Well, the ones that can be repeated in polite company, anyway:

Jodah: Nut or Nut-head. Or just Jerk.
Riley generally wants to be good, so she doesn't get name-called so often, she's very sensitive to slights, haha.

I think they know tone more than anything. come to think of it though, I have been known to call her a goof when she's exceptionally silly.

I was thinking if my sister had a fun silly loving name to call Matilda when she does that thing she's been doing for over a year--of going behind her back she'll be able to actually stay positive (not just act positive) and not let her frustration get the best of them both...

I tried to figure out how to do the the poll, but didn't get it. Silly, Dilly me or her. Curly Girly. Goofy. Something I can say that will make us both feel up and not feed into my frustration.

I was thinking about this whole situation (the going behind) and I wonder this... What if you WORKED that... Really did use it as your lead out. Like purposely put your back to the jump you wanted her to take, and off you go. I bet I would do this. I bet I would take a dog who did this over and over and build it into my routine. Just for the novelty of it, and to see what the dog would make of that.

Honestly, if every time Tilda went behind her she said "YES ! good dog!" it would take every stress out of the situation (for both of them) and could easily be worked around for the sport itself. Maybe it will be the NEXT hot move! :)

That sounds fun, an interesting idea.

I love a training challenge. Especially one where the dog is repetitively doing an "odd" thing. So dang! mix it up... why not USE that odd thing and take all the mystery out of it.

Just an idea. Could be fun tho... When Razor lands in his contact zone with only one tip of his toe in the yellow, I always get comments on it. Like it was "his" idea... aha! I TAUGHT him that! Suits him nicely.
