    DefaultRemington....

    My lovely boy... I compiled some video to show him actually succeeding at agility. We've had a horrible season with no Q's and many many tunnel issues. We will continue working hard this summer and try him again in the fall (there aren't agility trials in my area in the summer, too hot outside).

    So I present for you... Bits & Bobs of Remington...

    Linda - Fun to watch!!! His start line stay is GREAT and quick response on the table. Those tunnels are his challenge for sure. Remington sure looks like he's having fun and isn't that really the point?

    I can't tell but in the first part are you clicker training? And does he learn faster that way?

    We've been working very hard on our start line stay... and I've learned to trust him, which is a big thing for me

    Yes, he does have fun... but I'm not having much fun because I'd really like to run a course, and he eats up all our time messing about in the tunnel.

    Yes, I clicker train him. Yes, he does learn faster that way, and it really motivates him. I tried the 2x2 weave method that everyone was so gung-ho on. He did learn to get his entry with that method, but I got no speed at all. So I tossed the 2 x 2 method and began clicking him through the weaves, and then clicking him at the beginning and end of the weaves. It's really helped him focus.

    I've used the clicker for tunnel exits as well, and it works well... at home. Unfortunately I cannot take the clicker in the ring at a trial. I do use it outside of the ring just before we go in to get some attention from him... helps a little bit

    hmmm....interesting. I have been wanting to try clicker for a long time. The noise made my little cavalier nervous so I didn't follow through, but perhaps Pixie will benefit.

    If the noise bothers your dog, start clicker training by using a ball point pen... click the pen, instead of a clicker. A pen makes a much quieter click and many dogs that are fearful of the louder clickers tolerate a pen well, and then you can move up to a clicker once your dog is acclimated to the noise a pen makes. Just a little training hint for you to try
