Getting sick of these yet? lol. We entered one day of a trial this weekend, this is our third week in a row of comepting! I had tons of fun yesterday though, Odin was having a lot of fun and running really well for me, except for his naughty dog moments:)

www.youtube.com/watch?v=tV9KiXMzhUc&feature=youtu.be

We had a really nice gamblers run and are now moving up to Masters which is kinda scary. Our standard run he knocked the first bar, you dont see on the video but he broke his stay as soon as I moved away from him and when I put him back I didn't put him in an ideal spot. He popped the weave poles too which I realize was because I moved, but his job is to weave no matter what I'm doing so we need to work on more proofing (I leave you weave!) And there was his naughty contact:) His steeplechase run was awesome and he managed to get in under course time even with 10 seconds worth of faults for the knocked bars! His course time was up there with the fastest border collies and kelpies!:) And you can't see it in the video but I was brave and did a beautiful blind cross on the landing side of the jump after the yellow tunnel near the end (very proud of myself for not being a chicken lol.) The jumpers run was pretty self explanatory.... I'm going to try handling jumpers very differently the next trial we have.

All in all I had a lot of fun yesterday, Odin is a VERY fun dog to run!

Thanks everyone!!! He really is a lot of fun and how can you get mad when he is being so enthusiastic about being naughty? His jumpers run really made me laugh, I don't think you can hear it on the video but I actually was completely stopped, threw up my arms and said "autopilot" while he was doing his own course (tada lol.) Everyone just LOVES him at trials, I am still blown away by the number of people that approach me at trials to compliment me on him. He is quite the star and he knows it!

LOVE watching your videos! (and feel your pain with the knocked bars...).

You are doing so well with marking mistakes like the dogwalk contact so he knows there was an issue cause he wasn't rewarded by tearing on like he wanted. At the same time it's NOT demotivating, just clear that there are rules to the game at trials and classes. Same with the weaves, you just calmly brought him back around to finish them correctly.

Keep showing the videos I love them!

I wanted to go but I had a seminar in saskatoon with Theresa Rector the next week and couldnt afford both ( soooo wish I was rich ) :cry: it's funny tho people at the seminar that were at the trial were telling me about this awesome GSD and said I should have seen him... I said.. "I will" lol thanks for sharing the video's I never get sick of them :D
