Truth is, I didn't get a ton out of the course. I jumped in gung-ho building all the equipment (even sending my plans to Susan) but I started to lose interested with the constant self promotion, crate games, and recaller references. I still love her, but my dog doesn't have the drive to train like she wants- at least not at nearly 7 years old. Also, the course was designed for stopped contacts, with the "super secret, ultra unique, crazy awesome" running contact stuff she did with Swagger available for an added cost. But I found the running contact material to be oddly disorganized, incomplete, and hard to follow. Not three adjectives I'd ever think I'd apply to SG material. I ended up looking elsewhere for contact help. I'm currently training the Rachel Sanders box for a running a-frame, and I haven't touched dogwalk training yet. Pimg isn't crazy fast over the dogwalk (I wouldn't even call her "just fast"), she's more of a moderate pace kind of girl in that respect. So managing the DW contact has been both easy and successful so far. I think that I do want to train a real running dog walk, but it falls way below running a-frame training.
