    Okay, the entry confirmations are coming in which just reminds me of what I did during a bold moment a few weeks ago. That was send in those entries

    We are working away at solidifying the skills.
    • Tightening heeling
    • Working signals with pressure-trainer standing over his butt
    • Working the "touch" point on the go-out
    • Doing go outs running between the jumps only a few feet apart and working them farther out (agility dog sometimes likes to take the jump on his go out)
    • The finish after stand for exam (he wants to front first-any suggestions for this?)
    • Doing goofy things with the articles to make the scented one harder to find.
    • Rewarding individual elements so he doesn't anticipate and blast through things like signals and go outs.


    I plan to go to a run through next Tuesday at Youngstown, the first of three I have on my radar before the event on 10/30.

    Thanks!

    We will be well prepared. It is just the novice in me I have to watch out for. The run thrus are mostly for me to get my process in my head so I don't feel like a deer in headlights!
