My original plan was to do an agility training session with the piano keys today. Since I’m working this weekend, why not give myself this little treat? Wrong! When I woke up this morning, I consulted Environment Canada’s website, and according to them, it was -20 Celsius. Needless to say I decided to stay at home. The agility venue is a 1.5 hour drive from my house, and I really, really didn’t want to risk taking the road in this kind of weather.
I tried to discipline myself in cleaning the house, but my coffee tasted so good, and my book was so interesting, I only dragged myself off the sofa around 11:00 am.
After doing some housework, I did some bit of fun training with Jasmine and Fannie. Today, we worked on the handstand and the skateboard.
Jasmine: Her video is too funny. In one of her attempts, she’s holding on to the wall with only one paw, while the other is waving in the air. I couldn’t help giggling during the session. Her skateboard skills are improving by leaps and bounds! I can now give the board a little push, and she’ll stay on it.
Fannie: Oh dear. I really am doing it all wrong with her. She’s so fast in offering behaviours, that I’m not rewarding the right ones, and she’s doing a cart-wheel. I might stop uploading videos from her sessions as we’re not showing any changes.
The funniest moment is when Fannie, frustrated by me not rewarding her, blames the wall and scratches it to show her discontent. Fannie doesn’t suffer fools lightly.
At the end of the day, I gave them an off-leash walk. On our return, they both snuggled in and slept all evening.
