Wow, was the last post on this thread really a year ago? Guess it's time to bump it up, and find out where everyone is.

I've done some work. I took a stay class and a retrieve class from FDSA with Ilka and Leo. I also took Precision Heeling, and this last session, took Relationship Building Through Play (fantastic class!). I (of course) got sick, and then had to deal with a lot of issues with my son transitioning to middle school, and fell behind. And now,I have Lily to work with as well. If it ever quits freaking raining, we'll start doing more work.

I'm going to be taking Heeling Games in the upcoming FDSA session, and either a rally class of tracking class, as well.

When your dog isn't paying a lick of attention to you.... there might be a reason.....

ill update as to where we are :)

as i mentioned in the training wishlist thread - i am taking time off from showing to really put into effect a lot of bridget carlsen's methods - I've been training with her for a few months now and it's making ALL the difference - especially for cherry who would pull the "I'm soft and sweet and sensitive do not correct me i can't POSSIBLY do what you want" thing way too often - and now she's working happily and we are COMMUNICATING which is the best part.

both cherry and chill are preparing for utility - cherry showed a few times and came OH SO CLOSE a few times, but no cigar. chill just got his CDX a few months ago and we are preparing to go to the akc obedience classic this december in orlando - should be fun! I'm toying with taking cherry to the rally nationals...

cherry at our last trial:

chill's performance at the same trial - JOFT! was working i believe a 197 here, then 3 off for no finish :(

https://youtu.be/TW1PpR8qoAM

cherry at a match working on articles - we have since put her back on the mat to work on even faster returns and better pivots without mistakes - she is ROCKING this !!!

same match working go outs

I've done my usual "hey, let's get sick, and take a couple of months to start feeling better" routine, and then it was summer (too freaking hot and humid) so I haven't done a whole lot.

I've done some nosework training with them, and trick dog and parkour titles, but no real obedience work.

thank you :)
I am nervous all the tests, obedience when it was in their own rehearsal hall was easier to experiment with what happens ..

ours BH and ipo 1 obedience is just awful to watch ..
dog reacts by searching for prestressing worth all the time.
bh went successfully through the IPO1 but the score is not sufficient to result .. I would not let myself be myself through it: D
BH

ipo1 51points
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=YWezJS3YVxk

the judge said that breathe in between, the more the dog reacts to my prestressing of the more went wrong.
Now winter work is in progress and looking at next summer if we do IPO1 results

So, I'm taking a class from FDSA this session that involves shaping. Not really my strong point, but I'm trying. This is the "highlight reel" of Ilka's session this morning. I'm trying to get her to put her hind feet on the lid to a popcorn tin (hey, it was handy) without luring her onto it, when something unexpected happens...

There is a new (as in, formed this year) online titling organization for obedience, called the Non Competitive Obedience Association. Non Competitive Obedience Association They just awarded their first title last week. I sent Ilka's submission off yesterday. I'm not exactly holding my breath, but hey, you never know....

Heeling is NOT our strong point....

We also did our first attempt at a CRO level 2 course this week. It was harder than it looked. I did get one run edited and saved. I'm not super happy with it, but it was the best of the lot, so... I'll probably go ahead and submit it next month.

I think we have made something of a breakthrough with scent articles. I've done a few sessions of putting treats in the "hot" tin, but today, there is no food, just my scent.

She's even sitting there, facing the gate, and can clearly see and hear the kids playing in a bounce house across the street, and not reacting to them.

Interesting news from the AKC today. Obedience News and Updates - American Kennel Club

July 5, 2017
The AKC convened a task force of five judges, exhibitors and trainers to explore changes that could maximize safety, while still testing the important aspect of the "stay" skill.
Mindful of the concerns and suggestions sent to the AKC from all sectors of the sport, the Task Force members spent three days exploring and formulating changes.

In today's culture of diverse dog training methods and philosophies that variously impact the behavior of dogs coming to trials, the AKC recognizes exhibitor concerns for stronger safety measures to protect all dogs from interference of any kind in the ring during competition. At the same time, there is also a strong consensus in the sport that the impulse control and obedience demonstrated in group stays must be preserved.

The committee’s work resulted in the following recommendations:

The creation of new individual exercises for Novice and Open that will test a stay with distance between dog and handler.

That one group exercise be retained in Novice that will test both sit and down stays in the presence of other dogs, with spacing and leash use to ensure safety, and a formation option that will allow up to ten dogs in the ring.

That open out-of-sight stays be replaced by an individual exercise also testing sit and down skills, and a command discrimination exercise that will demonstrate steadiness and obedience at a distance with skills performed in place. For Open A dogs the exercise creates a stepping stone toward Utility. For the Open B dogs, a randomized order of skills is designed to challenge experienced teams at least as much as the group exercises do now.

The recommended changes will streamline scheduling for judges, reduce conflicts for exhibitors showing multiple dogs, and maintain a level of challenge appropriate to the class. With more confidence in their dogs’ safety in the ring, we hope that concerned owners will re-engage in AKC obedience and feel inspired to pursue their goals.

More details will be published when descriptions have been fine-tuned by AKC. It is anticipated this will occur around the beginning of September.

Holy mackerel is right...I thought I had a pretty good idea about the changes they had been discussing but some of these changes are much more complex than anything I had anticipated.

I need to take a dog and a printed out description of some of the changes and see if my more skilled dog can do this new stuff. Toad could but because of his partial cruciate tear I don't do any jumping with him and not much heeling--it isn't terribly comfortable for him to sit.

Geeze!

Need some advise from you Pro trainers : ))

I enrolled Mr. B in a group obedience class - to help him be at more ease around other dogs - We have a female Dobie and he gets along fine with her - but it's the --- " Other " dogs that barks at him first - then not a good thing - Since going to the classes - he's doing great - he really is - the trainer asked why I was even there - He is doing great - then the last class - we got a curve ball - There will be a obedience test at the last class - Pass - and we get a cert. ! Here's one thing we may have trouble on - he has to sit - or lay for 2 minutes - with distractions - He will sit all day long If I ask - yet - hes a Doberman ! He's always watching - working - at the end of the meeting - The trainer - sort of tested us - Mr. Business was laying - watching - he had been in this position for ? maybe 5 minutes - then she walked over to the door - opened it and walked out - all the time watching over her shoulder - well that got Mr. B's attention and he stood up - The trainer laughed and said - that's his job to pay attention -

So yesterday - I upped the training - took him to town with me - Stopped at the bank = busy place on Friday - I had him sit - he was watching the door - then people starts coming in - he was really watching - but sat ! They asked me if I had been waited on - I said no - but go ahead - we are training - He made it for maybe 4 minutes ! So - my Doberman friends - am I training in the right direction ? Taking to places for distractions ? I think this kind of training for a Doberman is tuff - it go's against - there rules - lol

Thanks for in advise

...Ken
