Weaving -- Day Three!

I actually came into the office to edit video tonight because Secret did such a good job that I didn't want to wait to share it!!

From the video info:

Day three was a big one for Secret! She's really coming along nicely and we made a lot of progress today. I closed the spacing to @ 4' and we're at @ 1/7 rotation now. Woot, woot! Super job, girlie. I am super impressed with some of the entries she is giving me. She struggled with the off-side entries at the beginning, but she's really starting to get them now, even at very steep angles. Half the time you can't even tell just how much I'm asking for since I'm never on camera, but I'm impressed with her, so that's good enough. :o)

I wish we could get in a practice session in the morning, but she slides around on the grass enough when it's dry, I don't want to chance it when the grass is wet. Hoping to get a couple of sessions in tomorrow.

These three sessions were all recorded in about an hour's time period. I wanted to get all of her training in before I fed dinner.


  1. OMG! She is doing great! I love watching her progress. I have to let you know that you have inspired me to step up the training I do at home with Riley(I've really be slacking). Although I think the method I'm/my class uses is called "channel" method?. I'm pretty new to the agility world if you can't tell LOL. Keep up the good work and I look forward to future videos :)

  2. Thanks so much for the comment! I'm glad you are enjoying the videos. I always feel bad when I'm bringing along a young one because I think I give the older dogs the shaft. :o) I'm so focused on the weaves right now that I haven't done a darn thing with my boys! One of these days....
