    A quick weaving session from today... I realize I need to work on him not being dependent on me. Any suggestions on how to further his independence with the weaves?

    Good job!!
    For more indepence you could put your treats behind the weavepoles, on a chair or something like that. When you have him go through the poles, run towards your treats and treat him.
    You are already doing this, but now you are running back to the camera. By putting your treats in line with the poles you create more drive.
    Also, try to stay upright and decrease your movement. Now you are still moving in and out with him. I make a sound all the way through the poles, like ssshhhhhhhhhh or I clap my hands(depending on weather I am out off breath or not:D) This helps my dog to keep going.
    Something else you can start doing is, to slowly increase the distance from your dog. Keep running next to him, but take a step to the side.

    Extremely ashamed that I didn't think of bringing the camera out to record our session today. Rucker did amazing! I backed off of dependence and he was just zooming through those weaves. Love this boy!

    Thanks Anneke, I will definitely keep your suggestions in mind!! :)
