Enthusiastic for Agility!


We recently competed at an AKC agility trial in the Atlanta area, and Rocco was raring to go! You can see his awesome speedy self in the video below!

We had only one small bobble, at the start of the weave poles, and that's all it took to keep us from earning a qualifying run. After looking at the video I can see how it was probably my fault! I pushed too far left and Rocco followed. What an awesome pup!

Videotaping agility runs is such an awesome training tool, since in the heat of the run, it's often hard to figure out -- or remember -- what you did!

We're heading back out for an agility trial this Sunday, after attending BarkWorld Expo. Hope to see some of you there!




The fun and games continue every Friday with FitDog Friday, the weekly Blog Hop brought to you by To Dog With LoveSlimDoggy and My GBGV Life to promote a healthy active lifestyle for pets (and their people, too!). Join in every Friday by linking up your FitDog story or visiting the blogs in the hop.

  2. One little mistake by either teammate and it can easily cost a title. We watch videos of our nose work a lot as you can learn so much. When you are actually working you can't really see all that you are doing. Good luck!

  4. Great to see you in NYC, sorry to miss BarkWorld this year. Good luck in the next trial. You both look awesome to us. Wish Kilo could do more agility but he still gets too distracted/reactive - I love watching videos of it too. We'll keep working on it. XS
