|Good advice from Bailey and Bosley.
I very much agree, don’t stop and try to fix training or handling issues in the ring, keep moving. It’s hard, I know, I’m guilty of doing it too on occasion.
Try going to some fun matches instead, which is an excellent way to proof behaviors and build confidence in a trial-like setting.
I had to move my hand back and forth which I usually don't have to do.
How did you train the weaves? I ask because I usually associate the above with luring the dog through with treats- which I have to admit is my least favorite method of training weaves. I don’t think it fosters a good understanding of weaving, most dogs you see trained by that method have a slow, inconsistent, and very handler dependent performance that tends to fall apart easily. In that case, I would seriously consider going back and retraining the weaves.
