Going to observe my first Rally practice
« on: December 12, 2010, 02:17:59 PM »
So I'm going out this afternoon to watch my first rally practice.  I'm thinking of putting Stori in rally in January, but oh boy, do we need to practice on her not getting distracted.  Super excited to see what I'm in for!

Have fun! I can tell you one thing that helped me immensely - focus on consistent *stationary* attention and proof that before you focus on moving attention.

It was pretty good yesterday.  I left Stori at home since I was only going to watch and I didn't want her getting into trouble. I do foresee a big problem with her doing rally though...She thinks that pylons are the greatest toys ever!!! :smash:

LOL... proofing is your friend! One thing I've also gotten in the habit of using a "pay attention, we're working" cue before I start a training session.  I say "Ready to work?"
