Our first activity was jumping in a circular pattern leading to a tunnel. No problem, I thought we like jumps. I failed to take into account these specific jumps all had wings. Yes, I crashed into each and every wing.
I regrouped and settled Marley at the first jump and I lead out a bit. Upon releasing her I noticed she looked at me and took off to her crate. It seems she was totally embarrassed by my klutzy behavior. I suspect she wants a new handler.
I've discovered if I spend some time thinking about what our results should be and I notify my feet and shoulders we do great.
We've started training the weave poles using the 2x2 method. So far we are progressing nicely.
