Kiko gets 3rd leg of Rally Novice

Ok. SO I wish that you could have seen her trial yesterday, as it looked more snazzy, she rocks at finishes and positions (and they work like secondary reinforcers to the heeling), but todays course seemed to be all heeling. AND I screwed up completely! Im surprised the judge didnt deduct points! I got lost right after the serpentine weave in the middle of the course and added in a little 360! (and a swear word!) looking for the next sign, I was distracted as I almost lost Kikos attention to some enticing odor! I've got to say, how HARD it is not to trip doing this! As with a chihuahua, if you look up for 1 second, the loose leash goes under their front feet. I really struggle to practice with her on leash, as it is so much fun off leash, so I am very glad her next trial will be off lead! :) We will both be much happier! I was very proud of my little Keeks showing off how the clicker training method WORKS! Not only that but gives you the advantage, as every one she competed against had working dogs on choke chains that looked so sad/stressed/or like a zombie. I have never used any forms of positive punishment intimidation, or reprimands on purpose training my dogs (besides the fact that she dislikes the leash hitting her in the face! etc). :)
