    DefaultPlease Watch This! Remy Tunnel YES....

    I just wanted to post this to show you that Remington is not stupid, and I am not a horrible trainer either

    I also want to apologize if I inadvertently made anyone who replied to my Remington threads feel like I was pissy with them, I do NOT mean to come off that way, but sometimes when I read my posts it looks that way. Internet communication does have flaws you know.

    I am very appreciative of everyone's input on this and it has given me a lot of food for thought. Thank you.

    So here is some tidbits from our training practice this morning. I was focusing on jackpotting the jumps, not the tunnel, and also working at setting him up at the jumps to land facing and heading into the tunnel so I could work at pulling him away from the tunnel.

    I think we had a good session. I would appreciate any feedback you can share. Thank you again.

    Linda,

    You arn't an ogre. It's so frustrating when you have a problem only at trials and do not know how to fix it. I have a couple of suggestions. I would use a target word when he does something right. I use "yes". I use this in training and it transfers to trials well. It allows me to give feedback on the course when I can't have the cookie. I would try a more dramatic deceleration cue with him if you are trying to avoid the tunnel. Running like crazy and then a lean backwards to show decel and aid in his collection before an obstacle. I think jackpotting the jumps and not the tunnel is the way to go. The tunnel is already rewarding enough for him You done good!

    I am not sure. is this the dog that has a tunnel problem in trials? If it is, I don't think the video conveys the problem. I think he is doing just great and having fun with you.

    My target word is YES. I use it like a clicker. You just aren't hearing me say it, but I do use it a lot for the behaviour I want, and then I treat. I can't "run like crazy" anymore .... getting old sucks.

    Yes, this is my tunnel dog I wanted to post this video to show that he DOES do the tunnel and very well
