Wow... after reading this I feel very lucky! Ollie has loved the seesaw since the word go! Started with getting him to walk on and manually lowering it slowly and high reward at the end, then letting him use his body weight to do it in a walk. After a couple of lessons he was running on full speed!

Cloth tunnels on the other hand are apparently impossible!

Go figure! Ruby has loved the tunnels (open, closed, straight, angled, u shaped) from day 1! But the teeter is gonna take more time and baby steps! Just want her to trust and learn to have fun!

normal open tunnels at any angle are fine... but the fact that he actually has to PUSH his way through is just not happening! If it's lifted up a tiny amount at the end so he can see a little bit of light then it's easy, and he'll also follow another dog through... but doing the work all by himself is just too hard! LOL

We will get there eventually

Be patient with that. It will come. As easy as tunnels seem like they should be from our perspective, they have been vexing to Lily off and on. If she doesn't think about it far enough in advance, she ends up at the tunnel entrance, looking over the top of it and then she doesn't seem to realize she has to duck her head down (only a problem for a standard).
