She won't stay down! This is a new thing too!
We're training for our CD title, and we have trials in 2 wks. Everything has been great up until now. My gal has always been a little distracted by what's going on when she's in the ring (we go to sanction/fun matches), but her heeling is still great despite that (she improving/maturing). Her stays have ALWAYS been her best exercise (even when she was 5 mths old!), I would put her in a stay and she would not move. Everyone in class was always so impressed because she would never move. It was very nice!
But lately... within the last 2-3 wks she has been breaking her downs. Not in the sense that she sits up; she stays down, but the does "creepies" (or "Navy Seal" crawls) toward me, very slowly.This has come out of nowhere. I have tried revisiting our first stages of the stay(from a few seconds besides her until where we are now) and she does fine. The weirdest part is that these "creepies" are very random; she never does them when we work at home, and does them every second or so class/fun match.
I'm not sure what is causing her to do this, or how to stop it. Any advice is more than welcome! I'm nervous because we have trials in 2 wks too!
