    Have you read any of Marie's books?

    I'm looking at getting Ring Ready or Rally On and was wondering if you've read them.

    Yup, that's her! And Presto.... I love Presto...

    I should probably pick those up sometime. Wonder if it's too late to add them to the christmas list....

    KATE!! DO NOT BUY RING READY!! (uh... remember how Henery wanted to send Baloo something in the mail?? Well, he hasn't gotten it to the postbox yet, it's still on our dining room table! Just pretend to be surprised when you open it!)

    Sorry Laura, had to get that out of the way.

    I have both of Marie's books, and I think they're fabulous!! Incidentally, I bought Rally On at a CARO rally competition last year, where Marie was a judge. This was waaaay before we started training with her, I just knew of her from reputation. She even autographed it for me (I'm SUCH a groupie!).

    I bought Ring Ready earlier this year when I decided to start doing competitive obedience with Henry. Little did I know that one day I would be training with her!!

    This is why I like it... it's unlike other obedience books that just teach you the exercises... hers is more problem solving. For example, in her heeling chapter if your problem is laggy sits...

    Check your handling
    1. is your stride too big after your brake step?
    2. was the dog in proper heel position before you started the heel sequence?

    Check your dog
    1. is he rocking back into a sit position instead of doing a tuck sit?

    For each question, she offers a solution (or two) as well as how to retrain the exercise, if necessary. For example, for the tuck sit one, she goes step by step on how to teach a tuck sit.

    I highly recommend both, as an obedience newbie, it's a great resource.

    Oh yes, she finished her OTCh with Quinn last weekend!!! WOOHOO MARIE!!
