Agility Class: Day One Recap

Soooo...I love my instructor! (can't be because she gives me cookies!) Her name is Brandi Jacques, and she is a world class agility competitor! Check out her blog!

There are mostly small dogs in my class...a really cool French Bulldog, Mini Poodle, Brittany Spaniel and one big dog...a Standard Poodle!

I felt bad for him having to go through the tunnel....he barely fit!!

I was pawesome (of course!) on learning the tunnel and the teeter! (it was flat on the ground..so it wasn't scary at all) and we investigated the weaves a bit too!

Brandi said my focus on human mom was top notch! ;o)

I just need to settle down and wait my turn a bit better...I was a bit barky to some of the other dogs...and whined when I couldn't go in the tunnel. :o/

All in all , a great start! My homework is to practice my heeling, and to learn hand touch...which my human mom was already teaching me!! I'm ahead of the game!

That sounds great! How exciting! Don't you just love agility? My favorite parts are the tunnels and jumps.

Way to go Simba!!! You are the perfect breed for agility (well, maybe except for that terrier stubborness trait us terriers are "loved" for ...).
Can't wait to read about you in the sports section of the Toronto Star ...!!! By the way, did mommy get some new running shoes??? My daddy blew out a pair of his just struggling to keep up. So happy for you!
Best Tail wags & Hugs, Fritz ^..^
