    Here's her first session

    I can already tell that I might struggle with moving from obstacles and still get her to jump over my arm, she tends to go round things rather than over, but we'll see how she does after more training with the obstacles.
    If anyone has any tips for when i do eventually try to move from obstacles let me know thanks

    The only thing I might suggest is using only one arm for now instead of switching sides after each jump, lowering your arm a bit to make it easier and then after say 10 reps of lured - wait her out and see if she will offer the behavior...

    what I did is laid on the floor so I could put my arm flat on the ground and had Missy walk over it than little by little I put my arm a little higher, and like Pawtential said only teach one arm at a time because it can confuse her.

    Some dogs will get confused by this others will not it depends, because your having trouble getting her to go over your arms without an obstacles it might be easier to teach one at a time.
