Tangle and I have been working really hard on new skills. Our practice sessions have been intense, I have stumbled more than I have handled perfectly. It has been hard. Is it worth it? Sure it is. But I do have to take some time out like we did today.
I love working individual skills. It relaxes me and it feels like I am training party tricks rather than useful agility skills. My dogs love it when I am relaxed as well :)
I didn't film everything we worked on, but here is a sampling of the work. I worked a reverse spin off the running dog walk with Hoot. A friend and I were talking about turns of a RDW and a reverse spin came to mind. I think it worked really well.
Again, I was chatting with someone regarding proofing weaves. It occurred to me that I had not worked weaves into fences in a while and probably should. So, of course, I had to raise the bar a few more notches and work a discriminations at the same time.
Tangle and Hoot were rock stars!!
