Friday June 16th 2006 - practice

(Backfilled in October 2009 due to impending closure of Geocities)

Missed this week's class (class #5) so got in some practice today. Weave-o-matics are now very high up, with both sets end to end for a total of 11 poles. Did it also from calling over a jump, but was not totally consistent in that sometimes he went right around the weaves to the target. However, when he does enter the weaves, he seems to "get it" and keeps weaving right through to the end. On the see-saw he now seems to get the idea of pausing in the middle. I didn't have him on the leash today but simply told him to wait at the middle, and he's pretty comfortable with the tilt (still on low setting). Worked on the tire but this still needs more work since he often cheats it by squeezing through the tire and frame, especially at off angles. Wanted to practice rear cross by calling over jump and sending to tunnel, but by then he had had enough of the heat so we called it quits for the day.
