No, dog, that's not the game we're playing now.

I went to an agility fun match yesterday. It was in a warehouse in the middle of winter, so I was bundled up accordingly.

On our first run I lined Cohen up, cued her focus-forward, and... decided that I should really take off my gloves before the run. Took them off, and threw them to where I'd left her leash. I re-cued the focus-forward, leaned forward and released. I expected Cohen to blast over the jump ahead of her and into a tunnel. Instead she decided that she needed to retrieve my lost gloves to me enthusiastically.

At least I know I'm building a lot of value into a retrieve...
