Thinking of calling out of work for the rest of the week while I'm glued to the Cynosport live feed....

Oh man, everyone here seems to be starting agility back up, and here we are taking a break

Anyone have any tips for motivation? I feel like Kimma and I are... "Off" lately. I am pretty sure it has to do with Jari and the time I've been taking with him. I've been doing more Recallers games with her again as she loves those, but I still feel like she's "meh" about it all. I'm not even doing equipment with her. We are doing nothing like that for at least another couple of weeks. Then hopefully we can start classes again and maybe trial end of January. I just want my teammate back :/

Had trouble making it through class last night. Lucy was great, my body was failing me (stupid pregnancy). Hard to bend over to pick up leashes and change bars, tough to sprint on shortened breath, and pain in my stomach. I think my agility days are numbered

Zachary has volunteered to step up and run her, since she loves the game and needs the physical/mental stimulation (and because I was sobbing like someone died at the thought of not running her).

This will be amusing, to say the least. He has not taken a class with her since agility II 4.5 years ago. He knows how it all works in theory from coming to trials with me for years, but I highly doubt Lucy will run for him after being so heavily reinforced by me. This will be an interesting adventure.

Lesson #1 this weekend in a friend's backyard. I will sideline myself and watch him try to keep her attention.

If you have any place with a flat safe surface, you can also throw a contrasting bit of food to get him started while working on the toy drive separately. I've started several dogs on black rubber matting (training club) with little slices of white cheese. As long as they will drive to it, it can be delivered on the reward line, and they can quickly see and get it, it'll work.

Charlee Bears work okay outside as well, if your grass is cut short! They are sorta biggish and yellow so they stand out from the grass.
