This is a page to share with you all what we are going through right now; what we are learning, and what we are struggling through, in hopes that we can inspire some of you to research new ways to work through the issues in your own lives.  

Lets try this another way...

Ok, so I started her back on the board last Sunday, but she started jumping again on tuesday and wednesday. I decided that the difference between running her on the ground (which I did before running her on the board each time) was just too different from running on the board. The board was a good 4" off the ground, so I decided to stop practicing until I could get what I wanted to run her on. So I got a 1/2 in plywood board. I am now teaching her to put her feet on the last portion of the board, and when she does, I click and throw a treat. But I am SHAPING it, which means that I try to give her as little help as possible, and let her figure it out. I want her REALLY THINKING, as opposed to being in that play mind, where her mind is all over the place. Since she has been trained to put her feet on all kinds of stuff, this should not be too hard for her to figure out.

We put the decking on the dog walk this is looking so good! We just have to put the slats on and paint it, and it will be ready to go!
