A-Frames, chutes, and more

First real agility lesson

Fannie had her first real lesson yesterday morning at GC.   What fun!  Our lesson included tunnels, rear-end awareness stuff (ladder and ladder-style), the bang-game, plank work, and chute.

What we learned:

  • We’re still weary of dark tunnels;
  • We also rock at tunnels;
  • We’re not afraid of walking across a stable teeter anymore;
  • We love the bang game, but we’re still a wee bit cautious about the sound;
  • The chute is still scary, but we’ll get better;
  • We love to show-off and do the table, even if it’s 22 inches high.

All in all, a great lesson.  Too bad we won’t be able to attend the same class every week.  This group is awesome!


Jasmine had to wait her turn in the car.  Unfortunately, I totally didn’t think (what a surprise, not!) about the absence of leaves in the trees, still being early Spring and all.  Even with a full water bowl, she was panting like crazy in the back window, her favorite spot, and probably the warmest area in the car.  I truly, truly, will find more shade next time and buy one of those shiny panels to keep the heat out.  Bad, bad Lyne.


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.
