    Yes cool pix newfsie.

    I think there are bugger all pix of my dog doing obedience and a couple of her "Tunnel riding" instead of going through the tunnels at a mock agility trial. Ie a grand day of practicing like as if it was a trial but isn't.

    My ACD has a rock solid remote drop. I made sure she knew how to drop at heel and then I started up close facing her and used a hand signal and voice. I only increased the distance as she became rock solid at each distance. Now I just have to give the hand signal and she will drop instantly at any distance she can still see my hand. I think the key is to progress at the speed at which the dog understands and performs the drop 100% as the distance is slowly lengthened.

    She is an excellent obedience dog and got her novice in 3 goes with 2 first placings, but unlike Newfsies dogs she finds it boring which is a shame. She gets a very ACD stubborn look on her face when I take her to trials and the only thing she really enjoys is the dumbell retrieve and the jumping.

    Hopefully she might enjoy RallyO when it comes.

    My dogs love obedience training and Demo team work, but i have the same problem as you at trials.....We go into go-slow mode and I sometimes think it is me, nerves.
    Now you are talking...... Rally-O. Went to a Seminar with a lady who is a Judge in i think Canada and it was awesome. So much fun and you can talk to your dog all you like, just not touch. We do the same in our Demo team, you can talk. I hate the not be able to encourage your dog

    It is strange how they do that isnt it - the go slow mode! Mine is like a rocket in agility but obedience NO WAY! I have noticed it is very common.

    I am the same as you - I think the encouraging and talking will make it all the difference - I really look forward to RallyO

    Yes I also think that lot of Judges have a certain "air" about them, that doesn't help. And it is so quiet, you can hear a pin drop

    Hi,

    I think remote drop will be challenging for my minis as he used to wait for my signal to chase a ball etc. But we will get there. I always try to make any training to be fun. Hauser actually likes to be with us (I guess without chookie)

    I want to join a agility class this year but I am not sure as I will be in and out of here a few times this year.
    I love cooking but I love eating even more.
