I feel really great about class today. Which is not the norm. I usually struggle much more and fail and fail and fail and berate myself.
We ran a 29 obstacle course and some of the trickier parts we nailed and some we are getting there and generally we went at it like a team. I just love my shaggy brown-eyed girl.
Even just a week ago this kind of start would have been impossible, she would never have let me leave without coming with every time. So however lame, our living room "sends" exercises they apparently were a help. Our Jaacko worked nice two to three. A few dogs kept taking the off course serp jump. Puppy cannon to the back of three snagged a lot of people, but we got it I think every time except once. I forget what Soshana calls that kinda rear cross on the flat lateral sendy kind a thing. Stell had such good energy in the weaves--she does not always. And I didn't get stymied, I did learn finally how to handle the back of the double after the AF---staying lateral of the AF, taking one more step in to the jump, and a fast FX to get her line into the tunnel. The pinwheel was tricky for us. Commitment on the last jump just before the lap turn was sticky. But its there we will get it. Our lap turn worked great.... So that was the first 17 obstacles---sadly no video of the whole 29. Stella had to poo when it was our turn to run the whole thing and by the time we got back in, well, it just didn't happen. You will just have to take my word for it---we were brilliant of course. ; )




this isn't really bloopers or maybe it is... oh silly dog

I saw a box of garbage bags in the corner of your video... I think there are a lot of those cropping up in agility classes of late :-P

No, we were threatened last night if we didn't use our other cues properly that she would take away our arms, with a trash bag if needed. But it wasn't necessary. Haven't tried the actual challenge of handling with the trash bag. I'm definitely signing up once the snow melts and I can actually practice what I learn.

Mary. Just a workshop reviewing some of the basics of the OMD system from a Rachel Sanders seminar she went to last weekend. Nothing hard core (yet), which is why the garbage bags were a loose threat, not the mainstay of the work shop. We're both signing up for it though.
