I'm always interested in how dogs learn and think. Nothing shows the differences between dogs' thought processes more than watching my two dogs learn the same behavior. They learn very differently.
For instance, Bentley has been doing agility for 2 years now. He has never loved the table, but usually eventually (read: slooowly) lays down. He has given me trouble with the table once, but like I said, he usually slowly falls into place.
Lexi, on the other hand, gets to the table and throws herself into a down. She is usually in the act of laying down before she even gets on the table.
We went out tonight to practice the dogwalk, but couldn't use it (there was a class running late), so we did some table work. Lexi's table is excellent. You can run to the table and past it, and she will lay down immediately, no problem. Bentley, on the other hand, doesn't get it. He will run to the table, and if you run past, he'll either jump off, or stand there looking confused. His downs are SO slow.
It's just interesting how differently they process the commands.
