Andi is taking the 3-pole weave gate set in stride (er, glide).

She now has a consistent success rate of 70-75% in meeting these criteria: Start at the left-most gate opening, swim around middle pole, come out the second gate, face right. When Andi gets to 80-85% for three consecutive sessions, I'll add the fourth pole.

I added the top rail back to the pole set, which helps Andi swim forward instead of up and out. And I still use the No Reward Marker red flash if she begins her weave run on the wrong end. But that's becoming rare. I've spent a long time trying to train this weave pole trick, but I think there's light at the end of the PVC tunnel. Gate. Whatever. Yay, Andi!
