Oh I hope Towhee comes in soon - I have started pulling her from agility trials that I thought she could make, but have closing dates coming up. I have not yet entered her in obedience but am looking at a Novice only double header at Port Chester coming up.

I'll copy this over to the new thread whenever it starts....

We went to an open floor practice thingy today - and it was my first experiment as far as taking the big wire crate and both dogs. And they did awesome. I set the crate up on the far side of the building (the agility side) - well away from the crowd on the other side of the building. And OMG there was a good turnout!! Yay!

Probably the only downside was one person there - we took classes under her a couple years ago with Jacks. She has always struck me as more positive handling in an uber way.... well, she's an agility person mainly. o_O Um. She came up to visit with the gremlin and I quickly let him out of his cage to visit with her (socialization!). Bertie did his usual wriggling happy fit for her. He was sopping wet of course, because he had flipped his water bowl and lay down in the puddle.

She decided to talk to me about handling. This because she taught advanced puppy classes, etc... Handling, meaning training the puppy to hold still while you hold him in your arms on his back in your lap or whatever, let you hold and pinch the paws, let you hold him down on the floor without struggling....

I'm standing there freaking out because of course this is NOT the type of socialization I want Jacks getting. Some strange lady PINNING him. o_O!!!! He's very resillient and the next few people we visited with he was wriggling and bouncing around for them like nothing happened. It still ticked me off, especially since I couldn't think of a thing to say other than a very mild "We handle him every day, he's actually a lap dog, but he's a bit wound up right now so this probably isn't the best time to do this".

Anyway.

I got there just in time to do stays. Despite the fact it's been a few weeks since Jacks has done a group stay, he held his stays great. I moved out of his line of vision (stood behind somebody), but stayed in the ring.

We moved over to the open ring and he actually did everything except heeling very well! o_O Heeling he was slightly off, and I should have put him back on leash to correct, but I was short on time (because were waiting to use the ring). His drops were perfect as well the jumps. We just did dumbell tosses up to 20". I did go back into the ring later to work on treat toss jumps at 24". Maybe it was my imagination, but he was uber eager to work with his baby brother watching from the crate.

Bertie we just worked on heeling (without using the command) and sits (both regular instant sits while I've walked a few feet, and also scoot sits). And we did scoot fronts (without using the front word) and treat toss comes. I touched on "touch" training to a clip on a stanchion.... <- but that was about it.

The rest was taking him around to say hi to everyone. There was a mix of people I've trained with at both clubs, so they got to see the gremlin.

Everyone thinks he looks very much like Jacks.

I've had my eye on the Port Chester event (the one in March) hoping that it would be a possibility for us but I'm thinking Zoe's not going to be ready. We may try their Run Through in February though and see how it goes.
