@Barb: I didn't know that you have another agility trial next weekend. Looks like you will have a few times to work on that first JWW jump

The weather down here is getting cold! Not ready for winter yet. Riot and I are moving onto walking fetch. He is coming along really well. I haven't gotten may refusals lately, but he does occasionally drop the dumbbell. I pinch him for this. After I pinch once, he is REALLY motivated to get the dumbbell the rest of the session. So FF will continue to be an everyday thing this week.

Not sure about Sunday. I'm thinking some heeling work, followed by a little bit of 3 handed casting.
Monday: Off
Tuesday: Marks with my hubby because we both have the whole day free.
Wednesday: casting, heeling, start working harder with stays
Thursday: marks
Friday: probably off
Saturday: casting, heeling, hand thrown marks with a diversion thrown during the return

I've also started to incorporate a little drill that my friend taught me. I leave Riot in a sit and then walk and drop three or four bumpers at different distances from him, spread apart in the yard. Then I have to get him to pick them up from closest to farthest from us. I have found that it's a really good exercise for ME, because I have to work on figuring out if/when he is looking at the right one and send him at the right time. We usually do one or two of these each day as well.

yep, more trials next weekend, then that's it until January.
I had planned to keep him kind of quiet this week so he'd be well rested for the trials next weekend, but having seen how driven he was yesterday, I'm thinking that plan isn't necessarily a good one!
One thing that Dan said we're going to do this week is fetch/no fetch using a mixture of birds (probably live) and bumpers. Should prove interesting to see how good his obedience is!

Sunday-
Doo: Three handed casting, go-outs, begin directed jumping
Breeze: Two sided heeling, recalls off stays, ladder drill, agility drills
Tag: Heeling, stays, keep your gall darn nose off the ground

Monday- about the same, perhaps head to the school
Tuesday-evaluate our progress and go from there
Wednesday-off
Thursday-meet with our obedience group at the training hall (I don't have to work)
Friday-meet with our obedience group at the training hall (I don't have to work) plus agility lesson with Breeze.

We are going to have to make this week and the first part of next really memorable as I'm going in for surgery next week. Unless I can get DH to work the dogs, which he has no idea how to do, they will get nothing for a long time.

Be sure to let us know what day the surgery is so we can keep you in our thoughts and prayers.
You will be sooo much happier once this is done

Hey Laura, I'm thinking you'd better spend the next few days in intensive training before your surgery.
Be sure each dog learns a few new commands.
Like...
REMOTE CONTROL
CELL PHONE
SLIPPERS
etc.
Then you can work on their retrieving while you're recovering!!
Dooley.....fetch the remote

Today we had our group training and afterward I got to run Scout on her PB as it was at my friend's house. The cover is really high and tough--but good for the dogs to negotiate. She had a case of happy running today on the marks. Not sure what to do about it but hopefully I will be able to find time to go meet with this pro my friends are training with and like. It would be nice to get the occasional lesson, but he doesn't do lessons on weekends and is at least an hour drive away too...

Her PB were really good though. I am very pleased with them. This was our second time running them. The cover was so high and all there is to mark the blinds is a little pink ribbon which was very difficult for myself to see. I don't think it is going to take much before we are running the blinds full distance. I was 3/4 of the way today and it was our second go at it.

I'll have to do that, though will be careful which dog I send for it. Tag sometimes confuses fetch with chew

This afternoon will be some field work. Probably some simple marks, my training partners will not be able to make it. There will be a lot of modified training because our mentor will be going for surgery tomorrow.

Tonight is obedience class.

Tuesday is a private with our obedience trainer.

The rest of the week will be a mix of yard training with singles and doubles in the field.
