Ike's Class

I have been really busy lately and my blog has been suffering. Last week Ike's agility class was inside due to rain and thunderstorms. We were definitely off. The course felt like there was flow while walking it and then when we ran it we were VERY choppy.

Last night's class was outside and Ike ran like a dream. He was obviously enjoying himself a lot and we were very in tune. During the last run of the night Kathleen had me do a rear cross that worked out surprisingly well. I think Ike is becoming more confident about moving ahead of me and is moving faster in general.

The only difference I can think of other than the footing (mat vs grass) is that the last two times we have been inside it has been slightly stuffy/hot.

I have really been slacking with my training because of how busy work and home have been. I need to get on the ball!

I'm glad you had a happy Ike. Being able to rear cross is always a good sign of confidence.

It's okay - my blogging has been taking a hit, too. I've been so busy, and the next two weeks are going to be equally busy.

Glad you had a nice class with Ike. It always feels extra good having a good class after a sloppy one, right?
