More Running contact stuff....

I am adding different obstacles before and after the dogwalk...varying my reward (sometimes out in front, sometimes thrown etc. She is getting it!

She DID decide yesterday that it was SUPER hard running a dogwalk into the sun at dusk...her first few misses...but she figured it out :) Didn't get that on video though...but they were funny! LOL

I am going to see if I can time them...they ARE getting faster and I would love to see what she is running it in :)

Aframes--handling sequences into and out :) Working turns and lateral distance for gambles...giving directionals L or R...going very well :) Oh, and did my first rear cross on the A-frame..she did very well with that :)

Looks good...

question..have you ever had an issue with her missing the up contact because she is running so fast??

Nope, we have videos of that as well :) 3-4 in the yellow the same as she does on the down side :)

We timed her today and she is about 1.6 seconds.

WOW that is a great time and it will only get faster....

I am sure it could be an issue, but I haven't ran into it with Lynn.

Thanks, yes she gets faster each time we train it :)
