It's great to see all the dogs making real progress and it's not always the agility achievements that make us smile. Badger is a lovely Springer Spaniel who has fantastic drive and would sell his soul for his beloved ball, but he can be worried by strangers and other dogs. He's been coming to class for a few weeks now, he's now looking more relaxed and is comfortable working round all the other dogs. He's accepting treats off both myself and Ann now, and even managed to give Ann a sneaky snog as he came down the A frame.
As the afternoons are getting lighter we managed to have a bit more time to train our own dogs. Ann had set up a tricky opening sequence from a larger course, well done Glen who was the only dog to get round it first attempt. Our grade 7 dogs did us proud by all disappearing in the tunnel when they shouldn't and I don't think Rufus fully had his mind on the job as he was more interested in seeing off the local feral cat population.
