Video footage – with huge thanks to Nancy for capturing some of the seminar on tape … you hear how much too much I talk … and double cue touch 🙁 Both these runs were Sunday afternoon – this is Sally as tired as I’ve seen her. (Which was not so tired as to come home and missing playing Kong with Sampson!)
Sally’s aframe made HUGE strides this weekend. I have a clear picture of what I want and a reasonable view of how to get there. I did at least 20 aframe bottoms every day. That’s all it took – 60 reps for me to get into my brain what I wanted it to look like. Still need to work on problem solving (as you’ll see) but I finally feel like there is hope on the aframe.
Webb was great – I totally enjoyed the learning for a couple of different reasons. One is how respectful he is of different handlers and dogs. You don’t ever feel badly running a different or low drive dog. Sally was the highest dog on Saturday by a long shot and I learned a lot from him with her too. Sunday I largely ran both Sally and Brody and that was great – flipping back and forth gave me a good handle on how different they are.
Webb has some good sayings too. Webbisms I think I’ll call them.
Run ‘Em Like You Stole ‘Em
Your Ball has Brains
We Are All Builders
Slow is smooth; smooth is fast (he credits John Woods for this – whoever JW is?)
Don’t Look at the Rock
lots of big concepts too – like defining your primary skills; knowing what you want from the sport .. more on those later I’m thinking 🙂
