Rally This Weekend and Mixing It Up

Wyatt and I are entered in rally excellent Friday and Saturday at the Big E in West Springfield, Massachusetts. I have been enjoying really learning all the advanced and excellent stations. I have found some of the stations will really help our traditional obedience especially a left finish and back to help adjust Wyatt into heel position and generally increase his awareness of heel position. It is also fun to mix up so many different little "doodles". I have been really trying to keep him guessing. It is so easy to fall into the trap of doing the same thing all the time and then we wonder why they are bored or anticipate a command.
