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.
Linda, you’re so welcome, thank you for the feedback!!
