Rip 2x2 weaves, day 6 and 7

Here is a video of Rip's day 6 progress on 2x2 weaves. I only got one short session in on Friday (day 6). I have moved the two sets of poles to about 4' apart and they are now rotated to about 1 and 7 o'clock. You can see at one point where I try to rear cross him into the poles and he gets confused. Obviously I will need to resolve this, but I think I can work that in as we continue.

Day 7 - I was at an AKC trial with Skye today (that will come in a separate post), so not much time for 2x2 training. I did take Rip out today to reinforce what we had done yesterday, and I tried moving the poles closer together but had only limited success, so I went back to 4'. I have to watch the "keep value to the 1st set of poles" work as he went to the second set a couple times. No video of this today.

Did you make those sets of 2 weave poles? Looks like he's more or less getting it. Are you going to try it with Skye too or are you not supposed to do it with dogs already competing?

Nice job.

Katrina bought those poles quite some time ago. If you follow the video completely, you really need 6 sets of 2, so Katrina wants me to buy another set. They aren't too expensive but I havent bought them yet.
I may try with Skye to firm up his weave entries. He probably would progress faster since he already knows how to weave, he just isnt an expert on finding the hidden entry.
