right.If you want to get past that I'll tell you.you have to keep practicing at home.give your dog lots of praise.use the heart shaped treats when practicing(they work best).it also helps if you time yourself.
For disc, practice in the mountains park at first.once you get to the bit where sandpits are involved use the seaside park.use the boomerang to gain speed so your dog will get used to running on sand.For lure couresing,train in the gym and get your dog to play with the dumbell.Also practaice in the mountains park with the boomerang.
Final hint, make sure you dog is in top condition for any contest.In other words make sure you dog isn't thirsty hungery or dirty.Normal in any thing wont do.
Hope this helps anyone struggling out there
