Training Logs Feb 3-9, 2013

Set out two leather articles one scented one not along with five metal unscented and Nugget brought the scented one to me five out of five trys . This was the first time both metal and leather were out on mat together . Nothing like the sweet SMELL OF SUCCESS. Excuse the pun but I'm very pleased with his work. My other three Goldens that got their UD all took quite a bit longer to get this exercise and Nugget isn't even 10 months old yet.

Question....

What happens if a dog, in a trial, breaks a stay and jumps all over YOUR dog, causing him to break. Is your dog also DQ'd? I was wondering, because there is a lab in our class that has done that twice. Amazingly, the dogs being jumped on did not break either time. I would imagine this has happened in trials.

Keep in mind that DQ'd means the dog is barred from AKC events, which would only happen if the offending dog attacked the other dog. In your description, most judges would excuse the first dog and give the second dog a redo.

Bragged a little too soon , Nugget was sent with three leather and five metal this morning 1 leather being the right one and he was toooo interested in the reward and was wrong on the first two attempts bring wrong articles back. One step forward and a couple backward.

A year or so ago, I saw this happen at a Novice A trial. A lab got up, went over to and behind the next dog and sniffed around his rear. The dog held the stay for a bit but then finally broke and moved toward it's owner. The lab was excused and the other dog was given a chance to redo it's stays with the Novice B group.

I see...NQ is the correct terminology. I just read through the rules.

Took both guys to class today - early so I could get stuff done with Jacks while we had the whole building to ourselves.

Trained go-outs and since we are learning directed jumping now, I pulled the two jumps out on either side of the go-out path.

Initially we just worked on go-outs with me going in to reward him. I put cheeze wiz on the target (a monster binder clip I found) to really help him be successful and keep his attention ONLY on the target.

He did these good so I started moving up to halfway and doing the hand signal toy toss. We need to work on our bar jump. Bar means take the bar jump, not look at the bar jump and run for the high jump.

Bertie's instructor came in around this time with her dog, and that threw Jacks off a bit. He suddenly forgot that go-out means go for that loaded target. He thought it meant go jump that high jump (obsessed with high jumps, much?!).

I thought whatever and moved almost all the way up to the gate/target and got a couple successful sends done and cleaned up.

Jacks was barking in the crate - which I won't allow in class - so I took him out to the car to hang out for the next hour and a half. He will shush on command, but I am sometimes on the other side of the building. Attention hog he is.

Bertie was AWESOME.

And I absolutely love everything our instructor is teaching as far as initial steps for stays. It's WORKING. I LOVE IT!!!!! We did sit stays and down stays mainly. Keeping in mind that all these dogs are at the same level as far as just learning the stays and building on it, she is really working on getting us to build rock solid stays right now with the moving forwards, dropping the leash and picking it up, moving sideways, moving back, taking 5 steps forward, doing "bungie stays" where you are going out and then stepping right back to heel position, and so forth.

Maybe not that exciting, but if you know how long and trying a time it took getting Jacks to the same point in his training. Yep. AWESOME.

We also did moving downs - like you would for rally. Bertie and I got to demo this for the class. I had to ask my instructor about his downs in this case. Bertie has an instant hip roll. Which is awesome for stays, but I suspect it's not a good idea for moving downs in rally as well as the DOR in open. o_O I'm wondering if I should discourage any downs but the spynx down except for when we are doing stays.

We did other random pet type things as well... we worked "leave its". This was technically the first time I've done this with him. He knows "leave it" but that's just whatever - absolutely no setup situations. I started out with the treat on the floor about a foot away from him. He sat there and either looked at it or even better looked away on a loose leash, and he got his treat. And I bumped up the level. At the end, I put him in a down and put a treat closer and closer and then on his foot. And he was so good that he was turning his head to look away from the treat.

I'm still really excited about finding a way to teach the directed jumps that WORKS for Jacks.

This morning on our walk.....heeling in a parking lot to practice for graduation next week. It went fine, but it could be better. Distractions are more of an issue outside.

Later, we did a training session in the house. We will do more heeling outside this evening. We're supposed to get a bunch of rain, ice, and snow tomorrow, so our opportunities to train outside are going to be limited this week.

I'm going back to carrying hot dog chunks in my mouth, because I don't want her to know whether if I'm carrying treats during the graduation testing. This worked very well for the beginner class graduation. Treats are not allowed.

Oh - and something I forgot to say but that gave me a laugh on the way home. I had to stop at my vet to get weights on the dogs (Bertie 41, Jacks 78) and pick up glycoflex for both guys. There's a big sports lake by the vet and driving past today, they apparently are doing a chilly dip thing. LOL.

There were EMT and ambulances on hand just in case, but all of these people were going out on the ice and either ice skating or hanging out (I could smell barbecue) or jumping right in the water in a prepared area. CRAZY.

We just wrapped up our final training session for the day. We did the graduation exercises in order in the parking lot. It was less than ideal, because there was no shortage of distractions.

Heeling pattern: Forward, halt, forward, left turn, slow, normal, about turn, right turn, fast, normal, about turn, halt. This went fairly well considering there was a couple with a yippy little Poodle on a flexi leash wandering around not far away.

Figure 8: The couple with the Poodle decided it would be fun to stop and watch us. This was not going to work for us, so I just stopped and waited for them to leave. I didn't say anything, but after about a minute, they got the hint. It's one thing to be in class and have a bunch of dogs around, but ONE dog 30 feet away in the park does not work right now. Once the Poodle left, we completed the exercise. The figure 8 is our most challenging exercise, so I fully expect us to lose points here on Thursday. The others likely will too from what I've seen. I just have to make her think I might have treats in my mouth, or in my pocket.

Stand for exam: This went well. I had to do the exam part.

Recall (on long lead): I did two of them. On the first, her finish was very crooked. The second one was better.

1 minute sit stay: Good

3 minute down stay: Good
