I am feeling like that Wyatt and I are making progress on our Elite Chances distance work. On Saturday, we ran without faults but went over time. I had to restart him twice when he stopped before going into a tunnel and also after a switch from some hoops to a dog walk. I must have stopped suddenly, which causes Wyatt to stop. I got him to go out from a standstill but it took a lot of time. I really need to remember to keep moving at all time, even if I need to use tiny steps. On Sunday, on a much harder course, we got most of it and it felt really good (no stops) but he came in a little and missed a hoop in a outer sequence and also got sucked into an off course tunnel. But we really felt like a distance team. I was more relaxed Sunday on the harder course. I tense up on the easier courses I guess because they seem more doable to me. We also have some great tunnelers runs and a regular Q. Weavers on Sunday was also very nice including a great set of 12 from a huge distance to end the run.
I need to get more clear between my out and go ahead commands. I tend to overuse out when I mean go ahead. But I need to throw in an out if he starts coming in. But usually go ahead should be the default choice. That could have fixed the missing hoop problem Sunday.
