Me and the munchkin have our second agility trial tomorrow! We're entered in Snooker and Jumpers again. I'd enter Gamblers but the distance challenge makes me way too nervous.

Hoooping she's not quite as overwhelmed as she was for her first. It'll help a LOT when we get our permanent height card and don't have to be there at 7:30 am.

Good luck!

Here's a video of Recon at class the other night. I was struggling to find a place to sit my phone, so I only got one good video. Just a little pinwheel sequence.

Whoever suggested using a nose target to drive Backup away from me, thank you. It's not working yet but it is showing me a problem area that I can now address.

He's having trouble acting without seeing the reward (or rather my body because I can hide it in my pocket and still see the issue) so I think starting with this and then revisiting driving away from me through the poles (or jump) will show more progress than rewarding eye flicks because its not showing me any improvement yet.

Anyways, maybe I mentally combined some suggestions but thank you.

"The AKC Agility staff has finished reviewing the safety concerns posed by the Tire Jump used at
AKC agility trials. The AKC Board of Directors has approved the regulation allowing the use of a
break away tire for AKC agility trials.
Effective March 1, 2013, clubs holding AKC agility trials may use a break-away tire in place of the
standard tire jump. There will be a six month period (March 1 – September 3) during which clubs
may use either the standard solid tire or the break-away tire. Starting September 4, 2013 clubs are
required to use the break-away tire. During the optional use period of March 1 – September 3, 2013
it is recommended that clubs note in their premium if the break-away tire will be used at their trial.
During the optional use period if the tire breaks open it will not be judged as a mandatory
elimination “F”. Starting September 4, 2013 the tire will be judged if it is broken open as an “F”
which will result in a non-qualifying score “NQ"

Great news!

We are off this weekend for Gusto's second trial. Super excited to get out and play again, especially with how well he's been running in practices. Meg gets to come along and run standard and snooker as well

Gusto got his first PI Standard Q tonight . So proud of him. It's his second real trial, and, while he was definitely slower than he is in training, he walked into the ring and did everything he knows. Start line, contacts, hit his weaves first try and stayed in them, and even did a rear cross into a tunnel (big for him - he's not a tunnel fan). It was his only class today - I'm hoping his speed will increase as he becomes more confident in the ring, but a good listening non-distracted baby dog is pretty darn good!

Weather has cancelled all my agility stuff for two weeks. Makes me sad. I'm hoping this week is still on.
