agility class

Brought Chewy to an agility class last night and he had lots of fun meeting a bunch of other dogs.



Here he is with sweet Sid.

Oreo had a good class.  I brought him to a beyond beginners class, which is a bit below him, but it was a great experience.

He had to do all the activities with other people/dogs in the ring.  We practiced rally moves in between turns too.  He did really well.

Cute! Watched with the sound off because Katie's here and she's a jealous princess. But I thought it was funny when Sid drank and then Chewy drank. He watches everything doesn't he!

Glad Oreo had a good class. Is he still feeling more confident? Do you think Chewy is making him feel this way? Or is he just getting more experienced?

Dawn,
Oreo has gained alot of confidence at our agility place. I don't think Chewy has much to do with that.

Where Chewy has made a difference is in our yard when my neighbor's kids are outside. Oreo is choosing to stay outside with us, instead of running in the house. I give him lots of treats when he does that.


I brought them to a new park last week though, and Oreo went into a complete panic. So, we still have lots of things to work on. Unfortunately, Chewy hasn't "cured" Oreo!

So glad to know that Oreo had a good class, he is more confident nowadays and he was willing to stay in the yard with you all. However, it could be because it's a new park which he isn't familiar with so he went into a panic the other day. With your patience and love, I'm sure he will be more and more confident when he's with strangers.

Chewy is cute!!!

Chewy looks like he's ready to join in. Glad Orea is doing better.

Cool opportunity to have Oreo in a class beneath his agilities so you can work on the "other stuff". Sounds like he did great.
Chewy is the cutest! WHen Oreo gets scared does Chewy pick up on it and get worried? Cool Chewy has helped Oreo not worry about the neighbor kids as much, that is really neat-yea Chewy.

Chewy doesn't seem to pick up on Oreo's anxiety, but I am going to start leaving Oreo home if I feel he won't be able to tolerate a new socialization place for Chewy

Oreo my man, you're going to miss out on some great places if you don't just trust your Mom!

I can finally comment on blogs again! So it is great that Chewy does so well in new places and has such confidence. I hope that confidence continues to rub off on Oreo in new places so that he can go every where you and Chewy go!

Chewy is such a little social cutie! I adore both photos and videos of him, he's just too cute :)
