Agility Training, Rain or Shine


The rainy season has come, but the rains will not be a reason not to go for agility training.


 Train, train, even with the rain, hahah.


We have the training area for ourselves, so we went ahead and proceeded to our "NO-LEASH" training. Great!


Not that easy, even the trainer should be fit, or else he would be getting tired ahead of the dog, LOL.


Weave poles are the hardest for us. One trainer advised us to focus on the long dog walk first then everything else will be easier. Of course the see-saw is a challenge because of the thumping sound when the plank hits the ground.


I guess the easiest to master would be the A-frame then the hurdles then the tire ring (though not that easy at first, and still with leash-on, take note).


The  tunnels are also great challenges because the dog can only hear your voice but cannot see you guiding him, especially the collapsed tunnel.

As I say, "just enjoy the journey", rain or shine.

Practice Makes Perfect

Hahah, we're far from that perfect state, the dogs, I mean.

Agility practice, that's where we are right now. We tried making available agility practice at home, even if just the hurdles and the weave poles for the moment (home-made, mind you).

 

It's good exercise for the dogs and for us as well, heheh. 


This is what I keep in mind, "just enjoy the journey."
