Today I brought my PVC jump in the house. It fits in the hallway exactly with no room on either side. Noelle fetched her dumbbell over the jump twice. That's all I asked for and she got it exactly right. We also played stay while I wiggled the dumbbell. I got a whole lot of flinching, but I can train her not to flinch by not letting her get it if she flinches. Flinching stops the game and the dumbbell goes away. Her retrieves were about a foot and a half today. Sit/stay-->dumbbell is wiggling on the floor-->watch without flinching-->I remove my hand-->get it!

A whole lot of progress today. I was doing a happy dance when she jumped over, got the dumbbell, jumped back over and sat in front. That was a huge leap forward in her understanding.

As always... Onward!

Oh, and the jump folds so I can put it away when I'm not using it. We also did drop on recall to a target mat. Then drop on recall to a small target. And finally drop on recall to a piece of tape on the floor. Noelle loved that. So did I. I'll bring all my targets to my dog training clubs. And we'll bring my targets to drop-in training at other clubs, too. Eventually, Noelle will generalize drop on recall and I won't need a target.

Turns out negative punishment (P-) is very effective with Noelle. If you jump, I will put the dumbbell away and I will leave. If you do not jump, I will play with you. I only had to do that about five times and she stopped the jumping.

To maintain a stay while I throw the dumbbell, holding on to Noelle's fuzzy topknot worked extremely well. She learned that if she doesn't want her hair pulled, she should maintain a stay. Not that I ever pulled her hair, or actually would. If she tried running, I would let go instantly. But, Noelle didn't know that, so she never ran. I also started out with a strong hold on her topknot, and then gradually loosened until I'm not touching her noggin at all. But Noelle doesn't know that, either!

I still have the challenge that Noelle doesn't like to jump when she is holding a dumbbell in her mouth. I made the jump lower and that helped her get the idea. Her rally jump height is 12 and her obedience jump is 16. 16 seemed a little daunting to my little munchkin. She'll get there. We just need to practice. A lot.

Yesterday, I tied together the spin cue and the sit cue. Noelle did a rocket fast whirl and sit. Well, I'll name that behavior Twirl. I have yet to introduce the go out for Utility, but at least we've got the whirl and sit behavior started. One piece at a time, we'll assemble this puzzle.

Like always, onward!

Yes, there is no reason not to use all four quadrants to your advantage as long as you are fair about it. If we never tell learners (canine, human or other species) what is wrong they will have a harder time understanding what is right in the behaviors they do.


As an FYI virtually everyone I've ever see work on directed jumping does is to teach go out first (without turn and sit) then add the turn and sit. Once you are putting go out, turn and sit, and the jumping together you are limited as to the number of orders you can give. Go out should be just the order to go, no name (i.e. "fly away" then as he arrives at the go out spot "JAVVYS SIT" gets him to turn and sit, then signal and order to the correct jump). I think you may be introducing an extra command by teaching turn and sit as twirl if it is not your plan to use that with her name later on (Noelle twirl). Using the dog's name when they are arriving at the go out cues them that they will be told the next thing to do (sit). I am not sure I am being clear on this, but food for thought. Hopefully it makes sense.

Yes, it does make sense. I will be yelling, "Noelle, twirl!" because twirl means rotate yourself and sit. Plus, Noelle really, really enjoys twirl as a fun trick. I want her to look forward to the sit part of the exercise. At my last trial, I saw a lot of dogs do a fast go out, sniff the ring gate for a snack, and then wander a bit. I want to avoid that.

The dogs who hoover around looking for crumbs likely were taught to go find the cookie at the go out and not just to find go out.

That is exactly what I want to avoid! I want to make sure Noelle is fluent and not just guessing what I want.
