Grooming > Why do you not shave a husky?

I don't shave most of my pommies, but they do get clipped down to their undercoat every year. And they appear much more comfortable in the heat AFTER I do this.

My groomer HAS made a mistake in the past and shaved them and Kaluha was shaved because clipping him was far more traumatic than shaving, and it never prevented their coats from coming back in beautifully by the fall.

Oh, stand, ick, I hate halt-sit-stand. It was ALWAYS a crapshoot with Asher, I never knew if he was going to do it or not. Moving stands? He rocked. Down or sit stands? Ick.

As a result, the rest of my dogs have a really nice halt=sit=stand and a decent down-stand.

You will be fine. Do the lure 6 times, than use the same hand movement without food and jackpot when she gets it.

And sits and downs will only lose you a point or so if they are crooked (unless they are very crooked). It is hard to see what is straight with a small dog. Do you have a big mirror to practice with or someone who can click position for you?

I am sorry, I DID assume this was for Rally? Am I correct?

Those right finishes are fine for C-WAGS Rally. Cleaning it up comes with time (for example, I am working on getting Demon's finishes on verbal only and getting those hoppy, jumping into place left finishes).

What level do you plan to enter? There are no finishes in Starter, only forwards. And no left pivots (although I LIKE left pivots because I have a dog that backs into heel on a left pivot).

You look great. Don't stress.

I would click when she hits position. Remember, sometimes you do a right forward and sometimes a right finish. In C-Wags, the direction (right or left) can be a separate cue from the sit at the end of a finish. So sit would be additional and probably loosely chained to the finish (as a cue to start walking would be lossley chained to the forward).

Usually they like 360's no bigger than a hoola hoop.

Have you tried using 2 treats for a right finish? One in the right hand to bring her behind your back and the other in the left to lure her into heel position? For small dogs I also tend to show the treat than toss it around behind my back (holding it low) so it ends in back of me on the left, then use a treat in my left to get the dog in heel.

How about when she hits position, you plop down a fistful of food between her front paws and straight up quit. Food between the paws helps her hold the down while eating.

Then start adding duration before the click.

Left or right finishes? They are not too hard to teach. I teach my students using a lure but I personally prefer perchwork.

Wow, congratulations!

Have you tried doing the protocols for relaxation with her?

Yay, Gunther!!!! Glad it helped. But I have to confess, it's not mine. I tend to steal from the best I can find (and don't always make it my own).

I think it is a great game for competition because it builds dogs that drop on a dime.

Ah, but C-WAGS just started Scent Detectives (note to self, I really MUST take the judge's test as I helped write it lol), so you could try that. It is all containers.

And they just started a games class too (and I need to take THAT test also).

I have taught AKC/UKC Rally and am an APDT Rally judge and I think out of those venues, C-WAGS is my favorite, the most challenging and the most fun!
