IPO has consumed my life!

I find myself at work thinking about left turns, sits in motion and good full grips! Hahah I think I have a problem!

I've spent the last 10 months or so training my dog Anna (or her training me) in this sport, and though we aren't as flashy as some other dogs I see, I am extremely happy with our progress and how we look!! Just wanted to share

~ANNA~ - YouTube


This is a video of all of my hard work! Countless hours, hahah frustration, problem solving, accomplishment and all of the above

I'm still on my first dog, and the addiction hasn't waned. It is consuming....and if the dog has an issue where training is put on hold, watch out.
Now I know why others have a couple of dogs to work, though I can't add to my pack for quite some time.

It looks like you and your dog are enjoying yourselves, But, why would you ever call a dog out of a sit?

During an IPO routine when is a dog ever called from a sit? Never. So it is not something that you need. What problems can you create by calling the dog from a sit? Many. And in the sit you obviously don't have as much pressure on the dog as in a down (where you do call the dog) to maintain the position.
So why create problems in an exercise when there is no reason to create those problems? It doesn't make sense.

In other unstable positions, like the stand, there is typically pressure in the training to make and maintain the position but the dog is (usually) not called from that position in training to release that pressure so the pressure is maintained.

....lol because I wanted her to come to me? I'd like my dog to have a recall from every position, even me standing behind her with her back to me so that she can't see me, she is my pet/companion first and foremost, she does not live in a box all day, nor did I even buy her for IPO, I do different things to keep her engaged and keep her thinking, it's my choice

If you did that(recall from the sit or stand) training with my TD, you'd get yelled at, lol....recalls aren't done from certain positions for a reason. Holding position is much more important than recalling to front when it comes to the positions. Recall is of course very important too. So is Platz, but that word is only used in trial 2x's during certain exercises....DQ'd in any other context.
