Nice, nice!!

 

How did you train your running A-Frame? Did you use a specific method?

And Bliss in training, doing ketschker turns (your 'flip' I think):

Yep, clicker/target with a down nose touch having been shaped beforehand: http://uk.youtube.com/watch?v=HIjKgJkqyPI

 

Use that 4-off position for the dogwalk and A-frame, a 4-on for the seesaw.

 

How do you get her not to default down in competition?

I do get her to down sometimes, but most of the time these days I just let her run them. In training she does a mixture as well. She doesn't miss many contacts - since she started competing in January 2006 the total missed is still in single figures. Here's a recent film which includes a decent if somewhat leisurely dogwalk contact, a chaotic A-frame contact resulting from me turning her late, and a missed seesaw :D ... one of that total mentioned above, I blame the handler (me) who was panicking a little. :rolleyes:

Don't laugh too much! :D

OMG, her lie-down at the startline is so .... very .... cute! All you can see is the tip of her head!

 

Very nice dog, she looks like a ton of fun to run.

Thanks for the nice comments, folks! We don't get many clear rounds, but she has such a zest for life, and is always so happy at the end of a run, playing with her tuggy, that I find I just don't care so much these days about the eliminations. :rolleyes:
