CHARGING THE CLICKER
USING CLICKER TO MARK A BEHAVIOR
MESA AGILITY VIDEOS
We are going to an agility trial this weekend. One of our most very favorite things to do (other than chase cows and visit with our baby chics). Here are some previous agility runs we have had. We qualified in all of them but you will notice that sometimes I need to use my “lay down” and “watch me” to get us back on course after missing an obstacle or something. It’s all about team building which certainly doesn’t happen over night.
MESA’S FIRST FREESTYLE VIDEO
One of the judges commented on my tights: “The hot pink tights are a distraction away from your dog”. They liked my choice of music but Mesa was also “slightly distracted from something on the other side of the fence”. Mesa could tell you that something was a stick we were playing with when we warmed up. We didn’t title but we had a darn good time.
BORDER COLLIE BARREL RACING
I get asked about digging puppies. Most of the time they are digging when and where they are not invited to dig. Because digging is of a dog’s nature, I suggest having a “dig” spot in your yard where they can dig and be successful. I also put a cue to it. This video shows Mesa digging on cue.
