Spring Dogwalk Practice

We set up the dogwalk the other day and got in some fun practice! We're using those clip and go contact hoops to keep me from being tempted to jump off the side of the board (especially when mom moves laterally). I think I am getting faster!




It sure is nice to be able to practice in our own backyard again!

Gotta zoom!

You look so fast! I love how you have some equipment of your own; I'd LOVE to.

I decided I'm going to try one of your previous tricks. I'm going to try to teach Layla to get into the suitcase herself. I just need to find a large enough suitcase!

Wow Ricky! Are you sure your Mom didn't load that video in fast forward? Cause you are FLYING!

Ricky, you doing good on that dog walk however there were a couple of times where you have JUST missed touching the contact especially when you were going really fast. I could be wrong tho. The camera was set far away. When you ran slightly slower, you touched it beautifully! Anyway, good job with it. I can see how much you were enjoying it! Keep it up my friend!

I have a quick question about the suitcase trick - do you have to remove the bars inside the suitcase? Like where the extendable handle is? The smaller suitcases that don't have the bars are too small for Layla, but I think the bars would be too hard for her.

Zoomin zoomin - you go little dude! Isn't it just wonderful to be outside and having fun again.

Woah! Ricky is fast! I see so many still photos of shelties, sometimes I forget just how quickly they can motor. :) I can't wait to start Lola in agility when she's older!

Glad you get to work in your backyard again. You looked great out there on the dogwalk! Keep it up, you are one fast doggie!

Good job Ricky!

Where did you get your agility equipment from? Jeremy is trying to find a contact trainer for Bokeh.
