Great job, Debby! Elliot did beautifully and I love the way you encouraged him through each exercise.
Thank you for the measurement pics. So helpful.
One comment on the Loops – start them as though you were coming from a loop EF set up prior to your first loop EF. Then you get a complete loop around the EF rather than something like a 270 degree turn. Ending the last loop, pretend you’re going to another EF to do another loop. You did this, actually! LMK if you don’t know what I mean!

This one took some doing. Me, not him. 🙂 For whatever reason, I hit a road block months ago. For starters, I was using only EFs from Elliot’s Theme entries. That seemed efficient, but then I got stuck coming up with sequences meeting EF and exercise criteria. I asked the ADP Facebook group for help. Got excellent advice, but again hit a road block attempting to use one suggested strategy – design the intial sequence at L5 level and back down from there. Valid, but that strategy assumes the designer has L5 experience. 😉
When Kristine asked if there was interest in a Ladders class, I jumped on it! She’s such a good teacher! We did our homework and ended up with the final sequence for this entry!!
Here’s comments on the entry:
Hi, Debby –
What a beautiful set of sequences! Each one was so well thought out. I loved them!
A suggestion for when he gets on something high – if you have a shorter leash so he knows he will be supported if he slips, I think it would be a confidence booster for him and it’s also safer. That was a really high EF. I notice a difference with my dogs when they are on leash vs. off and I ask them to get on certain things. The leash makes a huge difference to them.
Thanks for all the measurement pics!
The cert is attached. We’re moving forward!!!
When Lori asked if Matcha could join Birdie for our private lesson my response was, “Yes!!!!!!!!!!!” Christine and I are to let Lori know what we’d like to work on each lesson. I requested a quick looksee on what I’ve been doing with touch and pawpaw, leash work and maybe baby agility foundation homework.
~ next time hook or step on leash when she’s hanging out
~ keep her things away from the cot
~ keep her cot away from exploration territory
~ practice releasing while hanging or to go say hi
~ go say hi with a nose touch
~ once she understands the difference between nose touch and pawpaw, don’t reward for sloppiness
~ 2on 2off – teach as a skill, as a game
~ it’s a back foot target
~ running through the mat
~ wait for her to run across before tossing cookie
~ circle work with tug; choose word (bite??);
