So my last post was about our "wins" from our previous trial (over 2 weeks ago now!) Here are a few opportunities from my point of view, and then my husband's.
- Run. Be Confident. Trust Your Dog. In so many videos I am standing, waiting, jogging, or worrying about the dog's performance. I have to trust that my dog knows his or her job. And if they don't, then I have to go back to train more. But, this has to be the biggest difference in how I run in training and how I run in a trial.
- Timing and Clarity of Cues. I really need to work on my timing. I tend to give directions too late, and then make up for it by giving them too early. I think the more we work on this, the better we will get.
- Stay Positive and Have Fun!
