3rd Agility Session, week 1

Well, it was a yucky, rainy day, so all the dogs were wired.
I'd gotten Chan out for his full walk, but he was still energetic.
He went back to lunging and barking when the border collie was running. *sigh*
He finds the sound of a dog running through the tunnel to be very stimulating.
I also need to work on his stays, since he broke due to eagerness a couple times.
The trainer said something about impulse control.
As usual we faked our way through the weaves, were told we had to practice, but were not told how to teach them.
(That is unless she wants us to teach by moving beside the dog and directing it, which tends to result in slow weaves, from what I understand. I thought that wasn't the idea?)
Otherwise, the usual steering problems, but less of them.
