I'm sorry It really does suck when you have one of those days where you barely recognize the dog you are (trying to) run. You can join my new proofing party. I'm going to get a small jump to keep in my car, and once I do, I'm setting a new goal for myself of finding somewhere new, every single day for 30 days where we will go, set the jump up, do our start line, and get the jump for a big reward. Which will NOT be on me when asking for it, because part of my issue is that when I drop the toy/treats outside the ring and walk in, he knows rewards are gone. I will find places so unbelievably distracting that doing a focused start line at an agility trial is going to be the easiest thing ever. I spent the entire winter watching a training buddy proof weave poles in her Masters dog who couldn't weave in trials. We had dogs barking and doing recalls along the weaves, squeaking toys, people running, banging the walls, shouting...everything. Watching that made me really motivated to start proofing Gusto. It's been a lot of discussion about proofing, dealing with the dog with the weaving issue and some other stuff. The general idea we've come up with is that we wait way too long to start proofing skills, and don't do it hard enough. So I'm going to try and see what we can do in 30 days.
