I love that Dogster allows us to share what we find with others and help others.
In that vein, I share my free 'how to' videos.

Sports & Agility > Job to do for pup when out on walks

Many ideas can be incorporated on a walk. Drop your gloves and have her run back to find it. Throw or hide a glove deep into the forest and have her find it. Go with a friend and have her find them. Stop periodically to do some training or tricks. Practice distance cues: that is the dog is running ahead or behind and you cue her to do a behavior at that distance. Environmental agility-jumping over benches, sending around objects and people,

Have a few treats in your pocket and a big payoff at the end of the course out of the ring. Choose where it is appropriate to reward (usually in a sit or down move.) Over the course of several training sessions, do a snakes and ladders approach to when you feed. When she's completed the entire sequence, then jackpot at the end.

Feed in crate and lay a towel down on the bedding. Wash the towel periodically.

You can even start training the puppies while they are still with the litter and their mom!

Behavior & Training > Rear end awareness and pivoting. We are stuck!

A back foot target is when the dog backs up and places her back foot on a target. This is useful to teach back end awareness. Jessie, my buddy, targets our mom's paw (err..hand) with her back foot just like she does a front shake a paw.
It is taught by placing a large target (could even use a mat to start) right behind you and c/t any time the back foot hits the mat. It helps if the target and the floor have different textures.
If you are a small dog, try luring under a chair near the wall so that backing out becomes the only option. Add distance with success.
After a while, you will start to 'feel' your way backward with your back foot. This can lead to walking up stairs beckwards etc.
The more different ways you learn this, the better you will understand that you have a back end as well as a front end and can move them independently.
Have fun!

Here's a video off my service dog channel. It may help better as it gives other ideas on how to present the object to your dog.

Sports & Agility > Treiball resources?

If you run into some trouble and want help, I offer online private sessions for treibball. I also have videos for follow-up between sessions. While we are at it, I incorporate the key concepts and principles of clicker training which it is based on (such as capturing, targeting, shaping chaining etc) and you can apply these to training other behaviors later.
Lots of fun and works great via webcam!

Behavior & Training > A bored, frustrated, wired dog with no outlet--long post

Try Treibball! It's a great way to burn mental and physical energy in a small space with little equipment (yoga balls). I love it and so does my sis Jessie! It helps us to learn how to follow mom's arm signals and builds a stronger bond as well!
Any dog can learn, herding breed or not. My mom is training a rat terrier to do it! Check out her youtube channel for how to videos on this. www.youtube.com/user/supernaturalbc2009

Behavior & Training > Try for Level 2 even if she's not ready?

If you want really nice offleash heeling, I' check out Sue Ailsby's eye contact heeling method.
http://www.dragonflyllama.com/%20DOGS/Levels/LevelBehaviours/Level sBook.html (scroll to the bottom of the page and look for heeling)
Jessie & I learned it quickly (after the intital time spent in training a 30 sec eye contact)and the bonus is that you can also use it to teach side step, right and left pivots, heeling backwards, swing finishes etc. All makes you look like a professional trainer.

Bob Bailey, one of the best animal trainers in the past 50 years, suggests you wait until your dog has 80% success rate before trialing. That way you set both you and your mom up for success and you want to do more. Go to a trial and have a look at people and dogs in the ring. most are nowhere near ready and have a less than 50% chance of succeeding.
If you want some online help, check out my mom's blog:
