So last night only one dog showed up for the "slacker class" so lucky dog Boone got to be a student! I haven't done any classes with any of my dogs in a really long time. (we train all the time, but generally I am teaching the classes...) It was fun to be a student!
We did some fun acceleration/decceleration jump sequences. Boone likes to run straight so this was a perfect exercise for him
We did some teeter games, and worked on turning out of a tunnel up the frame- this was something that was even on my list to practice with him...it was almost like Sarah read my mind :o)
And then we did some contact work on the dogwalk- his contacts are really coming along and he is getting quite consistent about them. I am quite happy with where he is at right now.
We ended on the weaves and he did great- he is getting his entrances but is popping at pole #4...any guesses as to why that is happening? Yup. I train with four poles at home.....Smart thinkin'.....
Regardless I was really impressed that he held it together for a full hour class last night. Usually I work him maybe three or four times a training session and that's that. I am pretty thrilled with this dog!
