf, and a dog that can break her crack habit.
