Did some proofing 12 weaves with Odin today, I'm working on him staying in the weave poles. Threw in some front and rear crosses, put his ball beside the poles etc. He handled it all without a problem


This is the first time there has been a jump in front of the weave poles for Havoc. He has got the concept of weaving down pretty good, just needs to collect when entering. (I find it pretty funny how much faster/more coordinated he looks when he is on my right)


Thanks for looking! Constructive critisism and new ideas are always welcome

Some very nice videos. I started doing round the clock but only got to like "5 o'clock" before Bentley destroyed my weaves XP Now were stuck with just the little bit of weave practice we get once a week at our class until I find some steal weaves I can afford.

Anyway I dont have any videos of Bentley weaving but heres a video of my friend's BC doing some great weave proofing.

Great video! That's exactly what I am working towards. I especially like the idea of sitting while my dog weaves

Great job with the videos, love to have more people participating and showing off all their hard work..

I know for me I can have amazing weaves at home and class but when my girls get excited, even my 7 yr old, at a trial, they can miss an entry or pull out early. They know it's wrong but just can't seem to keep it together if they think I'm racing them (and winning) or think they know where we are going and want to get there faster by skipping out.

For me, I need to be a bit behind to kind of 'send' my dogs into the poles. If I'm ahead there's a chance they will race and not nail the entry. Since I ALWAYS can catch up to them and even get ahead no matter how fast they are weaving, I've just learned that if I can ease up just a bit to let them go ahead and enter, then I can catch up.

The same with me peeling away towards the end of the poles. At home and in class we can be amazing, but if they are more cranked at a trial, or distracted at a trial, and I pull away then they may come with me. So I usually 'pretend' there is a 13 pole cause that keeps MY mind into staying straight and to the end. Both my dogs tend to get too handler focused and the teeniest hint that I'm moving off can twitch them out and it's too late to fix.

Not sure if that helps anyone or not.

It goes back to the old "if your scratching your head thinking my dog NEVER does that! Then you are probably at a trial

I try super hard to keep my criteria at a trial the same as I have in training. My last dog I always had to be a bit behind her in a trial and send her in or she never hit the entry. It drove me nuts! But I could always get ahead of her. To be honest I do normally have a hard time getting ahead of Odin when he is weaving, if we start together I can't get ahead for a front cross while keeping half an eye on him. I am entering Odin in open weavers at our next trial (which is a crap load of weave poles and tunnels) We will see how all this proofing works out for us.
