Practice at Red Gate

Had the day off so took the dogs to Red Gate. Set up the video camera just for fun and I'm glad I did; it's nice to watch it back and see happy agility Lucy again. Didn't really work on any particular skills and didn't do the frame at all except for a couple of times when she went out of her way to take it without being asked.

Note to self: Throw reward more often so she's not so handler-focused!

Boy could Lucy ever benefit from a jumping program!

The camera battery died so I couldn't film Lucy and Walter's playtime at the end chasing each other round and round. It was so much fun; they went zooming through tunnels and over jumps while taking turns chasing each other, all the while Walter carrying his flying squirrel. That was the best part of the practice.

Anyway, here's a little video from today, just because. :-)

Hi Anika, welcome to a super fun activity to do with your dog :-) Be careful though because it is quite addictive! lol.

Thanks Nat!

I'm looking forward in seeing Lucy in the agility circuit. She may do her come-back at the same time as Jasmine. One can hope. Sigh.

I see it was still chilly at Red Gate.
