At Sharon Nelson's Distance workshop last month, I realized I never practiced turning my dogs sharply away from me after the weave poles (with me at a distance). I decided it would be fun to fill this training hole. I have Versa-Weaves which allow me to leave the poles open by about an inch in order to do more reps than I would with straight poles. I also only used 6 vs. 12 poles because the focus was on exits and not weaving.
Both dogs did very well responding to my PUSHING their line. I also loved seeing how far Jake is willing to drive ahead of me now. His confidence is so much higher now than even a month ago and I am asking for a lot more distance. I think he is diggin' the distance as much as Lil!
