Default Update, Lucy's 3rd class

We did the A-frame (set low, then raised) They did not seem to have any problem with it at all. We just did the chute three times, once holding the end open, once dropping it when they were halfway, and they were running through the chute, no problems. We also did the Tire a few times.

Lucy really does the 2o2o on the teeter, and A-frame really well. (The reason I say we is that my sister has Liza, Lucy's sister in the class too) We practiced with the tunnel with just a slight bend in it as they are not completely comfortable with it yet.

There had been horses in the arena so had quite a time keeping Lucy's nose off the ground and getting her to focus. Luckily when she sees the dog ahead going through the tunnel or over the teeter, she bounces around and wants to do it too. We run both dogs off leash on most of the equipment.

We have three more classes and have already signed up for the next course at the beginning of the year.

One more Saturday of Agility classes and we will be off till January 5th. We have done all the equipment now. We are just running the channel on the weaves until Lucy and Liza are over a year on Feb. 2nd.

When Lucy sees a dog doing the equipment ahead of her, she is pulling on the leash to do it too. I don't know how the 2o2o is going to work on the teeter as a few times her back legs were going up with the teeter after she had run over it, guess she did not have enough weight on her back legs to hold it down. Didn't seem to bother her at all and she would go back and do it again.

I ran out of the tripe treats so changed to my homemade tuna treats and I think she actually liked them better. She likes weiners the best but it gets a little expensive as weiners are around $4.00 a package of eight and even if you cut them up really small, they do not last long. May get a package of them for next week with it being our last time for a while.

I'm glad you are having fun!!! A bit of advice, use low salt hot dogs. They are a bit better for your dog. Asher loves home-made salmon crack treats. It's called "crack" because it's crack for dogs. The recipe is one large can of salmon (not a can like the small tuna cans, but a can the size of a Campbells soup can). Two eggs. Mix. Add flour till dough is like cookie dough. Spread out on a sprayed cookie sheet. Use flour to keep dough off of your fingers. Cook till done - usually about 25 minutes on 350 in my oven.

This is Asher's favorite treat, and he only gets it at dog shows where I need focus. He's learned that if the salmon crack is out that the game is on, and he gives me his best performances.

Agility9trainer, sounds like the same recipe I use for my tuna treats, will have to try it with salmon. I have seen those bigger cans and will get some, thanks. I usually get the turkey or chicken franks as they are lower calories or low fat but never thought of checking the salt content.
