Wednesday November 15th 2006 - Novice 3, class #3

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

Walter's start line stays were noticeably better today. Could be because I've been working on them outside of class, or maybe just because he was pooped after a long walk this afternoon. In addition to working on them outside of class I'm making a point of going back to reward on random lead-outs in class. We had trouble today with the tunnel in sequences where it was adjacent to the frame or dogwalk. He wasn't trying to take the contact, it's just that he didn't want to go in the tunnel, but he did eventually do it. Oh well. On the bright side, so far in this session Walter has been 100% for his weaves. Today on the 4 non-sequence passes of the 6-pole weaves I "pushed the envelope" by running (slowly) ahead of him as he weaved. Then we did a sequence where he takes the weaves immediately after a tunnel (easy head-on approach) and he got it both times.
