She seems great, so far. Although, tonight will only be the third week with her. She's no nonsense, which is what I like. She obviously has a good track record with training and competing her own dogs. The trainer I had for the first two classes was exceptional also.

That is an excellent training center.. of course my classes are better.. totally just teasing.
Kori runs an great place and she is a wonderful instructor. I know a few of the others that train at her place. Just tell them your concerns and what you would like to do. I do have to tell you though, I love that environment because if you can get your dog to pay attention in that kind of class your dog actually learns to pay attention to you.
Just talk to them and tell them how you feel.

Seeing as this is your Novice A dog I would think it is very difficult to know what is causing those small problems. I feel the best way for you to fix it is for you to SEE it. Get someone or use a tripod to video you and then it might become more apparent.
One thing many of us tend to do is train an exercise the way it will be in the ring and in many cases that is not the best way. Take the figure 8. Throw in about turns, do full circles around the posts and start off in different directions, don't always go to your left as many of us do. Doing this forces the dog to pay closer attention and not just go through the motions.

I SO appreciate all the responses! So many good tips that I can throw into our sessions for the next few weeks.

Titan1 hit the nail on the head when she mentioned getting in sync and becoming a team. I think thats what I'm missing. My dog works his heart out, but I'm still learning how to be very consistent and clear in my handling. Heck, sometimes *I* don't even now exactly where we are going, how could my dog.

Hank, awesome suggestion. I'm lazy about videoing our sessions, doing it only every few months. Need to do that more consistently! Also will work to mix up our work and keep things interesting.

I work with an excellent trainer but only every 6 weeks or so. No classes for hours I love the experience and wisdom to be gained here!

Also love the idea that a couple people mentioned to break off and repeat sections. I don't continue when things go south, but I think I need to be more clear as to why we are breaking and starting over.

I could put even more energy into setting up again and set my dog up to be successful.

Gosh...so hard to be so consistent and self aware! I can barely walk without tripping, let alone steer a dog! LOL

I actually taped a couple UB runs and posted them so I could watch them myself. they are not the best scores but I don't believe I lost any points on the signal exercise. I think it helps to see...
