Hanging In There!!
Another interesting session again tonight. Played with Renegade tonight at liberty and he did well at maintaining gait, direction, and watching where he was going while traveling to the left, even jumping the barrel obstacle each time. Did two laps to the left. To the right was another story. He had some trouble maintaining gait and the first couple of times around he cut the barrel rather than jump it. The next two times he stopped at the barrel and I rewarded that because he was at the barrel. The next two times he actually jumped the barrel and I rewarded that too. By the end of our session he was much better and more connected to me; I just hung in there until I got improvement and it payed off!!
