Practicing with my new weaves and targets!

Yesterday we went out in the backyard to do some practicing - mom was going to just have me race her to the target and then add one obstacle - but she got overambitious! At the beginning of the video, I am racing mom to a target plate at the end of the weaves. Then we practiced a sequence from last week's class - tire, jump, table. At first we tried a backy uppy move (I think) and then a front cross. The backy uppy maybe got me to wrap the jump tighter but the front cross seemed to make me faster? Then at the end, we put both parts together. Notice I weave faster with the target! But we're happy with my speed through the weaves with the bases!

Going to class tomorrow - it's the first session of a new level - we're excited to see what we learn next!

Gotta zoom!


PS. I just saw that this is my 300th post! Wow!

your new weave poles are nice! I'm jealous! Loved the music...seemed like we were watching ballet agility. Hey, maybe that could be a new sport!

I think you guys looked great! Your mom looks like she is getting very comfortable with her new handling techniques.

Very cool weaves! You look awesome.

Thanks so much for the positive comment about Layla. It really helps hearing that I'm not the only one who's centered my life around my dog!

Hey Ricky,
you look like you are having a lot of fun out there and I love the music. When my Mom executes a Backy uppy, I also throw in the collection and make sure I turn tight over that bar. Backy uppy's are serious business!

So I overheard my Mom talking to Dad and they said I was going to get a new Sheltie brother in about 6 weeks. I really hope he's as smart and talented as you!

And congratulations on 300 fun and educational posts!

CONGRATS on your 300th post! That is VERY cool!
You guys were speed Ricky racers out there, looks like you did some awesome speed work!
I love hearing about what you learn at your classes so if you are going to a new level, we are all sort of going to a new level and I for one can not wait to see what you (we) are going to learn, LOL!
