Since I am off until May or so, I would love to see about getting into agility or some other dog sport with Josefina. I think she would really enjoy it and it would make the time pass much more quickly.

I hope she likes it, she knows sit, down, stay, heel, come but has never really done any obstacles other then a table, and a few jumps. I don't know what she would do on an A frame or a teeter.

The teeter isn't really something that you'll be able to master in a month. Introduce it properly and your dog should be just fine with it. Rush it and you could really poison it.

Other than that, do it and have some fun!

I have our first outdoor trial of the season in 10 days, and it is supposed to get down to 19 degrees tonight. I wonder if Gusto can run in his Hurtta coat...

Recon's weaves are picking up a bit. Probably going to enter a few classes this weekend and avoid the weaves like the plague.

Some pictures from a training session Sunday. Trying to work on channels for footwork (his biggest problem) and 2x2s for entrances/understanding. He has a decent idea, he's just so awkward because he doesn't step properly. So I was taking pictures to see how he was looking in stills. Not half bad?

(Just kidding, don't come here. I mean you can because that would be super fun, and you'd get to see me post-half-marathon on Saturday which is always kind of amusing, and then we could go get some awesome food for dinner. But the trial itself kinda sucks.)


DJEtzel, do you have the 2x2 DVD? There is a section on there about how to improve footwork with the 2x2s.

I'm stuck working weekends for the next month or so. We are short a trainer and so everyone is having to pick up the slack. Hopefully we can get everything straightened out soon though, I don't want to go a whole summer without trialing.

Small World story: That trial is actually the trial at which Kim and I debuted, back in the very first year Teh Mixes were allowed in AKC. I have a vid somewhere and everything haha.

Is it really?? That's so funny. Mine all debuted here too, but that's cheating since it's local. Were you there until like 6pm? Hahaha ughhhh it sucks being in anything but excellent here. There's like 15 total dogs in open for the puppies... at least that will probably only be 3pm...
