The nice thing about starting with channel weaves is as Jen says the dog learns better to focus straight ahead not on the handler. I also trained Kahlua with me at a distance from her - I knew I would need good weave control at distances up to 22' for AAC Gamblers so never got in her face or close to her at the start. I tried using the treat stick (or whatever its called) that Jane Simmons Moake recommended to me at her seminar I took but Kahlua was too fast for me to manage that so gave it up quickly.
I've always had speed from her so the channels allowed her to keep speed and learn to drive ahead.
