Toni Dawkins Training day

Oops! Forgot the camera :(

Had a gr8 afternoon at Sue's guided by Toni Dawkins. She really made us think about how to handle courses different ways. I have also adopted a similar style to Toni for sending Chi over jumps in front of me and 'Q'ing him to turn left & right before he jumps. Don't know who originally thought of this method but i know Nancy Hudson gave me gr8 insight into it on a 1:1 training session at the end of the season.

Sorry no pics or vid. but i must say i can highly recommend Toni's training sessions, they are both positive & rewarding for dog & handler!
