I hope that you all had an incredible weekend and Saint Patrick's Day!! :-D
Domeek abandoned me this afternoon and went to an Irish pub in San Francisco to celebrate the drinkable holiday! Something about no dogs allowed, I say "pft!" to that though!!! ;-)
It was my last Intermediate agility class today! WooHoo, another one under the belt! We ran through three different courses...one was short, but the other two were pretty darn long and had directional changes!
Domeek and I were able to run through the weave poles again and by the time that class was over, I was actually understanding that they are pretty much like a jump but just placed in a different way! ;-D I was going through from left to right, all by myself!! Oh Yeah!!
So, now we have almost an entire month off before we can start advanced agility! I know, a super duper long time, but we can sign up for "Drop In" agility on Saturdays where there are courses already set up and we can just run through them! So, just in case our memories aren't very good, Domeek and I will do this (at least) a couple of times before advanced starts! :-D
Miss Rachel told us that we need to start thinking about our goals for the coming months though. Our school doesn't have enough space for the really big contact equipment, so if we have plans to do competitions (even if it's just for fun) we need to go to other locations with space! Luckily there are a couple of different schools that are about 45 minutes to an hour away...a little inconvenient, but not a terrible distance, especially on weekends.

One of the schools is called Morgan Hill Dog Sports, this one has a huge outdoor arena for all the agility training and Miss Rachel teaches here too! The other is called Java Dog Training Center in Fremont, they currently have an indoor space in Redwood City but they will be closing this location at the end of the month (boo!).

We still haven't decided what our ultimate goals are...Domeek is debating about the idea of competing since I enjoy the challenges, but we still have a lot to work on before...so we will take Advanced Agility and see what Miss Rachel thinks afterwards! Either way, I think that after the advanced class is over, we will move on to the larger facilities for lots more challenges and fun fun fun!!!
Ok, that's our update for this week! Have a great Monday everyone!! :-D
