|Well, when I saw my agility instructor take Gus around a course 2 weeks ago, they were pretty awesome together so I don't have to wonder . . .
Which made her point about calling the next obstacle earlier--I'm always a touch behind, but also the point that so much of training is not on the dog--the skills we want come naturally to the dog-- but on learning how to get where "we" humans need to be--- to communicate what we want when.
Humans are woefully slow learners compared to animals in many ways . . .
However, none of that bothers me a lick---sure the best so and so trainer at this or that could have her herding sheep or starring in Hollywood movies---but she's stuck with my learning curve and being my first dog as an adult.
I take solace in the fact that my human ideas of accomplishment mean nothing to her---however we play the game, we're playing it together--that's all she cares about.
