Clicker training the weaves as a shaping exercise is really helping that stress. I think she just did not know what to do (my fault) and training suddenly was not fun. And I think she needs more rewards in long sequences than Summer does. Mia's just a lot more sensitive that way but I am glad I'm starting to put two and two together. I am also noticing the clicker is really helping to motivate her and she gets more excited for it. I think she is thinking of it more as a game now and a game she knows how to play. Beanie I had an awful week last week training and felt like I sucked at it and my dog was too stressy. I took a week of no training and then was able to come yesterday with a new attitude and new game plan. I don't think my dogs are trial ready but.... We'll see. In just doing gamblers with Mia and not worrying about how we do just that we have fun. I'm pretty sure that Summer will provably go crazy running around the ring but hopefully it'll be fun. I just realize with Summer I don't have the luxury of time to really perfect things if I want to trial. As long as we have fun... That's our goal. I see people around here trialling at all sorts of levels and dogs that don't get off the start line or run out the ring or go crazy doing all sorts or stuff in the ring or shut down or poop in the rig. Etc etc etc. so I wouldn't worry about being fabulous if it were me.
