    Welcome back JTDNTB

    They say a week is a long time in politics. I will say it can be a long time on dog forums too.

    Nothing major has happened with me or Frosty though - we're all good, working on our obedience and agility and I went without Frosty to watch an Obedience competition and help my club set up for it. Some dogs were amazingly good, and some dogs were gobsmackingly naughty.

    Hey Hyca, really good to hear that nothing has gone on with you and Frosty, you know the saying; no news is good news!

    I have realised since being at mums how much of a nervous wreck Bailey really is so it has become a working progress for us both to try and make her realise that she is now safe and I wont let anything happen to her. It breaks my heart to no end to think what she must have been through when I was not home, to make her the way she is.

    I have decided that to try to put Bailey's nervous energy to good use, I would try agility training. I am also working on all the general stuff like following basic commands EVERY TIME! however she is really really enjoying the agility side of things. However we are only doing it on lead and for jumping I have chosen the command "bounce" to try and disassociate it from jumping in every day life (hope that makes sense! lol) so she will not continue to jump the fence and think it is ok.

    Its such hard work to do - I commend you for putting in the effort with Frosty. If you have any advice please feel free to throw it my way lol Im going to need all the help and advice I can get

    Thank you for the welcome

    Hi JTBNTD

    I need to write some updates for my agilty thread.

    I've put in the dog training section where you can get some agility e book download too, not that I've read it (oops) yet.

    I got Frosty to do a lot of the course by getting her to follow one of her small tug toys. It worked better than using the treat for a lure.

    For weaves - I really need to get some poles set up at home - otherwise she's not going to get it any time soon. The tuesday morning class set up some half size poles (imagine a broom pole cut in half - with a tent peg attached to the bottom with a metal hose clamp) and then the poles were angled so the dog could run through the middle without any weave action at all. And always leave the first pole in the row on the dogs's left shoulder. No matter which way you're going. And try to stay level with the dog ie shouder to knee sorta. And tug pulling your dog through the weaves is not a good look - so best to say "leave it" and wait until she does before continuing...

    And we use the command "over" for jumping the poles and there is a lot of waving and encouragement involved - and trying to get co-ordinated so you cover the smallest distance for the maximum value.
