OK, not a real trick this week. We've been very busy, between camp, RP, and out of town visitors, not much trick time.
I'm still steaming a bit about the jump grid fiasco at camp. I've made a pact with Oreo not to let him down like that again.
I decided to try some of the exercises in the yard. I think he did them successfully. We'll continue to work on them, and gradually raise the bars to full height. The only one I didn't set up was turning through three jumps. I'll post a video later in the week to show you that one.
Even in the yard, my dog doesn't have a solid stay, especially when a target is involved! I had to put the target down at the last second. Even so, Oreo often got to the target before I had a chance to load it. But Oreo had a blast, and that is all I care about.
Sorry about the angry music, but it fit my mood. Plus, Oreo and I like to jam to this song in the car on the way to agility. It seemed to fit the events related to the video. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=R0Sbs7tsCAk
I put each pass in slo-mo, after the regular view. We are supposed to be looking for the "bounce". I thought Oreo was getting it, but I welcome opinions/advice of others! I am no expert.
Sadly, the slo-mo video is even faster than his real time at camp. Poor dog.
