Saturday was a day for classes with distractions from a Halloween party
Faelan & Brady went to Utility (Brady got glove #3 heading into a huge moving rhino ! He did need encouragement his first try)
Finch had Novice with distractions...the only one which had her attention was a 3 foot tall figure 8 post with fuzzy feet...I think it was a werewolf? The other character never got a glance, big hippo was a non event too.
Sunday we had a rental which I only brought Aedan & Finch to. We worked heeling & recalls mostly with some retrieving. I was throwing toys & balls while working for distractions
One of my rentals is scheduled for after a club party. The rental chair emailed to confirm whether I still wanted to rent since the club will most assuredly smell of meatballs/chicken and other things. Of course I said yes
Aedan's poles are coming along nicely independence is emerging and his sends are nice, even coming at them from a C shaped tunnel.
Now to start lateral distance while I am moving at speed.
His Around cue (180) needs some work when there is a distraction like a jump in his perceived path. And his teeter appears broken...last night's class had the teeter with pressure from a wall about 2 feet away. He was like "don't think so" .. possibly combined with my being on his left side.
He did much very well but we found a few weaker areas what with 10 obstacle courses at speed. He clearly read the backy-up at one section
Faelan & Brady went to a drop in Utility class
Finch went to a drop in Rally class
Sunday i took a drive up to Sunfire Mtn with Faelan and picked Ms Towhee up after visiting
Towhee was tired (she usually takes a few days after seasons to get back to her self) so I replanned my rental
Aedan & Finch were the only 2 to join me at my rental and we worked on a few Rally stations that will help address about & right turn wide issues, some retrieving work, some recalls with started moving drops for Finch. Just generally upbeat ...no jumping although Aedan had some Comnand Discrimination and Signals. Get it Get it Get it come games etc
