Weaves!

Recommended Posts

I finally got Lyka weaving... Her speed and my timing with the toy need some work, but I'm really pleased with this in only four days, as this is my first time training weaves.

Congrats! I find weaves exciting to teach also. Maybe because there is nothing "natural" about it. :)

Lily is now weaving, she is so enthusiastic she knocks the poles out of alignment when she goes through. I'll have to anchor them for her.

I love teaching weavies. It's my second favourite thing (after dogwalks - can't wait to get started on Bar's running dogwalk).

 

Bar learned using Mary Ellen Barry's 2x2 method. It didn't take very long to get the hang of it. This video is from his first training session after taking a month or so off. My bases are broken and not staked, which I should rectify as he is starting to get faster, and I don't want him to think he can plough his skinny shoulders through the poles. :)

I've stopped training weaves at home for a while because it was going so well and I don't want to break my youngster by doing too much.

 

I was all set to try 2x2 but he didn't get it, tried channels and he wasn't too enthusiastic. Tried old fashioned in line weaves and we were off.

 

Very pleased last night at training where he got his weaves at speed and in a sequence for the first time.
