A Night of Practice

A bunch of us got together tonight for some Scenthurdle practice, then some Obedience practice after. 
I was VERY proud of Kort. We were in the local park with alot of distractions.  Kort's heeling was very good, a few moments of loss of concentration, but pretty good otherwise.
His retrieve over the high jump was awesome, after the first bobble that is.  He went out directly, picked up the bell, jumped back over, then dropped the bell at my feet & jumped back over the jump to smell an interesting spot he had noticed the first time over, goof ball!....  after that he was perfect everytime!
His broad jump was perfect everytime as well.  By perfect I mean he jumped it everytime.  He needs work on cutting the end of the jump, Amanda is going to help me with that, it makes him swing out too far & sit crooked in front because of it.  I am feeling very good about how well Kort is working for me.  I am so looking forward to getting back in the ring for a trial.

                                                     Is it my turn yet ?
Ready ??

Good Job!!
Good Heeling!

Thanks for the pictures Amanda!

I used so many different things to make my first collie (& probably all of them) to go out straight on the broad jump. Little garden fences, the 2" board from the high jump sticking out, throwing food or a toy out for them to go straight. Sounds like he's just doing great! Open was by far my favorite class, wasn't too easy, wasn't too hard but had everything in it to be super duper fun!! Good luck and love the crate pic too!!! Adorable!!

These are great pictures! I love the one of him peeking out of his crate!

I was wondering if I could ask for some advice. I'm having trouble finding a layout I like for my blog. I like the way you have yours set up, with a picture at the top. Can you tell me which template you used, or how you do this? Thanks!
