Go Ike, Go

Ike and I had agility class last night. He was great. Kathleen took some video of our last run of the night. You will see us struggle with a rear cross after the A-frame (and the yellow tunnel). First run of the night I didn't let him get ahead of me. 2nd run we did the actual cross so I stopped to reward. I think the rest of the runs were a lot like the video - me crowding him and not letting him get ahead of me. Argh. We will get there. We are practicing at home and he is definitely moving with a lot more drive, so I think it will come

Ike's dogwalk is really looking awesome. K commented that he accelerating once he is on it. Hooray, Ike.

Additionally, the young Aussie with the young male owner have joined our class and Ike has been minimally reactive to him (the guy not the dog). Again, hooray!

Ike seems to be really enjoying himself, which makes me VERY happy!!

You both looked great and how nice to see my old stomping ground :) I miss training there.

Looks like a good practice, Julie!

Hmm, that looked like a challenging sequence-the rear cross to an obstacle discrimination requiring an out to get the tunnel.

Glad to see Ike having fun! I had class with Spot last night and he was a crazy man! We worked on him driving ahead of me on a line of jumps and I think he did well.
