I borrowed a contact trainer for a week or two and pulled out the 22" metal weave poles I'd got at the CDTC awards party, and set them and a couple of jumps up in the back yard. Yes, that did take up the entire back yard, and yes I did have to rake many pounds worth of needles up first.
The main reason I got them was to practice with Bo, but since I was there with treats, etc, I practiced with Tip as well. I learned (once again) that Tip picks up behaviors really quickly. You must be careful or you'll teach him wrong and the wrong behavior will stick.
Bo better watch out because Tip could be really good -- if he feels like it.
