    DefaultDid an agility seminar with Robbie today..

    instructor was Bonnie Simmons..it was mainly on jumping..and crosses...the little bug did great..a few run offs but generally came back quickly when called...also got some info on how to teach them to regulate their stride and to teach them to go on independently of you..some things to think about and try....*G*....I was very proud of him..this was the first time he did a full day of anything...and other than spending alot of the morning scratching in his crate.. :-(..when he wasn't working he was quite a good boy...He really did work wonderfully and everyone liked him .. Of course.

    sounds like a great seminar. What did she suggest for having them work on without you? I'm curious.

    basically she used a series of jumps (the same ones she uses for stride regulating) with a treat on an upside down bucket at the end (not unlike training a touch command)..it would work best to start with 2 people (one to put the treat on the bucket)..but we had 5 jumps and you are staying at one end while the dog jumps the line..it is suppose to encourage indepent jumping..and teach the go on
