Sports Saturday: Agility Lesson!

This morning we had our first agility lesson in over 3 months.  Between graduation, interviews for graduate school and grown-up jobs, going on short summer trips, and then moving across town, we were never able to squeeze in an agility lesson!  I am so happy that we were able to have a lesson today, as were the boys (we switch dogs each lesson).  Diesel and Bailey did really well, especially for having been off contact obstacles in 3 months.  I was super pleased with Diesel’s weave pole performance as well as his 2-on-2-off contacts on the see-saw and A-frame.  Here are some pictures from today — I think they show how happy the boys were to be playing agility on a nice Saturday morning.  🙂

Bailey LOVES his tunnels!!

"Diesel, HERE walk-it!!" Right after this jump is an obstacle discrimination with the entrances to the tunnel and A-frame next to each other, making it imperative that your dog follow your lead (and that you give accurate, timely directions!).

A nice peak over the A-frame.

  1. Awesome pics! I miss agility.

    What type of camera do you use?

  2. That A-frame looks realy cool! about your comment on my blog. I too have trouble finding her blog, cllicking her avatar never goes to the blog. Heres a direct linik: http://blog.peoplesenseconsulting.com/2011/07/19/how-is-this-for-you/

    I think you and she will hit it off really well. Youve got much in common. And your a dog-whisperer.

  3. Bailey look like he’s having a blast! Love the A-frame photo. Too cute!

  4. Wowzers, the acute angle on the A-frame looks terrifying! Bailey sure has no fear, though—he’s happily jumping over the peak. I think the boys really were eager to get back into agility. Glad to see them having so much fun 😀

  5. Hey Guys,

    That looks like so much fun and look at you jumping over that tall one, very impressive! 🙂

    Your pal Snoopy 🙂

  6. Beautiful pictures! Bailey is actually smiling – that pup LOVES the agility course!

  7. Looks like everyone was having fun! WE haven’t been to an agility class in at least three months … I need to get back there. The fun the dogs have is worth it!

  8. Looks like they had a ball!

  9. Glad to see your back. You must be having some fun too. My bet, the girls won.

  10. Hi Kas,

    Oh, boy! Or maybe I should say, oh dog! Either way, these are great photos that attest to the fact that the dogs are having a terrific time.

    But these photos also put me to shame for not making the effort to enroll my two Shih Tzu boys for agility classes. I know they’d enjoy it but I fear that it might be too hard for me.
