I am now running a Beginners Flyball training during the week on Thursdays at 6pm, we start on the 12th & carry on every week.. this is for all of those who cannot make it to Saturday's sessions, but if you do already come to Sat sessions and would like an extra one then there's no reason why you couldn't come along to Thursdays as well... all are welcome to either or both sessions..
Another good weekend..
2nd Flyball session went well (apart from the massive rain "shower" halfway through..)
Flyball is going well considering that this was only the second week, we know that all the dogs can hurdle and they love to catch tennis balls.. now we just have to link the two together... and a bit of retrieve training is in order :-)
We had a newcomer this week.. the lovely Poppy (Sprocker), I've known her since she was a young pup - although she was a bit bemused by it to start off with she started to get the hang of it - she has only done a tiny amount of agility recently but she will do anything for a tennis ball so I have high hopes for her :-)
Jasper very much impressed everyone with his weaves at agility practice today & I'm happy to say that his recall is getting better. Red was a little star again - her dogwalk contacts are coming on a treat.. and again, her recall was great.. it just goes to show that a short amount of time in a group training environment pays dividends as far as obedience levels go..
Top of the Class this week has to go to Patches at Flyball.. not only did she hurdle the whole lane, trigger the box, retrieve the ball & go back down the lane with the ball... she decided that jumping the hurdles was so much fun that she would do the second lane as well :-)
Hi all, My first attempt at blogging.. I've got no idea what I'm doing so any help would be very much appreciated... But if I just tell you all how good this weekend's training has gone would be a good start..
1st Flyball session went really well - Patches was an absolute star over the hurdles but slightly lost the plot when she reached the flyball box & jumped over it to smother me in doggy licks ?-)
Beginners Agility was good today - a couple of new dogs and owners came, we had the new toy.. a 12' flat tunnel, we started the training slowly & carefully but within about 3 minutes Red & Jasper were absolutely storming through it :-) So a big thumbs up there!!
