Tonight I went to Kort's agility class...I wasn't going too, I find it weird to be around alot of people right now, I'm not "quite" my strange weird self! :)) I decided I would go, I had a great day today & I knew Kort would love getting out.
I am so glad I went! Kort was awesome, at first he was a bit distracted, I guess it's been awhile since he's had to focus.
The class started with some obstacle discrimination, a jump to a tunnel, my job was to make sure Kort took the tunnel & not the dogwalk....he did quite well after a few bobbles :)), then it was the jump to the dogwalk, Kort found this more difficult, he wasn't quite seeing the dogwalk...but again after a few bobbles he did great....his contact at the end of the dog walk is awesome!, he stopped himself each time , 2 on 2 off, yippee! We then had to take the tire jump, for some reason he chooses to walk along side it, rather then jump....hmmm?
I was able to send him through the chute once while Deb held the end open for him. You may recall at the last agility match there was no way Kort was going through the chute :))
The next half of the class was fun fun!! It was a speed circle of 14 jumps, one being a spread jump, & one tunnel, we had to put in a front cross to get into the tunnel, but the rest was just running & jumping! Kort has never liked to jump, from day one, however with Sarah's help tonight he was really moving...she had me carry my whole bag of cheese while running, at the end I would throw the bag over the last jump & Kort would get a big cheesy reward :))
I could not believe how well Kort did jumping tonight, in the match a few weeks back he would take 2 jumps then run into me, tonight he looked forward, took direction & ROCKED IT!!!!
Kort is entered in his first agility trial at the end of August, after tonight I am feeling much more confident !
Here is a totally unrelated picture that Amanda sent me & I just crack up looking at it...you have to know Wicca, Amanda's dog, to really see the humour in this picture....let's just say that Wicca is one Alpha girl & nobody touches her unless Wicca wants to be touched, no one that wants to live anyway :)) Apparently Kort has a death wish !
