Rip's 12 day program has started..

We having joined the many folks who have decided to try training weaves using Susan Garrett's 2x2 method.
I watched the video (most of it anyway) and thought that I could do this with Rip. We had started on Weave-a-matics as some of my previous posts chronicled, but after having been out of town for two weeks and Rip not doing any training during that time, I felt that this would be a good time to start this method.

So... I started on Sunday (1/18) with reward building for the first 2-pole set. I am keeping sessions short as Susan recommends, just a few minutes each. Today (Monday) I did two brief sessions further building value into the two poles set at the 2/8 o'clock position, and working around the "arc" so that he will hopefully have great weave entry skill going forward.
I havent taken any video of our training yet, but plan to going in coming sessions. I think tomorrow I will move the 2 pole set outside (we started in the training building on carpet). If he can continue to hit the entry from most positions, then I will probably be adding the second set of 2 poles.
I will try to update my progress daily or at least after each session.

Very cool. I'm interested in how this turns out. I haven't seen the video yet but at 9 1/2 months old Vega is still too young to do uprights, right? Welcome back, by the way.
