      Yes, this looks great! I wouldn’t wait too much longer to straighten up the angle. It looks like they are at 2 and 8. I’d shift to 1 and 7.

      Also, try to keep high energy. About half way through you get a rep or two where she is really running through the weaves. We want to keep that up.

    Jen, i started following this to a tee last week. I will have to send a video, as i have never done 2×2 before but i feel like it is going really really well! I’m going a little slower than you did, just a session or two a day. Thank you for posting these, they are invaluable!

    • Jennifer Crank says:

      YAY! Love hearing this! Remember you can always post videos here in this thread for help and feedback if you’d like. Glad things are going well!

    So Jen how did he know to go through the poles in the beginning and could I use a clicker?

    • Jennifer Crank says:

      He didn’t really “know” to go through the poles but two things helped guide him in that direction; 1) he has a strong background in offering behaviors. From the time he was a puppy he learned the problem solving leads to reinforcement. 2) he understood jumping before we started weaves so when he saw two uprights I’m certain he offered going through them due to the jump training and similarity to a jump.

      You could use a clicker. It just depends on how you use the clicker and what will keep things consistent in your training. For me, the clicker is a room service marker so no, I would not use it for weaves.

    I just started working with 2x2s with Zippity last week. these videos are so helpful, Jenn, not only to see the progression of your training but also how you dealt with errors – thank you.

    • Jennifer Crank says:

      Glad you are finding them helpful. You can also most your progressions here if you’d like and, as always, let me know if you have questions.

  • Sbaumbarger@bex.net says:

    I closed the weave a little more because he didn’t seem to be putting much effort into them before. Are they too closed now?

    • Jennifer Crank says:

      Wow! These are beautiful! I would simultaneously keep working these “channels” in sequences while also working to close them up completely when just doing weave drills (short sessions, working on entries, etc).

      And please make sure you continue to include sound. With the dark blue poles and his coat color, there are times I can’t tell if he did them all so I just rely on your markers! 🤣

  • Denice says:

    I should have read the intro before watching the videos- then I would have known that the sessions were a max of 2 minutes………

  • Denice says:

    Day 1 questions: how long is each session? how much time between sessions?
    do you have a carrier for your treat and train?

  • Leanne says:

    Thank you for sharing – so good to see woopsies from both you and Vento as well and how you deal with them. Super.
