smileyzookie Posted September 21, 2007 Report Share Posted September 21, 2007 Riven is doing superb at agility! We just finished her 3rd lesson and she's already connecting jumps tunneling and A frame together. The weave is goin a bit slower, but still going. Yesterday we did the dogwalk for the first time. Evidently I was leading her too close with my hand and she fell off. The instructor said she was feeling "pressure" from my hand being to close, basically sort of like I was pushing her without touching her. So he showed me and she walked perfectly in the middle for him. I tried and she's so dang fast and Im so flippin slow by the time my head registers to use my hand and speak everything she's already done with the stinking dogwalk lol. Anyone have issues with it? Second issue is that he wants her to sit when she's done with the A frame. Like as she's going down put her bottom on the frame itself and front feet on the ground. Im having difficulty getting her to do this, since she wants to turn around and go back across. .... see, doing obstacles = hot dogs = wanting to do obstacles over and over. Oh and just an observation, Riven seems to thrive more on learning the new obstacles. She seems to get bored easily, but since I've started connecting obstacles she is doing better. However with the weave she just doesnt want to pay attention and acts like it is the most boring thing in the world to her lol. She can act brain dead but as soon as we go to a new obstacle she's all at attention and wanting to do it...as if challenges are her life mission. I didnt think she'd do the dogwalk, A frame or tunnel and she did them all on the first try!! She's impressed me so much. Next week is the see saw (cant remember technical name for it), and I dont think she'll do that one either lol....hopefully she'll prove me wrong:) Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
