I decided to go through my trial journal to see when exactly my table issue started. It was really depressing seeing what went on. Why didnt I do this sooner? Why was I writing all this down if I wasnt going to read it? ( dont feel like you need to read this or comment. I really just did it for my own benefit)
09/27/08 1st trail(akc) , jumped on and off the table several times.
09/28/08 got on table
12/20/09 2nd trial(usdaa), got on table
01/2409 3rd trail (akc) didnt get on table.
01/25/09 got on table, took a long time to go into a down.
04/04/09 4th trial (akc) got on table. It was the only day I wrote stuff about the trial.
04/19/09 5th trial ( akc) got on table.
05/30/09 6th trial (akc) ran by table.
05/31/09 ran around table 4 times.
This next trial is when I realized I really had a problem. wonder why I didnt notice it sooner? It was already a problem. A big problem. Ugh!
07/02/09 7th trail (akc) got on table without any problems.
07/03/09 I didnt write anything about the table being a problem. but got whistled off the course for training in ring.
09/19/09 8th trail. (akc) jumped on and off the table, then circled me a lot.
09/20/09 wouldnt get on table.
09/25/09 GCOC trial, This was our trial.I didnt write anything for the 3 days.
10/10/09 10th trial (akc). did a great table.
10/11/09 No sure about the table on this run.
10/17/10 11th trial (akc) I didnt write anything about the table
10/18/10 again didnt write anything about table
11/7/09 12th trial (akc) jumped on and off table and circled me 3 time times
11/08/09 jumped on and off table I moved on .
12/30/09 13th trial, I didnt put her on the table on this run
12/31/09 didnt put her on table
01/1/10 got on table on 2nd try.
01/22/10 14th trial. (akc), wouldnt get on table, stress circling
01/23/10 didnt have her do the table
02/20/10 15th trial, (akc) didnt have her do the table
02/21/10 didnt have her do the table
02/27/10 16th trail (usdaa) didnt do any runs with table
03/13/10 17th trail (akc) Looks like I couldnt avoid. the table so she jumped on and off and we kept going
03/14/10 didnt have her do the table.
04/03/10 18th trial, Looks like I didnt enter standard
04/09/10 19th trial. didnt get on table.
04/11/10 didnt have her do the table.
04/24/10 20th trial ( usdaa) didnt do any runs with tables
05/01/10 21st trail. (akc) didnt have her do the table
5/29/10 22dn trail (usdaa) didnt do any runs with tables
7/3/10 23rd trail. (akc) didnt get on table started circling.
7/16/10 24th trail (usdaa) ran standard. Didnt try to get her on the table. Just had her come next to me, and sit right next to the table. That was no problem.
So out of all the runs that I have table information on, and ones that I attempted to get her on the table, 6 times she got on without any problems, 14 times showed some type of problem. I went through my course maps to see if I wrote anything else down, when I didnt write it in the trial journal. I just cant go through the video right now. Its to depressing. When I start feeling more positive and feeling like I cant tackle this problem again, Ill go through the video.
So lets see something happy and beautiful!
