NEWS!!!

As a group we chose a name and team colors. We are going to call ourselves No Nonscents! Jolene came up with the name and we all thought it was super cute. We also chose Red/Black as our team colors with Red being the main colors.

I have the box ordered, and jumps are being made. I also have everyone's dumbbell sizes so I can order those aswell.

We're almost set!

Huge Improvements all around!!! We were able to get a lot done today and everyone did an awesome job.

What we did:

fetching on the flat as a warm up
scent discrimination- the dogs all did really well with this and were actually making the correct choice all on their own. We built up from having a different looking dummy (plastic or bigger) to having two similar looking dummies side by side!!
Recalls over 4 jumps- we are getting lots of speed and confidence now.
Sending up the line to food bowl on box and back down. We pushed for tighter passing, and got some really nice tight turns on the box.
