Starting a few Jumps with Finn
Photo series: Wait and Jump
Really, I was just keeping up with a few short minutes most days. At this stage Finn still hadn't started formal classes, but I thought that a little bit of work in advance of the class would help us cope, because obviously I'll not be able to run along side him like everyone else.
I didn't keep repeating the same stuff all the time either. For example although he mastered the tunnel as quite a small puppy, it was put away for sometime while working on other little things. "Wait" however I kept reinforcing and practicing in new environments.

Now some Channel Weaves for Finn
A Note on Weaves: I thought I'd teach him using the channel weave method. He learned very quickly to run down the channel. However, I have currently had to stop, because our weave poles are only stuck into the ground, and trying to bring them into a straighter line has resulted in him ploughing through them. So although we made this excellent start, I am now only working his weaves on the club training set that cannot be sent flying!!!
