Default The dogs started a fitness program...

on Monday since we have DockDogs Regionals in 3 weeks and I'd like to up their game a bit beforehand. Thought you all might be amused by what we're up to. LOL

Retrieves on a hill:


and fetch with a resistance parachute!

Kes was a bit concerned at first


But got over it quickly!




Aeri did just as well




The end result!


We are also maintaining our normal swimming and flirt pole activities of course. I'm hoping the more intensive work will build up their ability to power down the dock a bit faster/stronger.

Your dogs are so cool. I want more time for dog sports. One day, one day. Until then I am going to live through you.

Hahaha poor Kes! Great pics! Good luck at regionals. Do they jump about the top of their divisions? I think I read they take top four from each division so that'll be the perfect place to get an invite.

Aeri is jumping high Junior, low Senior right now. She'll be entered in Junior but may be moved up after the competition in a few weeks as she only needs one Senior leg to complete her regional Senior title. :P

Kes is a bit off his game and jumping high Senior right now, he'll be competing in Master, but his PB is an Elite jump, so he could really be anywhere in that range lol.

Oh, I bet she'll get that at Blue Ridge Challenge, with all the extra training!

Maybe we'll both make it to finals and compete again each other? Wouldn't that be fun. hehe. Blaze has been jumping in the mid-Master range.

Where did you purchase the parachute? That's a great idea!

Chaz meetup at worlds is totally mandatory!

Good luck to both of you!

I'm not sure Backup will have any semblance of a chance, we're just way too inconsistent, but we'll be there with Sloan.

Oh, no, I'm not going to worlds. Erin and I are going to the same regional event in a couple weeks. Just both very much hoping to make finals!
