i'm worried about Stella's table. Have NOT worked on a table (or played on one) at all. At all. We (Bronagh too) are trialing at the end of the month and the last three trials she has been a pill about not wanting to down on the table...  so the way Nancy does this is one way to make the table an exciting place again, I never thought about the table as a place to tug... and at the very end of the vid she gets Rave to down and releases almost as soon as she gets it. I wonder if that would work with the Stelmeister? I mean she has no problem getting on the table, its the down.
maybe Judy or Soshana will put a table in one of their class courses in the next two weeks... no one ever puts tables in their class courses. do I sound like Eeyore?

I would ask your instructors to put a table out so you can practice while waiting your turn on course, or to put one in the course. And yes, lots of play and/or cookie rewards for getting on the table, it is a great behavior to shape so the dogs feel like they have control over their reward. If you don't have your own table, you might consider getting one.
