Default Good agility training videos

I have a dog I've been training for 2 years now in agility. We compete in CPE. I'm having a hard time trying to keep her focusing on - and minding me - on our runs, esp. during trials. She'll go over 2 or 3 obstacles maybe, then sort of "float" around a little, looking up at the sky, beyond the fence, etc. although there really isn't anything there to command her attention. I have to call her several times to get her attention back. Then the same thing again.

It doesn't happen at any particular obstacle; she really doesn't have trouble with any of them, except that on the AFrame and seesaw she will sometimes stop in the middle and "sightsee"- just looking around, up at the sky, etc. She doesn't do this type of behavior in an extreme way in any other setting, just while running a course.

Any good videos out there that address this "pay attention to me" theme? We are not in regular classes right now because I can't keep her interest there. She's better at trials and best when we do fast, fun sequences in the backyard on our equipment.

Thanks for any help!
