Agility fun

Postby KatrinH » Mon Jul 28, 2014 9:52 pm

After last weeks training being rather frustrating and bad due sickness and ranger taking advantage, Ranger and I had the best agility class yet tonight. First time he got to go all the way over the a frame and the dog walk. Gosh I wish someone would've been there with a camera. His facial express ion was full of pure excitement, joy, and eagerness. But best of all he was super focused, not only all class, but especially after going all the way over, I never saw him watch me so intensively. He was also super calm all class! I am so happy and proud right now! I can't stop grinning either now he put himself to bed before I was even getting ready lol seems to be tiring oh happy day!!!

Sounds fantastic. I love agility and seeing dogs' joy at learning something new. I wonder if his diet is affecting his behavior as well. You mentioned him being calm. I know some dogs (and kids) react differently based on their diet.

Amanda, he was on the rice and chicken last week already and he was a pain in the butt haha. I think it was just a good lesson, I was focused and present and we were only 3 dogs total which really helped (less waiting).
