I took Diva to agility class tonight and she did really great we had this speed track jumpers course. Long lines of jumps then into tunnels then weaves after all that speed was built up. Diva nailed everything perfect. I barely felt like I was telling her where to go even though there were a couple 180 turns and a 90 degree rear cross after 3 straight line jumps. It was great because only just last year Diva would have never been able to hold her line like that especially with me trailing 2 jumps behind. It would have been a spin waiting to happen. So as we were leaving I was thinking about the discussion on tugging. I had Diva's braided leash just like one of her braided tug toys so I took it off and I ask her to tug while I was standing about 10 feet from the weaves and a tunnel. She did it and while it wasn't the best effort it was nice. So then I took out a piece of food and asked her to tug, nope didn't happen. Asked again, nothing and then finally got her to take the tug but she really didn't engage with me. Food had her focus. Put the tug away and fed her a few pieces of food and then with the food in my hand almost right above her head I asked her to weave. I thought as I did it that maybe I was asking too much I mean I was sort of pointed towards the weaves and the food was too close to her face that she was going to ignore me. Nope, she took off like a shot and raced though the 6 poles and back to me. I mean she literally pulled her face away from the food to go weave. She either knew I wasn't going to give her the food if she didn't weave or the weaving was high value. Regardless tugging is not as high value as weaving for Diva as it was not able to draw her away from the food like the weave command did. Then just for fun I asked her to weave(left hand) to the far end of the tunnel, picked her up out of the near end on my right and sent her to the far end of the 6 weaves(180 right entry) and back to my left hand. Perfect. Diva was quite proud of herself too. I love that dog, now if she could get a handler as good as she is.
