Rally Lessons

Couple of reflections from last weekend.

I used to think of Wyatt as being inconsistent and perhaps that is more true for agility. However, our scores and more importantly his performance was very consistent in 6 rally runs in 3 days last weekend. Scores were something like: 92, 95, 97, 94, 95, 86. I was consistent in his pre-run rituals except for the last run (which had a lower score). I'll share what is working for us in terms of pre-run ritual at a future date.

I was having trouble getting a straight down in the halt-stand-down exercise. I realized I could bend over and point to the ground straight in front of him and get good position. Not as impressive as putting my hand in air but saves a point.
