"Sennen" Weaving Oct 2011.

..and here's the video!

Taking it on the road!

Sennen is learning to weave using the 2 x 2 method, I should have listened to what Susan G says on her DVD, don't start them until a year old, I didn't and started her at 11 months and within 3 weeks she was weaving a full set of 12 (new width weaves) but I had been very bad AGAIN and not taking them into different environments and my garden is fenced in with no distractions except the old "Puff" joining in on the session...
Anyway after she was weaving a full set I went back to 6 and took them on the road, went to Mums last week and Mum took some pictures (She's clever my Mum) this was Sennen's first attempt at weaving this set of 6 in a new place and the first photo (yes she got them)
So then we "upped" the anti and added Mum's dogs, here's Lilly, Sennen did great and only missed one entry over the 6 mins of totally training time including tugging....
and lovely Polly who would have been great at agility, if only I had lived closer to Mum, Polly's running flat out past the weaves as she wants to beat Sennen to her toy!
PS. I did swop sides and I did do some cross behinds but nothing fancy!
and my final distraction area, was this week in the crazy Rabbit field along side the A30, this was so hard for Sennen as this is where she can really open up on a short field walk and where all the bunnies live and...and....
I did the first rep straight out the van and back towards the van, so not looking out into the field, she did it but was really wanting to get going, but I managed to turn her attention on to tugging and having fun with me and the couple of mins rep into the field she was fab, she is trying to one foot them too........

Going, going GONE!

Aren't we lucky to have a neighbour with a digger?

So just some, wheels and tyres, oh and some axles to sell now, nice digger neighbour popped 10 tonnes of top soil over the fence too, just right for the veggy garden and this area which tends to get waterlogged in the winter, so we are trying to raise it! the soak aways from the house are under there somewhere, which had to be redone when we first moved in....
