    DefaultFutility

    Well. Simon has been cooking through utility but in the last trial he aced everything but missed all 4 drops.* Took him out of trials for a month to help him over the hump, did 1,000,000 run-thrus, made up all these wonderful games and his drops have been on fire!* He was dropping with me in a chair, dropping from 100 feet away, dropping while somebody was patting him, dropping with dogs beside him...I have never felt more confident and prepared going into a trial.*
    Took him to his first trial back today and the drops are even worse now and to boot there is no sit or recall.* Oh, and now he's blowing the turn and sits on the go-outs too.
    I have one word for utility....
    AAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAARRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRR RRRRGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHH HHHHHH!!!!!!!!!!!!!!*

    :P

    Okay, I'm not getting it. Where are there "drops" in Utility? We had Drop on Recall in Open, but nothing like it in Utiilty. Can you elaborate on what he is not doing correctly for my confused little brain

    Can't you guess....why the most failed of all exercises: signals :P
    I have never been one to rush dogs into the ring, but he has PRA and is going blind and time is sadly not on our side. I HATE the pressure of being on a schedule :

    How frustrating, especially with the clock ticking.... Does Simon have any legs in Utility already? I hope he'll get his drops right in the ring soon.
