Default YoJo's third track!

Here's a short video of a 25 step track I did with YoJo yesterday. It's his third track. He's starting to get the concept of checking each footstep = reward and forward movement. I shouldn't have blocked/popped him for searching to the left and right (TD told me that afterwords), I need to let him work that out on his own. They only thing I should be blocking is skipping the check of a footstep, and not fighting with him on the line, keeping a loose lead and giving a little pop/blocking him skipping a step.

It's so encouraging watching all the handlers with the "finished product" after I work YoJo. One of our handlers just got three of her dogs titled, CDX, TR 1, and TR 2...all with scores of 98-100, using this method from puppyhood(and then a couple with SchH1 and 2, with the same high scores in tracking from trial last fall and the year before). I just have to remind myself of all the dogs I've seen that have great success with it lol. Before my last dog passed, he was on 150 step tracks, serpentines, and way less bait on the track...I really enjoy tracking, I know a lot don't like it.

Didn't get videos of tug work, will try to remember that. It'll be fun looking back on this video when Yo's older. :-D


And of course some fun pics.

Thanks, yeah it's cool to watch him sniff things out. We keep the cat food in the laundry room, and he walked by the door the first time and started air scenting to the laundry room...he does it all the time.

I made the rookie mistake of playing tug with treats in my pocket. In the middle of tug he stops and hits on my pocket and the treats. My TD yelled, "Dani, do you have hot dogs in your pockets!?" lol, he got me in trouble!!!

Pup is growing like a weed! Looking good! I hide my dogs tug under leaves and play tug when he finds it at end of track! Later on I start giving him scent from someone else; and play tug when he finds them! You are doing great! I know you know what you are doing! Just saying one of the ways I train. Looking good! Bill

Thanks Bill! One of the dogs at our club that has very low food drive tracks for toys. 50 Paces, ball, 50 paces, ball. My TD prefers food because it's easier to get them checking every footstep right from the get go, but she def utilizes ball/tug drive if she can't get them to track for the bait. In IPO that "every footstep being checked" is important. It's meticulous and I know a lot hate it for that reason, but I think it's a fun challenge. :-D

I think it was low 30's during training. It was 24 degrees when I went running in the evening, it got super cold, so we actually hit the higher temps, thank goodness. One of our training days we have a horse arena we use, which is cold, but not as bad as out on the field.

However, I can't complain to anyone I know about temperatures, all my family and friends in Michigan are dealing with feet of snow and -15 degree windchill...so I'm the "wimpy friend" in the northwest if I mention how cold I am. Hahaha
