Then you'll be happy to know that I have finally been removed from "moderation" on that other board we are both on. It only took two years of being nice to get that accomplished :devil:

Re: One More Time

Personally I think I am less concerned about the pros and more concerned about the people emulating the pros and then adding their own little spin to the game to "make it their own". That and the impatient nature of human kind to have that dog ready to compete at the strike of midnight the...

One More Time

Its been so long since I actually posted anything here I forgot how! Idiot Anyway, the Clean Run Facebook page posted a link to the proposed(?) changes to KC agility and of course that includes the debate of the 4th height. I naturally went to the Agilitynet Facebook page where I am simply a fly on...

Food for Thought

Just putting this out there as some mind food. Not sure how I feel about this person's comments but it has stimulated some thinking on my part :hmmm:

Re: Help!!! Canine pole picking conundrum.....

I had a lab in one of my classes once that stole the number cones while running sequences. I brought a ring toy and gave it to the dog on the start line. After a while of running with the ring, the cone stealing subsided as there was no reinforcing of that behavior going on. For that dog, I think th...

Re: Missing the first jump

Hi Sue To add to Mary's suggestion of setting the dog back from the jump a bit, this may also help the dog with its take off point. Not all dogs are natural jumpers nor do they all have confidence in the process. I would work on some one jump drills then build it up from there (2 jumps, 3 etc). Dav...

Re: Brillo International Bounce

from the advert

"The Brillo International Bounce Final will consist of 2 rounds (1 Agility and 1 Jumping) for each size of dog which will not be timed (max course time specified) "

Not timed, Is that for real?

Re: Waiting

I think people have offered advice in the past and then been shot down in flames by others so it rather puts people off. No on ever shoots anyone down here or on the Agilitynet Facebook page. Never happens :devil: You can also use the forum search feature, type in "startline stay" an...

Re: Weaving method?

That is Zen in the videos. Due to injury, Frankie has been retired. I play with him over low jumps and tunnels but weaving and contacts are not performed. He doesn't care as long as I do something with him. The video with Que in it was taken in early May. She just turned 26 and she and I just celeb...

Re: Weaving method?

Mary Because I train by myself and don't have extra eyes to critique me (no eye jokes!) I video about 75% of my training sessions. I have loads of video most of which I hate to watch as I hate to watch myself and the stupid things I do. Here is some more weave action where I only look sort of the cl...

Re: Your First Agility Class

It never was-that was the problem I think that is sort of the same for me. I have only had a year and a half of actual instruction in the 15 years I have been doing agility. The whole subject of relationship was never discussed and it was something I had to learn the hard way. In my opinion I ru...

Re: Your First Agility Class

Rather than start a new thread.....

When was the concept of "relationship" brought up in your training classes and how was that subject approached?

Re: Weaving method?

:agree: I have trained three different ways. Luring, clicker, and channel. The two dogs I trained channel started as puppies so we had a long period of time before they actually weaved. I used the open channel in place of a tunnel so our straight line sending through jump standards ended with them...
