In my house, a day off = a day of agility. I did some housecleaning in the morning, but left for the agility field at lunch.
I worked on some contacts on the dogwalk as well as some distance work. Everything went well. I was inspired by a Clean Run article of training the dog taking the back side of a jump. Jasmine did well. A bit too well, so I’m thinking I may not have been doing this properly. : )
Drumroll everyone. Fannie completed her first curved tunnel and her first down on a table. Man, that dog loves tunnels. I’ll have to be careful about impulse control in the future. She had a bit of trouble with the curve, but it was the first time she was trying it. The table? During our last training sessions, I’ve been tugging with her around the table, on the table, on the wobble board. Etc, etc. Now, she jumped on the table on my command, and slowwwwwly went into a down. Her down isn’t very reliable, so I definitely didn’t push by asking her to stay too long. Reward, reward, reward.
