Well, my third agility class has come and gone...and I realize that it's kind of sad that we only have two more before the end of the series! :-/
I've been really enjoying hanging out with my new friends, learning lots of new things, and running through the courses!
This was our set up this evening! You see that hoop/hurdle looking thing...well, that was our new station!
To begin with, we warmed up by jumping a few hurdles and then landed on the table. After doing this twice, we moved over to the new hoop and just hung out with it (meaning that we started slow). Once everyone successfully hopped through it, Miss Rachel added it to the line up. Unfortunately, lots of us pups decided that the hoop was a bit weird and instead of going through it, almost all of us went around instead. Hehehe! It took me a couple of attempts and lots of treats before I was running through it too!
We are always off leash now when doing the course and we are almost always perfectly well behaved, but during this photo the standard poodle, Hess, decided to go absolutely insane. It was hilarious! She not only completely ignored the course and the treats, but she also ignored her Mom, Dad, and Miss Rachel! Instead, she chose to eventually run over to one of our other classmates and start a snuffle...hehehe! Eventually she was caught though and the fun stopped! Boo!
I was totally behaving well when we had to wait! ;-) Just look at that sit-stay! Oooo Ooo Ooo, way in the back of this photo is Miss Millie, aka Murphy's doppelganger!! I know, you probably can't see her too much!
We finished class by introducing the tunnel! Apparently lots of dogs get scared of the tunnel because they don't like the floor texture or the large dogs don't like the tunnel touching their backs or it's too dark for them. But I'm happy to report that all of us had positive experiences with it (me especially, Miss Rachel thinks it's because I'm a terrier and aren't scared of anything...hehehe, Domeek thought that I would be terrified too though)! Next week, we are going to be opening it all the way and adding it to the course! Exciting times!
After class we went to PetsMart to buy num nums! Weeeeeee...that's how I roll! ;-)
Alright everyone, I'm exhausted after class...so it's off to bed for me! Oh, please meet Mr. Octopus, he's my newest toy care of BarkBox! ;-)
Have a great Monday everyone!!
