Directly after work tonight, I spent a few minutes working weaves - their reward tonight was that tub Mac N Cheese you can buy at the store :wave: They are faster with better lighting, but you train when you can right? I am also training them to stay in the poles regardless of my body movement.

They look great! Towhee especially has great weave motion.
What would you charge to come train Tito??? This poor dog is ignored almost all the time these days....

Grins - that's probably because she's petite :) She still likes me close though - we need to work on that.

Tito ignored? Okay, I have to say I doubt that LOL

Great videos! They all look great. I agree Towhee has some great weaving motion! I am sure she will learn distance with time. Make sure you reward ahead of the weaves as well.

I learned 2x2 in my last class, and it was fun for my dogs! All this weave talk, I am getting so excited to get my new weaves this summer!! ecspecially since Rivet broke one of my stick in the ground last year, making me only have 11 now:(

yeah but we're both probably considered a little weird. I also enjoy endless drilling of fronts. So do my dogs.

And I'm STILL singing about weaving! Maybe I'll at least change it to heeling.

Sharon, they all look great! Casey is such a champ, it's hard to believe he is a senior.

Thanks :) Yes, I sometimes use a sippy cup or tug toy out in front - Ms Towhee will really drop her head and plow through when her sippy is out there LOL

Thanks !!

I ran into a neighbor while hiking a few days ago, and his golden girl is around Casey's age...she has real problems at times navigating and is lighter in coat so does not show silver so much. My neighbor had not seen Casey for awhile and commented on how silver he looked for a younger dog and I kind of laughed and reminded him that Casey and Seka were the same age :)

I adore Casey's tail !! I just trimmed over 4 inches off of it on Sunday, I love it so much I let it get too long LOL

He uses it all the time either as a rudder or as a happy tail wagging boyo :)
