We gave it a good try and he blew it on the last jump!
If you watch the video, please turn down your volume! His barking is bad! Sure glad we didn't get booted out of the ring for it.
This barking has always been a problem. He can be fairly quiet in training and run throughs, but it resurfaces in the ring every time.
I don't know if it's his excitement or he's reacting to my anxiousness and nerves. Maybe it's just a part of who he is. He knows "quiet". I can do things to cause barking, like getting him excited for a toy and he will quiet immediately for that. I make him quietly wait to go outside, quiet to be fed, etc. but have had no luck in the ring.
If anyone has any ideas, please share!
