    DefaultYES!!!!

    Emilu and I were "having lessons" tonight and she made a major breakthrough. She did really well with everything we went over, and LOVES her new jumps - but the best thing of the evening was this- when I put her in a sit/stay and walked away to do her recall, she actually hunkered down a little and looked "anticipitory" and excited to do the command - like "call me mamma- I just can't wait till you call me!" She literally flew up to hill to me when I gave her the command. I have never seen her look like this before for the recall. This is the dog that used to wander up slowly to me, if at all without a second command or correction. I think she finally realizes what the command is all about. Just a small happiness in dog training*

    I love watching a dog suddenly "get it" and I have noticed that sometimes something we struggled with on the last training session she suddenly does perfect the next session. I wonder sometimes if they think about stuff after we are done with a training session?? I know everyone will tell me that out of sight out of mind applies to dogs but still....

    Bravo!!! Isn't it FUN!!!

    At our first trial Ruger ran so fast and so hard on the recall that he ploughed into me nearly knocking me out of the ring. I don't know how I managed to stand upright. I made a "oof" sound as he hit me. But he hit and sat and the judged laughed out loud, along with the spectators, and the judge said, "The exhuberance of youth!!" and he docked us 1 point. Oh well. We still got a leg that day!!!

    My second favorite part of training is when "I" get it. Sometimes I am a bit dense. When doing the down with her in the heel position she would always angle across in front of me as she would lay down. for months I fought with her on this, then someone (a person with an OTCH) told me to just move my left leg forward about a foot then tell her down...It worked!!!!! something so simple. Then over a period of about 4 weeks I just kept moving my left foot less and less forward before I told her down. Now I don't have to move my foot at all. No fights or corrections just a simple movement on my part...Geesh
