Training Plans Dec 23-29, 2012

Happy Holiday week everyone For Christians I'd like to wish you all a very Merry Christmas from myself, Casey, Faelan, Towhee and Brady. Sorry no pic, but it is very, very hard to get 4 dogs looking in the same direction within a pup pup's attention span LOL

Faelan has officially entered the serious proofing state for his Utility work. At rental last night, we set up scent discrimination heading towards a wall of crates without the ring gates up - this setup was unplanned but Faelan had to be worked through getting the articles - going, working and not heading into his own (open) crate - we simplified after a few working ones and faced another direction and he did great, but it pointed out my need to build up his ability to withstand that type of pressure ; he knew all but one of the dogs lined in the crate.

Other than that:

Casey: Heeling, recalls, fronts & finishes, Drop on Recall (good thing he;s retired LOL)

Faelan: Signals (v nice), moving SFE (v nice), Go-Outs, pivots, recalls, fronts, finishes, drop on recall and of course the articles (about 20 minutes on this one exercise)

Towhee: Heeling, recalls, fronts, finishes, down at my side (straight & fast), Novice level SFE, Group exercises. She did a super job although I need to work on moving her heel position back by an inch or so; although I might just wait on that and see how she does at more matches - if she ramps up at trials she will be forges, if she stays at the same position of drops back very slightly she will be perfect.

Brady: Front & Rear Cross flat work, sits, downs, stands, baby heeling, recalls - Brady is already almost 19 inches tall and so can begin heeling practice IMO, choosing to be in heel position will be the first stages in his training.

We didn't work on retrieves or anything since there are a few dogs getting ready for showing in March, so we started 'run thru' practicing ")

Today will hopefully prove interesting .

One of my online classes will be wrapping up this week for instructor feedback (MaxPup3 with Tracy Sklenar) so I am hoping to get some footage of Brady in for review. My other class, Building Relationship through Play with Denise Fenzi has already finished up and is now entering its audit availability stage where you can see all the lectures, discussions etc but cannot submit videos etc.

Merry Christmas Sharon<:

Wednesday instructor is having open floor training and rings set up on Sunday and Monday next week. I'm vaguely planning on taking both boys out to do a little training.

With Jacks it would be Open work (jumps, etc) - and I'm hoping there will be other people there to do stays with.

With Bertie I'm just going to keep it fun and SHORT.

I was thinking about bringing a crate and seeing how both boys do. Jacks (at home) will not bark when he's in the crate. He goes in and immediately lies down and waits for treats. Bertie on the other hand has discovered his bark when it comes to sitting in the crate and watching me train Jacks.

I have not trained, since it snowed here, so it has been a few weeks. I am looking forward to agility class starting back up after the new year.

I brought Flip training yesterday, but I wasn't feeling well, so by the time I got done training open with him I was done and didn't even do any utility training. I packed up and went home for a two hour nap.

I brought Conner with me too, I worked him first. He was so excited. I entered him in one day of graduate novice next month, so I did a run through of that with him. I forgot what it's like to have a 70 pound dog hurdling towards you in excitement. I couldn't get him to go into his crate, I had to shove him in backward, and he ran out twice before I could get it zipped up. That's my UDX dog for you!

I am actually training my dogs to stay out of the kitchen. I was teaching Filly how to skateboard, but have been crazy busy lately, that I have had very little time for dog stuff. Currently we are painting our livingroom, and dining room.

I didn't get my stick in ground weaves picked up before the weather got cold, and 4 of them ended up getting broken. I am assuming the dogs rammed into them, and busted them. I will be getting a new set of nice weaves in a few months though, so it is not that huge of a deal.

I have a set of 6 straight weaves coming my way as a Christmas gift from my husband!! I am very excited! I will buy myself the other 6 in a few months.

Old man Hank got a turkey neck, and Filly and Rivet got a Tuffy's toy scorpion, though Rivet much prefered the wrapping paper to retrieve, and carry around.

I am finding the forum unworkable right now and so have not really been posting much. Hope everyone is having a great holiday week

Not much training going on with my crew this week

Haven't done much training (other than house manners) this week, but I did enjoy taking the dogs to the dog park by my house Christmas day. I don't normally do dog parks, but there's never any other dogs at this one, so we get it all to ourselves. There's three different fenced off areas, with gates connecting them all together, so I opened up all the inside gates and let the dogs have total run of the place. Flip especially enjoyed the giant mud puddle he found to roll in. My plan was to stay until Flip wore himself out, but by the time my older two were barely able to maintain a trot, Flip was still tearing across the park. It's always fun to see the dogs enjoying themselves
