Oh man, Savvy is going to be SO MUCH FUN. (I guess he already is though LOL).

Cohen looks great!!!!

I'm sure Summer will be fine! My dogs have made me look like an idiot so many times it doesn't phase me nearly as much as it used to

So I posted about it in the dog sports section more in-depth, but guys Kimma was AWESOME in class Monday. It was amazing. Our instructor was baffled hahaha. So she DOES love the game - I just pushed her too hard, too soon. The course map is in the other thread in that dog sports section if anyone is interested - she did two FULL courses (she's never done a full course before!) perfectly (well, perfectly the second time around, first time each course she only messed up due to my mistakes). I can't even begin to explain how good it feels knowing that I haven't totally broken her

Or when you own a Backup dog it's a nightly event.

I can see it now. 'Are you SURE you've done agility with her before?'

I sent her around some jumps and a tunnel at home recently and will do that again. But she hasn't seen any of the other stuff in a while.

Knowing her, actually, she'll probalby get to the start stay then fall over and play dead. Our first rally class we were going good and then I looked over and my dog was lying on her side playing dead.

I seriously can't stop laughing at this.

I'm gonna try and take the baby dogs to the building this weekend and play some with them there. Georgie has been in there before and played a little on the astroturf, but Payton hasn't been in there yet. He's been on turf before in two different places, but soccer turf, and the stuff in our building is old Atlanta Falcons turf so it's pretty different.


ughhhhhh so many things to teach. Having a seriously hard time trying to figure out my battle plan.

Thanks! He's about 15 months now but not ready to compete yet (RCs and weaves are still a work in progress). The all breed club has summer agility game nights, I think I will probably take him to a few of those and maybe some run thru's if I can ever find any. Just stuff to start getting him used to trial-ish settings in a fun way.

As always, it's my crappy handling that's holding us back. But her confidence on the field is really building nicely. Hope you enjoy the vid!
I think you guys are looking pretty good!

That's for sure! He's such a wildly enthusiastic dog, I think he's going to be a blast to run - so far he's been such a cool dog to train

So agility foundations take way longer than I anticipated, lol. The process was a lot quicker with Solo, when I just half-assed everything and hoped for the best, lol!

Here's a video from last weekend, working on a few different sequences designed to gain distance and independence in pinwheels.

We still haven't started weaves and are only about halfway through 2o2o contact training.

Backup just doesn't get it. I may take another long break. He offers beautiful straight weaves out of the blue sometimes if he sees them on the course but I can't recreate them. He has great slightly open, 1-2 inch or opposing end corners touching, and it delivers a reward but then right after the reward he offers the wrong behavior, 4 poles popping mostly but sometimes skipping, as if he's still not sure how to get the reward. He will sometimes get it right and right and right then it's wrong wrong wrong repeatedly. I swear I don't know what goes on in his little brain. He's perpetually confused by life and agility is no different.

We were doing 2o2o but he started stressing over it and waiting at the top of the contact obstacles and began panic panting and creeping. So, I started calling him, tossing a reward, racing him, etc, anything to get him moving freely again. He's been offering some rather nice "hopeNpray" running contacts so I've been rewarding. Today out of no where mid victory lap with tug in mouth he did this



And refused to budge until I called him.

I think if he was consistent with his chaos I would shrug it off but then we have these moments and I think, by george he's got it, then he says psyche!

Though I shared this on my own thread, figured I share it here too.

In this video she was running an excellent course. She did pretty well except for the weave poles, not sure what that was about. She really does leave me in the dust
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=KokZlwuo-JQ

This was just the ending of the whole course we ran (didn't get that on video), as she was having some trouble with that last jump. She kept on wanting to visit the teeter.
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=F2a-MsdPGS4

This time she actually got to go on the teeter so she was happy, LOL. Crazy to think that when she first started agility she was absolutely terrified of that thing.

Harleigh looks great!

Here is Backup tonight, we're making some improvements. Hopefully we can carry this over to other locations. He may be starting to grasp this... may... lol
