Gave Penny a week off from training, plus she got into some butter so class was skipped too.
One session yesterday I played around with the idea of proper slingshot start that lets me get more lateral distance rather than the drop-n-go style I use now. After that I worked on her "go" verbal to send her ahead of me, paired it with a signal and sent her to a target with food.
Today I proofed weave distractions. First I tried with a human ten feet away from the weaves, though she wasn't bothered, so I set up chicken pieces on upturned frisbees, which distracted her a lot more. I could move the discs pretty close to the weaves after a couple repetitions and she ignored them.
