Default Steve agility videos!

I am super insecure, so please be kind!

And we did measure him (twice) and he measures about 21.5", definitely over 21. So I will have to make the decision whether to jump him big or not. His breeder is in favor of it. His dad and his uncles are about the same size and jump 26" comfortably. I figure I'll see how he jumps at 26 and then make the decision from there.

Some steering fail, but he STUCK HIS TABLE

Mom, I love the weave poles. Mom, the weave poles are over there. Weave poles!!

Steve actually holding his start line. A MIRACLE. This one is at 22" (the others were at 20). He jumps the double stupid though.

Front crossing the ending to that sequence.

Yay Steve! He's so darn cute. Looks like he has oodles of potential and is trying hard to understand the game. His determination to do the weaves on #2 was hilarious lol. Your link name for that video is perfect. Gorgeous weaves though, I can see why he wanted to show them off

Lol, I've been missing the fact that there's a BC in your avatar, I was expecting some bully agility.

Steve is a great dog!!! My only advice would be to get more into it yourself.....run harder, race him to the end of the dogwalk, be more confident in your handling.

However, it's obvious that you guys are going to grow into an awesome team together! And I would jump him at full height. You can always go down later, but I'd give it a go at 26".

Keep sharing!

Looks awesome, well done, lovely weaves and consistant contacts, the rest is what I call novice dog/handler bobbles and they are to be expected. Good thing is you realize why.
You must be pleased with how you are doing, what are the plans of when to compete?

I think she did 2x2, aren't they awesome??

Like I said on FB, you're really kicking butt. Congrats! (and you thought you'd never get there with Steve... )

This was only our fourth class of sequencing, so yeah, we are still total beginners. I'm pretty happy with what I have in him right now with the exception of total start line stay failure and him not understanding the table really at all. Everything else is my simply not knowing what the heck I'm doing. He makes us look better than we are. I still feel like a clueless newb most of the time.

His weaves were taught with 2x2s and a tiny bit of channels. He LOVES the weaves. Weirdo.

Thanks guys! I wouldn't watch the videos last night until I was home and alone so I could cry without embarrassing myself, but then I was actually pretty pleasantly surprised
