That stuff, back there, would be the agility stuff.


OMG. Team Small Dog got to practice. This is not a tall tail. God Bless America! No one was lame. No one freaked out and ran away into the forest. No one flung their body through any jumps. No one leaped off yellow paint. Then I ripped out the caulking in my shower with a sharp thing and no one can take showers at my house. Can I just say it again? God Bless America!

just wanted to say that Otterpop in that photo looks strangely like Gary.

Hmm.

I will let you tell that to Gary to his face, maybe you need to come down and visit!

Yay! Nice to have TSD back at Forest Agility! I always enjoy seeing pictures of the place on your blog!

Did you run the course that was set up? It was from the article in this month's Clean Run where Greg, Rachel and Jane Simons-Moake said how they would run it.

Of course, I thought Greg's way was the best.....

I will have to go back and look for that. I have some unread CleanRuns sitting in the computer. I ran the whole course one time each with everyone, so I will have to see whose way I ran! I ran it a little different with all 3 dogs. We found 2 very nice little drill sequences in there, one with hard pole entries which was the focus of our practicing Monday because of someone who is still working on collecting himself into hard pole entries instead of high speed blasting into any old random pole. And another nice dogwalk sequence for someone that sometimes likes to self release himself off dogwalk if I decide to run fast towards a tunnel!

Yeah, there were several good weave-pole-entry-practice sequences. After running a course a couple of times, I get bored very quickly with it and make up interesting sequences to do instead. That course had a lot of them. That's one of my criteria for picking the courses I set up each week.....

Hey, for weave pole entries, try using two sets of my 2x2 weave poles (four poles total) and place them in front of whatever obstacle you want at whatever angle you want to practice. They are easy to move to make progressively harder entries and "someone" won't get too tired with multiply reps cuz he's only doing four poles. Great for sharpening up those tough entries.
