On December 14, 2013 Hope finally gets that elusive 4th Masters Jumpers Q to complete her Agility Trial Champion of Canada Title as well as her Bronze Award of Merit.
Hope was in heat at the time when Regionals were held so she had to run in the pre-qualifier rounds at Nationals
On April 14th, Hope got her advanced Standard title and is now moving up to Masters Standard. She's almost 23 months old and I'm so excited about her progress!
At just 15 months old, Hope got to run in Novice Speedstakes at the UKI Canadian Open championships. She couldn't have done any better!
Weave pole training from beginning to weaving 12 poles with my young border collie, Hope, using Susan Garrett's 2 x 2 method. I videotaped every session that had a new set-up. In-between there were more practices until she was ready to move on. I have not edited out some of the 'failures' that occured and how we worked through them.
Hope is almost 14 months old now and I've been teaching her to weave using the 2x2 method. Here's a short clip of today's session (#33) showing off her 6 straight poles. Each session lasted between 2-4 minutes only.
