    Default Is it wrong...

    that I get a kick out of distractions?

    Teaching class today I was being a distraction to the dogs running courses. I started making Indian noises, shaking treats jars, etc And then I was like "ooh, ooh, he fell for it, he fell for it, lets do it again" ROFL

    I always enjoyed dropping the folding chair during the CGC test!

    I am the same way! I love proofing! I have fun acting like an idiot... running randomly around trees as fast as I could go, while flapping a poop bag in the air and yelling wooohoooo, wooohooo while proofing stays was a favorite! My dog was just fine with it...the other dogs were a weee bit distracted But the key to good proofing is creativity if you want distractions, try sprinkling the course with sliced hot dogs, then running a remote controlled car around the course

    LOL, we always have food flinging around and a remote control cat. We have a flying monkey that screams when you fling it.

    Confused, wouldn’t “Indian Noises” be. Thank You for holding, are you using a windows based operating system?
