Specman, thanks for your concern about Lily. She seems fine this morning. Sometimes when she slips she acts like she hurt herself worse than she did. As soon as something really interesting to do she will all of a sudden be fine. I think she can be a drama queen sometimes, but i like to err on the side of caution since i wouldn't want to risk a minor thing becoming something really serious. We will be going out soon for our private. I will have the teacher check that she looks ok before we work. If not i will pull her tomorrow and rest her since we have akc trials next week.

I hope Lily is feeling better. I would much rather have the drama queen dog that is careful when they get hurt than the kind of dog that ignores it and just soldiers on.Good luck with the trial.

Thanks for your good wishes all of you. She can be quite an actress I think. My private teacher thought she looked good this morning, but we lowered the jumps to 20" (which is her CPE height anyway) rather than her usual 24" AKC height. We didn't do any contacts, but instead focused on weaves. Mine are buried in snow right now so we haven't done any at home and I thought her weaves in class on Thursday night were terrible. We did weaves until her head hurt (mine too)! Onside, offside, 180 to weave entrance, front and rear crosses both to get in and out.... We will use our CPE entries tomorrow to practice contact criteria before our AKC trials next week.

I was just practicing weaves in the basement. I am using Sarah Garrett's 2x2 method but I am doing it a lot slower than she did. I am using her video which is great. We are up to 6 poles. I have not been training as often as I should what with taxes and my mom being sick but he still seems to remember. It was a good choice not to work on contacts in case Lily is still a little tender.

SpecmanThanks for the giggle!!! It really makes you wonder what they are thinking... a fur coat of all things LOL! Sigh... tables... everyone of them seem a bit different - Gem loves the metal based one at our private trainers but our PVC one at home and at group class seem very suspicious. I have very easy plans to build one at home that is very inexpensive if you'd like them just let me know.

Catherine - I really really hope Lily is okay. Good to hear that she seemed okay we'll be thinking of you and sending best wishes for a safe, pain free, "Q" tomorrow!!!

CT Girl - It is great to read about your weave success with the 2x2 method. I am considering this method depending on how our channel weave training goes. BTW - I received the Crate Games DVD last night (haven't watched it yet) but have started reading Shaping Success and so far I'm having a hard time putting it down - not so much as a training book but just a really encouraging story - about a 1/3 of the way through so far.

Oh what a difference a week can make - we had group class this morning and it was like night and day from last week. Gem did very well!!! No running off or hiding all all - sequences were nice including offered A-frames, nice tunnels and jumps. We played the bang game on the teeter and finished up with very nice offered dog walks!! Best of all no luring this was directed or offered work.

We worked on blind and front crosses and Gem did very well - her handler on the other hand... LOL. I was told that I'm making a rookie handling mistake seen often with small dogs - leaning over during runs and directing with my hand rather than standing up straight and using my shoulders or body position. I was told that once I stood up that she was running faster and smoother in the sequences.

I can't thank everyone on this thread enough for all the encouragement, ideas, and simply sharing of the ups and downs that are experienced. Please know that is truly appreciated!!!

Minnie, I have to work on not bending over too. I tend to do this when Swizzle is on the fulcrum of the teeter. I am nervous that he will jump off and get spooked. He is doing the whole low teeter by himself and the bang does not seem to bother him too much so I am happy with his progress. I am in Florida now but will have to check the webinar out, thank you!
