Carmy IPO Obedience 8/20/14

I'm visiting family in NY so I brought Carmy to visit the club we used to belong to. She hasn't worked on this field since she was a puppy, so I was really happy with her (collarless) performance overall. Trial season is coming up very soon!


Baby Boaz got to come and do some puppy races as well

Yay! I've been away and haven't seen Carmy in a while

After you throw the dumbbell and step behind the dog, what is the rationale for that?

She would hover when I threw the dumbbell, but if she was corrected for it, I lose the speed. So I tell her sit and throw it and step back for her to be able to realize that sit means sit wherever she is, and don't have to add more conflict to the basic position if she is corrected after I step away. kinda seems to be working for her at least lol

Nice work! How old is she? You going for the 1 this fall, or you trying for 1, 2, 3? :-)

Thanks! She's just about 20 months now. Aiming for the 3, but we'll take it as it comes. I'm lucky that we have a lot of trials in my region in the fall.

Yeah, that's awesome! Good luck when the time comes!!!
