So, right now we're doing some very basic work on 'we don't do agility when you're out of your mind, dog' stuff - at home for now, when we get back to practice we'll take it with us and build from there.   Not running any classes with contacts at the next trial so I think that'll help give us some time, since those are the things that requirer the most thinking from her. 

For now, though, we're setting her up at the startline, leading out and - waiting on something beside a fixated stare at the first obstacle. Eye-contact, ear flicks, yawning, ANYTHING that isn't a fixated stare at the course, before release.   So far it's cut down on nonsense by a lot.  It'll be harder to get at a practice and then at a trial and a more busy environment, but I think long term it'll help.
