Training Weaves and Stuff

Soooo we are taking the Silvia Trkman online Foundation class again. I'm not going to post the lessons, because they are (so far) exactly the same as last time. The previous lessons are in the side bar under ST Lessons.
Tibby and I have been training almost every day. The cooler weather or whatever it is has Tibby wound up. As in, I remember sleeping through the night....it was nice. Why is it that when I have a day off and want to sleep in Tibby wants to get up at 2am, 4am, 6am, 8am and PLAY!!! But when I have to go to work early....Tibby won't even get up to go pee. I had to carry her outside this morning. She was all - I'm a sack of rocks, can't stand up.
We have been working on a bunch of things. Weaves, back side of jumps (now Tibby thinks ALL jumps must be taken from the backside), RC.   I tried 2 methods with the weaves - Weave o Matics and the channel.  I guess I like the channel better, but the WOM helped Tibby to understand the idea of weaving better. 

My RC board is stupid. Too thin, bounces too much. Stupid board.

I think Tibby's weaving is great, so just watch that video.

We also just got a Manners Minder. Now what do I do with it? I did some weave pole training with it, but Tibby was faster with the ball.

Great job Tibby! Have you looked into the 2 x 2 weave pole method? A lot of people at our training club are switching over to that method.

Yeah, the weave poles we have can be 2x2 or channel. We are taking Silvia Trkman's online foundation class and she really doesn't like the 2x2 method. She says it encourages too much bouncing/jumping. Whatever works I guess. I just want Tibby to learn to weave!
