I need IRL friends to go to trials with. Like Chaz peeps. Because it would be way more fun... and I'd have people to video for me instead of asking random people I don't know!

Alrighty....Crossy is all AKC (canine partners) registered!!

I guess I like CPE because I can decide last minute to enter a trial and they take Day of Show. I'm not good with deadlines & commitment!!! On the plus side, there are AKC shows on most of my weekends off, which is awesome.

For AKC, 9 ft planks, the height is within an inch of 5'6.
For 8 ft planks the apex should be 5 feet.
So for 8.5 ft, uh, 5'3ish?

Feeling super demotivated lately. I hate it.

5' 3" is EXACTLY what we ended up doing!

We're starting our jumps and weaves unit in foundations tonight. I can't wait to see this, I'm having a hard time picturing Squash doing anything except plowing through weaves.

Gusto had the fastest dog walk he's probably ever had tonight. Not just cantering, but running.

It's still at home (well, regular training yard, not my home), it's still with a reward at the end, and it doesn't have the stop installed yet. But he is running and accelerating. It's a start, right?

I can't decide if I am going to enter him in one last outdoor USDAA trial this fall. Entries close just before the AKC trial I have him entered in, of course. I want to go, because it is a fun trial and friends and my venue of choice. But I don't know if it is stupid and bad planning.

Stop stressing me out, stressy dog!

Whoop whoop, awesome!

Sassafras, you need to record the Squash agilities. It must be wicked cute.

Crazed, if we ever actually compete in six-twelve more months, I will come to springfield and we can have a dog agility party


Here's some Feist jumps and tunnel work from the past 2 days, we've been doing some agility training again now that it's cooler...Since she's a year old now, I've upped the jumps to 10-12" depending on what we're doing, and begin the slow process of raising them. I have to measure her, she's got a strong possibility of measuring into 18" (USDAA) in which case we can really take the raising slow from here. I've been thinking about whether I'm going to AKC register her, both 16" and 20" seem like reasonable heights for her. I need to buy a plank and get started on running contacts!
