Yeah!! glad u joined the crowd bit by the agility bug. My youngster is in beginning classes now and is really starting to get into shaping. Our homework this week is shaping the table behavior, one jump work, targeting to a foot target (for eventual 2o/2o) and "Crate Games" kind of exercises to build restraint/drive off the start line.

I do have challenges when he gets stimulus overload and wants to check all the scents on the ground, etc... I stop and give him a simple task to do (like sit or nose touch) and if I cant get him back he gets to go sit in his crate for a few minutes while I work my older dog. What do other folks do? When he is "on" he is awesome. The good news is he seems to really look forward to class/practice ... so hoping it is just a maturity thing

One of the many nice things about San Diego is that we have several good positive based instructors and lots of big name seminars come here... So lots of learning opps. Am working a Moe Strenfel handling/positioning cues class in Nov with my bc and if I can afford it will audit Greg and Laura Derritt in Nov too. Early Xmas present to self. :) My bc came fm a breeder that clicker trained fm the beginning. Made me chg my whole perspective on shaping.
