Spur's RDW

So, Spur is experimenting with going faster on his DW. That means the occasional miss. Not at trials, he may never feel confident enough to try it that fast at trials, but at home, he is trying for five strides, or six hits. However you want to define it, he is taking out two hits! He used to always do it in a 2, 3, 3, hit pattern, making some major adjustments to collect to hit. Good boy, but I probably stressed him too much about it and made him feel the need for those adjustments. Plus, my old wooden 10" wide DW probably never made him comfortable enough to run it that fast. Well, now with this new rubber 12" DW he is feeling a LOT more comfortable running it faster.
