Question Dog Agility Obedience?

Today was my dogs first agility trial, and we did horrible! Our problem is that she can jump and weave just fine, but only with a treat. Otherwise, she runs away and wont come back. She is older, 6 years old, but I wanted to start competing for fun, and she is really fast and a good jumper.She is aso very smart... sometimes too smart The other dogs were awaiting their owners command every second, where as mine would be breaking her neck by pulling on the leash,and even jumped out of the ring!Does anyone have any tips on teaching better obedience? She doesnt ever use toys, and I dont want her training to become dependent on treats

Sorry your first trial was such a bad experience for you. But, know that similar things have happened to the most experienced teams.

Have you taken agility classes? If so, your instructor should be able to help you work on delaying reinforcement. If you haven't, this thread has some good info on working with food: https://www.dogforum.com/training-beh...ing-food-1219/

Also, if you're not taking classes, I'd recommend either finding a good instructor or enrolling in online classes like the ones offered through Fenzi Dog Sports Academy - there are several classes that will give you a solid training foundation for competition.
