When Oreo and I started to learn agility, I taught him mostly through play with a toy.
He still loves to play agility for toys at home.
I wanted Chewy to learn the same way. Agility should be a game right?
Here is me attempting to get Chewy to chase his ball through a tunnel. I think he thought the tunnel was slowing him down,so he went around it a few times instead. He also sunk his razor teeth into my hand, instead of the ball. Ouch!
Of course, wrestling with Oreo inside the tunnel is more fun than playing with the ball.
Brought Oreo to another beyond beginners agility class last night. He did great.
Chewy did great too. He still loves to greet other dogs. Chewy will be taking a puppy prep class in a couple weeks. There is going to be one at a new site just a mile or so from my house! She will also be teaching various agility classes there. I'm hoping to take the one that focuses on Linda Mecklenberg's jumping foundations. I think Oreo would love that. He loves jumps.
The intructor is the person who taught Oreo's Break out of your Shell seminar. So, she knows Oreo and his "issues".
It is going to be so convienent to have classes so close. I still plan on taking some at the farm though. I want Oreo to stay familiar with the trial site, plus I love my teacher!
