David Winners Really nice work Baillif.

Would you mind going through a quick and dirty steps on how you train this?

This is what makes sense to me:
Position through leash pressure and then marking for correct position which includes the dog not looking at you.

Colie CVT He looked like a pretty happy boy to me working like that. I am not a huge fan of IPO myself. Just not that patient to get things so choreographed and strict. It feels more a handler test than dog test. I wish I lived closer to French Ring, Mondio or PSA clubs. I am not a huge fan of the precision heel. The lean would be handy lol.

The pink frisbee just proves the manliness of you two after all. I love watching videos of other people working their dogs. I thought he looked pretty happy to be out there and definitely happy about that frisbee.

Baillif My mentor in the sport travels even further than that just to train certain portions of the exercises we don't have the means to train for here. Takes a certain kind of crazy.

Oh bummer just looked it up... Only two in Nevada and both on the other side of the state about 7 hours from here.

Wow I would love to see it in person. Is there a club in Northern Nevada or somewhere out here to watch it?

Well you make it look easy and fun, but I'm sure its not easy at all. I had to go google what Mondioring was and found this on the Leerburg site...

Baillif The decoying in French ring is where the sport really shines IMO. If I wasn't set on mondio French ring would be next on the list. There are so few people in this state doing either though.
