Things to Train

Oh boy, I have not been training as much as I should… as much as I want to. I’ve been too busy trialing and then being too tired to do much of anything. Flyball was great last weekend. I have this coming weekend off… well, if you can consider a flyball demo, agility and obedience training off. Ugh. Then the next weekend it’s off to Pocatello for Agility.

It’ll be fun, I’m determined to start Qing with Chase in AKC more. So hopefully we will.

I did work with Jet some tonight. I have him on a halter and a leash, and am throwing popcorn for him. I really want him to learn to catch! None of my dogs catch, not even Chase. Well Chase can get by, but he’s not all that great at it. So I took Levi and Jet in the basement and if Jet didn’t catch the popcorn, Levi got to eat it. Jet wasn’t too happy about that! But he caught like 6 in a row I was so proud! He’s really starting to pluck them out of the air despite my awful throws. Levi was happy to get popcorn, too. 🙂

Then I took Jet upstairs and worked Leave It a little bit. Had a boring treat in my hand, and dried livers on the counter. If he left the boring treat, he got a liver. He was getting the hang of that pretty fast too.

I need to work with Chase more in obedience, and Tatum more in agility. It’ll come. I just am looking forward to November, when I just may have the whole month off competition (cross fingers!).

  1. Hello guys! Read your blog for ages now and just wanted to say…

    Do you think Chase has flattie in him? My dog, Dermott, look ALOT like him, and we think he has flattie, setter, collie, maybe sighthound in him, but although Chase is obviously predominantly border collie, the flattie would explain the mostly black colouring. Dermott is mostly black with a little white chest, chin and paw. Although we think Dermott is predomantly flattie.

    Talk to you soon, Ella and Dermott.

    P.S We do agility, obedience, hopefully flyball and Splash and Dash too!!! x

    1. Hi Ella… Chase could have some Flat Coat in him. Don’t tell the AKC, he’s ILPd as a border collie. LOL. But I also think he looks a lot like a flat coat. 😉 And I’ve been told he herds like a retreiver!

  2. Yes there are always things I want to work on with Ace but it’s so hard to find the time. I don’t know how you do it with multiple dogs. I want to get him out in more environments and practice off leash obedience and reinforce stay and come in all situations.
