Fun Agility Weekend

In addition to obedience and tracking last weekend we also competed in a three agility trial. What a fun but exhausting weekend. Whisper earned another QQ-her 12th and fastest time to date in Jumpers-5.72 yds per second.

She enjoys agility as much or more than any other sport we compete in. Her tail never stops moving. Her weavepole entrances are super and I am finally learning to trust her to find and enter correctly as seen in the Standard run.





I think I am also finally learning to handle from a distance. What a blast to send her out to an obstacle, trust she will take it and cut to the next one to be ready when she comes in.





MACH goal:
12 QQs
616 MACH points

The blog started out with Lyric and her litter of puppies. Now it is about all the amazing Aragon dogs - you need to post a picture of you, Helen, and Whisper together on the left of the Home Page just like the litter.

How cool! It's really different to see a greyhound run an agility course. I also follow a blog with a French bulldog who does agility and it looks mighty different when that little guy does it! Great videos!

Just found your blog from a link on Greyt Days and I'm glad I did.

Your dogs are amazing......


Love and licks, Winnie the greyhound

Whisper always looks so happy in these agility videos! It can't be easy running a fast, long-striding dog like that, but you sure do a nice job. Congrats on the QQ!
