Oreo's mom Posted July 29, 2005 Report Share Posted July 29, 2005 Hi. Just an update from a very old post of mine (re: Oreo peeing on agility equipment). Oreo and my daughter have competed in 3 agility trials so far. Two UKC and one NADAC. Thankfully, Oreo has done NO peeing on the agility equipment at the trials. Apparently he is either too busy or realizes it's not his to pee on. Our major problems with him are keeping his focus so that he finishes all the obstacles and to keep his focus on my daughter and not me. It seems that no matter where I stand when they're competing at some point he has to run over and check on me. I don't talk to him or look at him and actually turn my back on him when he does this. If I'm not in the spot where I was previously, he runs around looking for me - once he even went out of the arena and into the bleachers. My daughter has become very determined that they WILL finish the course, though, so by sheer will power she pulls him back to focus on her. Several people at the trials mentioned that members of their family can't even come to the trials because the dogs are too distracted. Has anyone else experienced that? That said, I've decided we will have to work through this because I'm not going to stay home or go hide. Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
