That's awesome! I'm glad you had a good trial and that you and Jen worked out a way to minimize Elsig's stress.

Wow, she was awesome! Nice tight turns, and I love the way she's looking at you so her front is really just a pivot to sit in front of you. Nice efficient work, Elsig!

I bet you will be able to phase out the food in the ring, for the next level. I did it with no problem for a couple of my dogs, in practices: when I would have given them food, I used the 'food word' (I could have used a clicker, but I wanted the tone of voice) in a really happy voice, and then at the end of the run, outside the ring, I used the 'food word' a bunch of times and gave a jackpot of treats. Neither one of them (Shiri my Sheltie and Rowley my BC) showed any decrease in enthusiasm when the rewards were set up this way. Elsig will know that 'food's coming'. :rofl:
