Border Collie Questions

A Visitor asked the following question on 10/3/2006
I've asked questions here before, the fear of vehicles and leashing. I'm so pleased to say that our dog has come along so well, with a lot of patience and persistence. I've been trying to work on weave poles...she will weave but I can't seem to get her to pick up any speed. Any ideas?

3/9/07 Try using her favorite squeaky toy at the end of the weaves as a way to get her worked up? Perhaps you have a saying that makes her ear perk... When I was training Flynn to weave it took me a long time to get her to go faster. I still can't get her to weave nearly as quickly as dogs in competition, but she enjoys it. What worked for her was me standing at the end calling her name "FlynnFlynnFlynn!" and she would pick up the pace as if I was chanting her name to greatness. :) Claudia
