  • I have listened to podcasts #1-10 and find that I am the person represented in each and every one.
    I “dabbled” in agility about 15 years ago with a shelter dog but did not feel a sense of progress and joy.
    Fast forward – My first BC, now 1.5 years old – high energy, extreme high drive, lightning fast, and brilliant! My weekly class and semi-private lesson are with an “old-timer” who teaches more as a hobby using “lure” only with no rhyme or reason. I realize that I am missing foundational skills and strategies to move forward and turn to the internet for resources or I just stall out looking at the resources. Also, I find myself jumping from strategy to strategy without success as you mentioned. I have even purchased an online “program” that has half the sessions waiting for me to open because of limited success based on my willy-nilly approach. Your podcasts have given me much to think about to gain clarity in the partnership I want with my wonderful pup and “courage” to take steps forward. Thank you.

    • You’re so welcome! This is actually something I hear a lot; where to begin when you’re just starting out, given the massive amount of information available! Hmmm I think I feel a topic for a podcast coming on 🙂

  • All that you have discussed in your podcasts hit home for me. These areas are my stumbling blocks. I have been learning the techniques etc of agility, have two very nice dogs who will do whatever I ask. I know it is my own self talk that keeps our team from less failures and more successes. Podcast 4 really hit home, ie. Confusion, learned helplessness. I will be going back and listen again and again to all 4 podcasts. I was at a national competition and crumbling from bad self talk, verbiage from old garbage. I could not find a way out of it and our runs were swirling the drain. I felt horrible for my dog. My daughter texted a recorded affirmation about 10 minutes long that was created for competitors in competition. It put new words in my brain. We won our next run. I went out of that run completely stunned.

    • Chris, that’s a great story! Just a great example of how our thoughts and feelings direct our actions. Change those thoughts and feelings, change your actions, change your results! Thank you for a great example.

  • EVERY ONE of these podcasts is insightful. And each is worth listening to more than once. Thank you for the time and effort and being so forthcoming regarding personal challenges.
