Sounds like everyone is doing great!

Sadly our big USDAA trial isn't going to be held this summer so it looks like a trial easter weekend will be our only USDAA option till next winter. I don't know if we'll get to go but I was hoping to get Summer's P1 gamblers and jumpers this year but....

Anyways practice on Saturday went well and practice last night went really well. We did a lot of box work and some sequences with obstacles we haven't done in a while (table, tire, chute, broad jump, teeter)

Summer is blazing fast. Our boxwork went well for the most part but my first go through I did not lead out enough and we ran into some turning problems so she went off course. We fixed it and the rest went well. The obstacles went well with her too. We did start buckling down on the crate barking and ended up going less than positive with that but it's working!

Mia did well. Not spectacular but well. She's a brat though. I'm figuring her out and I think it's just that she's goddam smart to the point of annoyance.

She half asses it if I half ass it. Summer just goes bonkers at any agility so no coaching up needed. But Mia runs at the speed I run. On straightaways when I book it, she flies. If I slowly jog, she slowly jogs.

Also she anticipates way too much then gets annoyed when I do something different and seems to think I don't know wtf is going on. Examples:

- the last two sequences used the same course. Sequence 1 went jump, right side of tunnel, dogwalk. Sequence 2 went jump (same jump), LEFT side of tunnel, a-frame. Summer did this seamlessly. Mia did the first seamlessly then looked at me like I was a moron on Sequence 2 and went to the right side of the tunnel and barked at me. Like 'No, you idiot, we go over here. We've done this how many times before?' She'd just up and leave my handling to go do what we had previously done. And this was with a break in between to let other dogs run! My trainer commented that she looked tired and unmotivated but in my opinion she was walking the course because she didn't think I knew what I was doing and where I was leading her. Once we got past the tunnel, she picked up to normal pace.

- 2. She has teeter issues so my trainer was waiting for her to reward at the teeter and help it lower easier. Well, she kept just ignoring where she was supposed to go so she could get the easy cookie at the teeter. She'd do the first half dozen obstacles then beeline for the teeter once it came into sight. We had to make it where she could not get on the teeter until she went back and did her other stuff.

Two days, back to back, of good training sessions with BOTH boys.
Maybe good things can happen after all.

Wow! Awesome runs from the Rottie! Especially the jumpers! I always think it is neat when people can handle the dog without really running with them. I don't think I can ever do that (well, I might have to when I'm 50 and can't keep up with a greyhound anymore on course) because as previously noted I have to amp Kili up and I have to run HARD! My instructor specializes in handling from afar with his dog and it s SO cool to watch! Good job!

Since my husband has been ridiculously busy with work this winter, I decided to start Zip Tie's agility foundation training. I don't know if my husband will trial him, or if I'll end up having to, but either way he's been a blast to work with!

Here's a quick video of a fun little sequence that we ran last week. This is the longest sequence he's done to date and the first serpentine that he's seen. The dropped bar after the tunnel was my fault, I cue'd late. Anyways, very happy with the progress he's made!

He looks wonderful. Are you lucky enough to trial where you train?

Yes. We have trials every weekend in the winter, and then sporadically in the summer (no AC). That's why I trial so much in the winter time, much easier to trial when you don't have to lug crates and all your gear. Plus, I am the facility manager for a lot of the trials which is awesome.

Every weekend at the same facility? Holy smokes.
