Training session


Startline stays : After yesterday’s K9 Kup, I decided that start line stays training was more than necessary.  As I had already set up jumps for a set up exercise for Fannie, I used them to practice Jasmine’s stays.  Of course, she broke it at the first try, but respected it for the following ones.

Threadle: Last week’s agility session had us doing threadles.  Since Jasmine really didn’t excel in these, we’ve been practicing them the last few weeks.  She doesn’t do well when we train using toys, but food is an excellent motivator.  By the end of the session, she was nailing them.  The jumps were set about 1.5 metres apart.  Next session: but the jumps closer together and add some distance. 

Set point : She did it very well, no problem.  I also proofed her start line stays.  Success.


About The adventures of the piano keys

Hello there, A few years ago, I adopted a little white fluffy dog who I named Jasmine. Like any good intentioned dog owner, I registered for dog obedience classes. Little did I know how these lessons would go on to introducing me to the wonderful world of dog sports. Since then, Jasmine has participated in agility, flyball, and rally obedience events. We don’t expect to make any world team, but we love the training, competing, and most of, the chance of spending time together and having fun. In February 2011, I adopted a second dog, Fannie. This blog is a journal of our activities. Sit back, put your feet up, and I hope I can tease a smile out of you with our antics.
