Training 3/22/2007

Sit stay: Target 30 seconds with me staring at them. Tango did ok, but started looking around. Dancer laid down after 20 seconds--offering new behavior, not avoiding current one. Did a second attempt at 20 seconds. Tango was fine, Dancer tried to lay down so I went back and "fixed" it. Weird, Dancer the one that doesn't get it?

Conformation Class:
Tango did much better than I expected. We just need to keep going to class. The "back" helps quite a bit because when I back him a step or two, his front feet do better. Gaiting around is gorgeous; up and back needs work. Table needs practice, but wasn't bad. Free stack after gaiting needs better expression. Try rewarding lots after.
