Our initial look at structure and heeling. Levi is in there, but I probably won't do too much with him, we'll see.

Overall, pretty happy with the initial food follows, except I might need to slow down. I feel like I'm almost running to get a trot from Levi.

Happy with nose touch intensity, but I'm also noticing Heidi pushes with her nose and then slides up so it is a chin rest...going to have to address that.

Yay!
I'm looking forward to this!
Should be able to get some initial vids but prob won't be until next week that I really focus on this class.

Our last WTL match is due next Sat. Feb. 10th so we'll be focusing primarily on that over the week. Dex is also attending a freestyle workshop next weekend so will be busy with that.

Also, I'm betting I am going to be tweeking methods for my guys, so hoping ya'll will be able to give feedback on what you're seeing with that.

Atm looks mainly to be adjusting for small dogs and also how we handle static positions.

Dexter competes in Rally FrEe and is learning his first comp freestyle routine. Leggs and Hank will also compete in rally free/freestyle when ready. We need autostands on all halts and sits on verbal only. So while I do need nice sits (and sit/down/stand position changes) in left and right heel, I won't be teaching halt with feet together = sit and halt with feet apart = stand. I need all halts (both feet together and apart) = stand.

I’m going to use this video from the end of December. I made one today but it’s in my basement so it’s hard to see well. She hasn’t improved since December anyway

There's a bit of heel work in this video of Bob training and playing. Lots of other stuff but I'm not that savvy with editing videos. The "nice" and "aus" I pushed and Bob showed some avoidance behavior so I knew I went too far. I'll have to make a new video of just the heel training as this one is probably 3 years old.

I enjoyed all the other videos posted and it made me feel comfortable enough to post one as well.

Sorry about the horrible camera angle (and the slippers ). I've also attached a picture of her structure. She's 18" and 41 lbs at 11 months.

@Bob The Dog - So awesome that your dog will work for snowballs. Sophie hasn't yet experienced snow - the problem with desert living. Thoroughly enjoyed that video, though. Love the 'prance.' Beautiful dog.

I was watching some of Kamal Fernandez's videos at Fenzi Dog Sports Academy and noticed the advice of "work=play=work=play" and this thought definitely works for Bob. Snowballs, a handful of leaves, a tug, a frisbee, a ball etc. it's all the same for Bob because one leads to the other.
@lindzydandsophie Thanks for the nice words about Bob. The "prance" evolved by having Bob target higher during basic heel work and oddly enough, my own higher stepping gait. I marked the moment, created the cue and Bob connected the dots. I think just having a dog's head looking upward while focus is maintained and the lure higher above, the dog is somewhat physically motivated to have a higher stepping gait. I noticed Sophie does this in the video especially from :08 to :13. Never noticed the slippers just your good looking dog aiming to please.

Still have not progressed to the moving HT's. She wants to lick and/or have her mouth open, despite jamming her muzzle into me during regular HT's. She will go nicely from a tuck-sit to a fold-back down to a stand, or any combination thereof, when when targeting her forepaws on an object. We have started working off of the "static pointers" video and are also doing a lot of perchwork. She is pretty good moving counterclockwise, but a bit stiff moving clockwise. We have also been practicing a faster "back up" for general hind end awareness (and is our herding homework, also). How is everyone else faring? I''ll try to get some more videos as feedback is always helpful.
