Olives First Grown-up Dog Workshop
We worked on our boxes today. Came home with much to work on. But also came home with a very positive outlook on how we are progressing. Her jumping really looks great. She has deceleration and acceleration. She does go around and come in off of jumps once in a while, but I believe that will fade as understanding of her job continues to build.
The drills were no more than 8 jumps and I often broke it down to 3-4 jumps. If she got distracted I didn't make a big deal out of it, just picked her up and put her away and the next person went. After a few, I'd bring her out again and she would be focused and eager to work...funny how that is :)
The video is only a few shorts of the drills we worked on, I have about an hour of video to keep me grounded and give me loads to practice.
Overall I am very excited. Training is so frigg'n fun!!!
I had planned on staying for the afternoon, but the morning session wiped me out. Came home coughing and wheezing and took a nap. Feel much better now!
