Danni's down in motion

In case anyone was interested... I convinced the boyfriend to film me today. I did a few before and she was coming in crooked on her recalls so I moved the ball to under my chin a few times and she straightened up. Of course not in the video I got, but you know how it goes.

Anyway, we're pretty much BH ready. I have a few things to work on. We were going to enter in June but I've had some things come up that take priority, unfortunately. So the end of the year it is.

Enjoy.

Beautiful!! Very nice!

And you know that with the new IPO rules, the down is NOT in motion? You stop, the dog does an auto-sit, then you give a down command and walk away.

But the down in motion for the IPO obedience routine is still a down in motion at least.

I know, but that way is boring, lol. Can you do it either way or are you required to stop?

She looks great! And as far as I know, you can do it both ways. I just find it strange to teach your dog to do it with a pause when you're just going to have to teach it without the pause for any higher titles anyways.

Thanks! I thought you could do it both ways too, and I feel the same way you do. Might as well do the hard one if I'm going to have to train it anyway! And really, it's not that hard anyways.

Beautiful work!

The other rule I remember reading (which I think is new) is that the dog's topline must remain as level as possible during the heeling.

Her heel is beautiful but she does hop a lot, so just something to be aware of. Not sure how much it would contribute to a pass/fail with the BH, but I think a judge could easily dock points in the higher level OB.

Nice job, beautiful dog too!

Thanks! She does hop a lot and I do need to work on keeping her down. She hadn't been worked in two days (bad me) so she was pretty amped. Since she was coming in crooked, I decided to work on that first. We're almost BH ready, but I need to shape up her heeling, like you said, fix her recalls, and get her a little better with the groups.

Thanks again everyone!
