Settled in for the night after training. We had a good session. Winx worked on some heeling and I worked on teaching her to back up. We did some command discrimination. She thinks it’s so fun and jumps up whenever she can! I ran Pilot through and Open and Utility run. He did well. The biggest thing in practice is his arc on go outs. I thinks he’s starting to figure it out though. Instead of the running straight towards his arc, he ran past the jumps, them arced. I keep being told that I need to break him of it, but he’s weird. His arc doesn’t get worse at a trial, it disappears! I obviously don’t want him to ever do it, and we work on it but I don’t correct him much. I just basically say let’s try again.
If you put guides at the go outs it would probably help him go straight and not arc. Maybe yoy are already doing this....i just haven't read through all thebothe comments.
