My reinforcing babble? Haha. I say Atta Girl a lot I realized, but I just called her Aayla I'm pretty sure. (Eye-la)
I know you've done work on wrapping, have you figured out how to get speed and tightness in your wraps? I get one or the other, she also gets very frustrated with it if I don't reward her for sloppy wraps and quits on me and starts trying other behaviors. I mostly don't work with the pole up on the upright but just wanted to see what she would do that time. Clearly not ready for it. She is a great tugger! She has a good amount of tug drive which is great.
I'm really excited about her speed, it's something I've struggled to maintain. Especially with her approach as you see. She is not driving to it, and prefers to trot into the poles, then build up speed. Which has been slightly helpful because before she was blowing her entrances because of too much speed. I'd like a happy medium ha! Soon as we can get a consistent run through with straight entrances I'll start working around the clock again. Can't say I'm enjoying training weaves as much as the other aspects. Yet I'd be a happy to train Forbes anything and see that adorable face.
I did a little bit of everything. Mainly channel though. I did a little bit of 2x2 and weave-a-magic for getting out entries.
Thanks everyone though. It's been a struggle for me to learn how to train and troubleshoot the weaves so I'm so happy it's starting to come together. We have about a 60-70% successful weaves right now for up to 8 poles. I've only been able to work it once a week though. I can't wait until daylight savings and we get more evening sunlight.
