Agility Training With Breeze

Most of the agility posts show the dog trained and competing. But years of work go into the performance. Breeze has been doing little baby lessons in agility. I have a hard time training on my own and she isn't advanced enough to officially enter a class. When I have the time I can take a private lesson with my trainer.

I think Breeze has a lot of potential-she enjoys the training and never wants to stop. She is fast and agile. She reminds me alot of Whisper when she was a youngster. One of the biggest problems I have is trying to get to work a distance from me, she always wants to come into me.

Below is one of our private lesson which we worked on getting her to work away and ahead of me. What isn't visible on the video is the toy throw at the end of the jump so she continues forward rather than come into me.

She looks great. We've been working on distance using the toy throw too. I'm in a class that's working on distance. Have you ever used a Manners Minder? I am thinking about trying one to get Astro to go ahead on the dogwalk, a-frame, and maybe weaves. Your agility field is so nice. I wish our club's field could have grass.
