40 F today, so I made sure we did some outside heeling in the parking lot of the park today. Negative temps are coming for the next several days. There's always a lot to look at over there, so I had to work to keep her attention a few times, but otherwise it went well. Other than that, I threw in a variety of stays throughout the day. Her stays are rock solid right now, but I don't intend to take it for granted. It will be a daily exercise for quite some time.

I make sure to vary how quickly I ask the dog to finish after a front. Sometimes I'll give the finish command immediatey, and other times I'll wait several seconds. My dog knows it's probably coming, but has learned he has to wait for the command.

If I had a dog anticipating finishes, I would also get him to make the mistake so I could tell him he's wrong. Do several rapid fire front-finish, front-finish, front-finish, and then do a front and wait several seconds to see if he'll finish on his own. If so, say nope, side step to block him, and reset at front.

I have 2 rentals today

The first is at my agility center so I will be working on some larger sequences in addition to full length Go-outs and Directed Retrieve.

The second rental is longer and usually shared so we get to work on training for distractions and helping each other out. I will also be filming for class submission a variety of 'tricks'. Obedience, rally and agility.

With Faelan we are working with some intense jumping activity, that is he is inches from the jump and is expected to take the jump, lower his head while sticking his landing within inches of and parallel to the bar - intense but he is really doing well - I however need to rest my forehead against the stanchion to use feel to tell if any part of him, including his tail, has touched the jump anywhere <sigh>

The instructor actually did do a couple of "don't Call your Dog"s for me before a "Call your Dog" to help work through the problem.

I'm taking Casper on a hike this morning. Wish me luck. He thinks a trail is some sort of high speed, limited access route to the top of a mountain. We are working on trying to get him to slow down and pay attention to the scenery.
