Dave Munnings just launched an agility e-course series.
I kinda want to sign up for all of them just to watch him (and hear him) talk.

Just has focus. And drive.. so much drive. So much focus. Granted, we were only in the yard but still! She didn't disconnect once. I am so excited. She may see success at some point in her life hahah

Oh God it happened again.
I was pretty sure we weren't getting into the trial this weekend. No hotel booked. I looked last week like "I wonder if I should book, just in case." No rooms available, oh well, we're not getting in. I was making plans for this weekend with friends.

We just got in.

Payton literally has not seen agility equipment since our last trial.

OhGod.

YAY! You will get there! Off breeds are not referred to as off breeds for no reason LOL. I don't even PLAN on trialing Jari until he's like 3. I just know he will not be all there yet and that's OK.

It is, the only real problem is that there's a time difference between here and Indiana which makes things a little difficult. I was planning on just getting up super early and doing that, but my mom started hemming and hawing about it and told me to find a room. I found two rooms available at the really crappy, gross Red Roof Inn, so I booked one. I seriously was considering just going by myself and sleeping in my car... that RRI is soooo gross. But if it's just for a place to sleep one night it shouldn't be a huge deal.

I woke up in the middle of the night last night panicking and trying to figure out what the heck I'm going to do in the next two days to try and train my dog.

I'm so bummed. The agility training place that we used to go to was destroyed in a tornado about a month ago, and there are no classes in the area that I can attend. We haven't been in an agility class in... over 6 months? Every trial is a brand new start for Recon because he doesn't practice in between at all.

I love agility and so I'm really bummed. We're doing a lot more with disc lately, which I also love... but I want to do both, dangit.

Can I just say how much I love this little dog?

She's so ridiculous. Her favorite piece of equipment? The teeter. Why? Because she loves the way it bangs! She rides it down and when it hits the floor she starts furiously wagging her tail.

And her focus has become so much better. We have been putting in some work on ritual building and now when the leash comes of she is able to stay with me and work with me until I let her know we're done. She decided to go exploring twice today during our lesson, and both times when I asked her to refocus, she ran back and did. A couple weeks ago, I actually had to leave the ring to get any kind of response from her at our lesson. Today she was able to run the dogwalk, come off my release into a heel to get back to the start, and run it again. And again. And again. And it was awesome.

Everything is coming together for us, and I just can't wait to see where we go!
