Parkour (6/8)

Gimme killed her bed under the computer desk before we headed off to class. She's also become a little more obsessed with babies. It might be time to adjust her remedies. I wasn't sure what to expect for class.

Crawl trainer - I didn't get a video for this. Gimme has done it before and it wasn't set very low, so she just zoomed through it and back. It was great to have something easy to start class with.








Sway bridge video - Gimme isn't really fond of the sway bridge so she tends to race over it. I let her race the first time and then inserted a control point on the way back. She stopped very nicely and you can see her  relaxing as she's getting the treats. 

Hoop trainer video - Gimme has a bit of a challenge with the hoop trainer. We work on it and get some success, but not quite what I'd like to see. It's hard because she gets ahead of me so quickly. In hindsight, I should have used our "halt" as a control point to help her listen better. 

Sequence 1 video - Gimme does a good job with this, though not perfect. She misses the "halt" cue on the sway bridge, but then does the hoop trainer perfectly. She's doing much better than I expected. 

Cue discrimination video - This exercise was about cue discrimination. We had two platforms on the ends with the barrel between them. The discrimination was between "hands", "out" and "table" using the end platforms. Gimme did well with the "hands" and "table", but not with the "out". She was getting ahead of me, so I couldn't use my motion to help her. I tried to use "halt" to slow her down coming out of the barrel, but she wasn't responding to it. Jo thought "halt" and "out" sounded too much alike. They do, but if this was the issue, I would have expected Gimme to do the "out" instead of getting on the end platform. Once I got the "halt" in as a control point, then she did the "out" nicely. 

Sequence 2 video - This was our final sequence and Gimme did a really nice job. I was ready to add a couple of control points, but found we didn't need them.
