Echo Continues In Agility
Echo has had her fourth class lesson and is definately improving in her enthusiam and time between rewards. When we first started the class I had to reward every two or three obstacles. In addition I used the fuzzy lunge line as a drag toy to motivate her-awkward to carry and run but whatever motivates her. The last half of the class I switched to bait bag with food which now seems to work as well. Currently she seems to love contacts more than jumping. We are training 2 on/2 off and still have a ways to go.
Although we are still are having troubles with the weavepoles-right handed used to be impossible without hoops, now they are just hard. Her rhythm is picking up in them as well although we still have alot of speed to develop.
