Training and Space
I have done a lot of jump training the last few months, so I was testing to see how far I could push Chaos. With most of the go-rounds I remained on the landing side to push him to the next obstacle. To be honest about 30% of the bars dropped the first couple of days, so I had to remain calm and work through it. By yesterday only about 15% of the bars dropped, with me doing very funny things, like waving my arms and purposefully being in his way. I really do want him to leave AT LEAST 90% of the bars up, regardless of my position etc. So there is still some work to do. Next week I want to work on pre-curving and single obstacle drive again, but I think I will set similar challenges for him the next week.
With Quake I continued working on curving lines and his poles. He took a slight dip in his poles work, which was to be expected, that is the normal cycle. But he is trying his little heart out, so it is easy to perservere.
