Cricket and her Pretty Pink Ball, it was fun for awhile...

Cricket and her pink ball...just because she is so cute. I am having troule with the videos playing on the web site now, so I put the links in case they wont play from here. All of a sudden I am feeling so computer challenged-nothing feels like it is working, ;-)

WEAVE CHALLENGE UPDATE:
Anyone can jump in anytime if they want to work on their weaves, and this is a training challenge only so there should be no pressure to hurry or rush through anything, it is designed to help us see any holes in our training and give us a chance to have really independant weaves, ;-).

Pam and Twix got right to work and here is a link to their video for week 1-she even added in some distraction with her squeeker ball:

Ricky and his mom got right to work and did FANTASTIC here is a link to their blog where you can see their video:

Nat and her dogs will be joining us and Selina and her dogs-so it should be fun.

I started a week earlier so we just did the second jump position=the jump is a little to the right of the first jump. I was pretty suprised because the last test we had no problem with the recall through the weaves, but we did today. I left that in our video. We had to work through that so I will stay at this level a few more tries until I feel like we are really solid.

Awesome week 2!!! Cricket is going to have the best weaves ever! Week 1 was not tough but it's going to get more and more challenging as we move that jump! But it will be fun!

Thanks for letting us play. Hey, if you get a chance and see anything that you think we're missing in the details of this challenge, please point them out to me. Cause when I re-read the instructions I realized that I'd done several things wrong. LOL
