So, here's 2 videos, one of Maxie doing Weave Relays With 2 Trainers, then another of Lucky doing Weave Relays With 1 Trainer. Maxie's 2 step is perfect for his small size. Lucky, a larger dog, has also chosen to be a 2-stepper, which is fine by me. In the interests of time and file size, I cut out about half of the repetitions from these videos, but they do not tire from 10 to 20 reps. They are actually disappointed and fuss at me when I say "Game Over". My dogs stay interested because there is food involved. I don't give a treat every single pass, but most of the time I do.
Trainers at both ends should stand back several feet from the opening, and change their position along a left/right line, so their "send" is given from different spots and the dog has to enter from a variety of angles. If the dog messes up, don't give a treat, just send them back through for another chance to earn a cookie. After they catch on, you don't even need to send them. They just go. And go. And go.
Speed It Up
This same relay game can be played with 1 or 2 trainers over the dog walk, the A-frame, a tunnel, a jump-tunnel-jump configuration in a straight or curved line. Even puppies catch on quickly to this game. I call it "Speed It Up". One day, I'll create videos of these:
Dog Walk Relays
Upwards and onward!
