Dogwalk Regression

I mentioned in my last update that we've seen a regression in Bentley's dogwalk performance.  Here's one of our latest attempts, showing his launches at the end.

It's frustrating, but I think towards the end of our training we pushed him too far.  We've now decided we're going to go back and lower the dogwalk a little bit, and allow him to be successful.

We probably won't get to it until at least September.  Not only are we busy, but it's still so hot here.  It's not fair to expect him to work too hard when it's that uncomfortable outside.

We're entering a trial in September (our first away trial!), and won't be entering Standard at that time.
