My favorite parts of the video are the left 360 turn (Bosley is really keeping his butt in) and the Schutzhund turn.
It seems as if my "treat in the crate" reward system is starting to backfire on me. I was using this to keep Bosley motivated during his runs and to know that he would get his treats when he was done working rather than while he was working. Well, during our first run through last night, which was not taped, Bosley would not concentrate on what we were doing. He kept looking at his crate and was trying to get back to his crate and eat his cookies. Now that we are in Advanced Rally and it is all off-leash, this is not a good thing. All I need in the middle of a trial is for Bosley to go sprinting back to his crate to eat his goodies. I guess it is back to the drawing board to work on a reliable reward system for him. He is just so food crazy (see previous "cake eating" post), that he will do anything to get his food, even if that means blowing me off and running out of the ring. I am really wondering now how we will get past the food bowl distraction that are a part of every Advanced Rally trial. Maybe we will be competing in Advanced Rally for a very long time.
