Moose had such a great night - actually has me thinkin' maybe I should think about going to a show. We got there a little early so we worked on going backwards from front and he got it finally. And then we worked on the down from call and we have a long ways to go, but he is starting to get it. We are working with a target right now and learning the down hand signal. I was just amazed that he actually did it once.
At the end of class we got to go thru a Rally setup that the instructor had from a private lesson she was teaching. It had 360 right's & lefts, left and right pivots, serpentine and a jump. The first time thru Moose was too interested in the ground, but the 2nd time thru he even got the jump. I was really excited he did so well.
I have to admit however, that this wasn't a show and I was nervous. I think he could do it, just not sure how I'd be

You should try it Sharon! Oh, believe me, I know nervous, but once you get out there everything else just sort of disappears and the only thing you are aware of is your dog. There could be a fleet of flying monkeys right outside the ring and I'd never know it.
It sounds like Moose is doing so well!

Isn't it FUN!! I find that for some reason, I am more nervous and screw up more in class than I do at a show. Have NO idea why :

I think Rally is great for people who get nervous. By the time you get thru all those Rally titles, regular obedience will be no big deal.
