One thing is abundantly clear after doing the drills suggested by Steve at AgilityNerd -- I really need more work with this stuff. lol No surprise, though, as I have always been pretty awful at threadles.
Secret was a good girl and tried hard to do what I asked. As such her speed wasn't up where I would prefer it to be, but she was being careful and was game to do what I directed her to. She's an honest dog that way and makes it very obvious when I screw up!
I didn't include it in the video, but at the end I did some straight line stuff through the middle with him to get the speed back up and he zipped right through like a happy little Klee Kai. I'm really crossing my fingers that he'll be more comfortable at 12" at our trial in a couple of weeks.
I didn't intend to immediately bombard everyone with posts and videos upon getting a computer at home. lol No worries, as tomorrow I should probably mow, then I'm at the shelter Thursday night, Friday, Saturday & Sunday. Poor dogs. This weekend will be their first real test with the potty yard, as my parents are out of town and my cousin is unable to let them out. There is rain in the forecast; I hope they are wrong. The dog door is ordered, but for now all I can do is prop the door open!
