Daisy Graduated Advanced Agility (video)

Post by rtropeano »

Daisy graduated advanced agility this past Sunday. She is really making good progress. We still have lots of trouble with contacts, but she seems to
be working at a distance a little better (which is golden for an out of shape handler who doesn't run very fast)

We will be taking advanced agility again - because there are things that I want to work on - like contacts - before we start competing in CPE Level 1.
We have a fun match labor day weekend - then camp, where will do more agility and other fun things like Rally, Treiball, tracking....then back to class :)

Thanks - she's really good on the start line - I love the part where it looks like she was going to go and she held back. When she was a pup we worked hard on stay - so, thus far it hasn't been a problem..

Now contacts...oy!! Deceleration does not exist - any body have and slow down tricks... we're going to need them.

There's a current 'trend' in using running contacts on the a-frame because it's less stressful on the front shoulders and wrists. But a real contact on the dogwalk and teeter is a must! I'm assuming you've trained on a plank on the floor? I'd say do tons of work on that and then put her back on the contact in position if she doesn't stop. I've seen clicker training make a big difference in getting a dog to understand what is expected. Also, when you treat for a contact, be sure you are facing front [the direction away from the obstacle] and feed with the hand that's on the dog side - no feeding across your body or turning to face the dog. You can drop the treat between her front feet as she comes into position.

Good luck and patience, patience, patience. :D

Thanks, I think I'm going to try clicker training, because Daisy responds to that and get my own plank :)
Appreciate the advice.
