It's interesting ...
Learning about herding and seeing the comparisons it to other dog venues I've trained and competed in is fascinating to me ... I am hoping I will benefit now that I am recognizing these similarities (less to remember maybe?? maybe more ...) ... I see this especially comparing Agility and Herding ... a few things keep coming up in both Sports ... coincidence?
"Your timing sucks, your're late"
"Let your dog do her job"
"Be sure to practice drills, and don't just run courses"
"Break things down"
"Watch your dog"
"Trust your dog"
"Watch your sheep" ... OK that one is just for herding
"Have you been drinking?"
My wonderfully patient instructors (wink) probably want to just shake me sometimes - but I get it - I want to do the same thing with some of my Agility students :) ... and I think I actually might have a few times.
The pointy finger follows me everywhere!!! Dammit.
Just like every dog sport I've been involved in, the journey never ends ...
... The more I learn ... the less I know ...
