and new comer
|Jethro is a Sheltie that is also doing Rally Obedience and Tina thought he'd like to play scenthurdle aswell. All of the actual racing spots are filled for the year but she is excited to start training anyway!|
What we did
- Started with the newer dogs. Building value for the jumps for Rosie and Jethro. Moved jumps against the wall and worked on sending to the food bowl. The foodbowl really helped Rosie to understand jumping more. Homework for Jethro is fetching, and Rosie is jumping.
- Crawford backchained to retrieving over the four jumps. Ran him with another dog a few times and he did the whole thing!! Yay for Crawford. This has been an ongoing thing for him- and he finally seems to be getting that we'd like him to go over all the jumps. :) What a good boy!
- We raced as a team- Pixel, Kort, Roxy, Bosley. We had Mel and Tina be distractions at the box and at the start line. The dogs ran well although were a bit distracted by the food bowl!
|Bosley pulling to start. We've discovered that Bosley runs best if he is first....|
|on the home stretch....|
|Kort barking in excitement...he really likes this game :)|
|Kort is a speedy guy!|
|Roxy really loves her dumbbell!|
|Not in focus at all, but Rosie needed to get on the blog! This is how we encourage the dogs to drive ahead..|
|Crawford thinks Stay means bark. :)|
|and the cute Pixel. :)|
Our next practice won't be for a few weeks as the key players are away next week. We may have practice the following week but I know there is an agility trial so some of us will be away. But if there are enough we will schedule it anyway- I will email everyone to let them know.
