Echo has been training in agility since she was a youngster. Initally she enjoyed it but last year just as I was getting ready to enter her in a trial she hit a jump-and hit it hard. She cried and was lame for a while. Well that did it in her mind for agility. It would hurt her and was not to be played again. Having learned from her mother Lyric I gave her a long time off of training. She would come to class but only watch. After several months she cautiously would run agility but often would duck out of scary jumps. Slowly over time her willingness increased until by New Years Eve I was ready to try with her.
Three shows three standard legs all with a first place for her NA and three jumpers legs all with a second place for her NAJ.
And best of all she seemed to have fun. It was a good confidence builder for her.
