I think I would want to practice with that before attempting to use it at a tournament, but it's a cool idea!

Are you giving passes after the heat is over, for the next heat? We give passes...

For a baby puppy??? No! Obviously, puppies aren't children, but a 3 month old GSD puppy is the developmental equivalent of a 3 year old child. Is this the way you'd teach a toddler? Of course not.

When the dog jumps on the pedal it triggers the ball to come out and the dog has to catch it. The NAFA rule (not sure about U-FLI) is that you can use any kind of ball as long as it acts like a ball...

Can we please not turn this into another "positive only" vs corrections thread? That's been done to death already, and has nothing to do with the OP's issue. Let's try to be more productive, shall we?

Some people spend years training their dogs not to chase, so it may just depend on how committed you are to working on it, and how supportive your club is. It's such a common problem in the sport...

She does look really good, it would be a shame if you are never able to get her to the point of racing. I agree with Trish - we do head to head racing with a dog in the other lane before we even...
