Last night was fun. I arrived a little early so took Thea into the empty back hall and did some dogs walks and aframes with her. We worked through the chute too but she needed quite a bit of support for that. Did our end of teeter excerice as well. She was excellent – happily lying on it as I gently moved it around. We then went and watched a class running it’s courses. Good for her to be around dogs doing agility; even if it has to be in the safely of my arms.
Brody did the warm up stuff – he was fine – though taking weird angles to get on the teeter if I sent him to it. He rocked his courses though. ROCKED them in fact – he is pretty cute when he is flying.
Sally was pretty over the top to be working there. I need to discipline myself to take her over and NOT do agility I guess but what fun would that be?
At one point she went wide on a front cross and ended up backjumping towards me. She immediately knew that wasn’t what I wanted so started doing her own one jump working hoping I’d say “yes” and carry on with her. I was TOTALLY frozen in place just waiting her out. She did the jump (back and forth and forth and back) at LEAST 14 times. Finally she dropped to place – I rewarded her by moving fast to do the jump, the weaves, a tunnel. She was THRILLED.
I got home way too late – and fell into bed with happy visions of agility dancing in my head to weave into the fabric of my dreams … happy dreams indeed.
14 times at LEAST? Oh, Sally — too funny. What a hard working girl! 😀
