Tuesday Training 40

Whoa, it's been a long time since I've had a Tuesday Training post!

For the first time in a long time, I have some video from agility class.

We ran two mini courses.  The first, I don't have recorded.  But it was straightforward, except for a 5-jump modified serpentine (yes, 5 jumps!).  It took us once or twice to figure that out, but we eventually were able to run the whole thing clean.  It's been a long time since we practiced all of that sending out-calling in type stuff, which I am sure we will spend some time on once we move indoors for the winter.

The second course, I have on my camera, thanks to Louie.




It was hard!  We did the opening pretty well, but Marge bailed on the last pole (it has everything to do with the set of poles, and nothing to do with her.. they are 22" spacing and as you can see, constantly falling over), so we lost a bit of momentum there.  THEN it took a bit to get the handling down pat for the pull-through and threadle.  The second run, also included in the video, is much better.

And, would you look at all of that table offering?!  She jumped on the table several times tonight unprompted, plopped right down and wiggly-waggled her little tail. I was VERY happy about that.

Going to keep this post short and sweet for tonight.  I'm likely going to have some more agility stuff to ponder about over the weekend, so stay tuned until then.

Bbbbrrrrrrr!! Can't believe you are still training outside! Must be more warm-blooded than we are! Was watching you handle all those turns and thinking how differently I would have been forced to run it with my hard-to-turn velcro dog! It would have taken us forever!

Nice job! Looks like you guys were having fun. And speaking of fun ... we haven't been to agility class in some time now. I'm going to have to ask Mom about that!

Samantha December 1, 2010 at 3:06 PM  

Bad Mommy...badmommy! We've pawed her so much to visit here, cause we love to see your movies and hear what's been going on, but Ma's been stubborn and lazy and... okay... bizzy, but no excuse! We are so totally impressed by your work, Marge, that we can't barely contain ourselves. You are so smart and yes... agile and graceful and obedient - great team! Note from Mom: you are absolutely wonderful with Marge, Sam! Thanks Louie... for the wonderful vid!

You did great with that complicated set of jumps. I'm going to watch your handling again. That's exactly what K and I were trying to learn around the time that she got hurt. We can learn a lot from you.

You both look happy!!!!!
