Our converted headboard jump! See more photos here.
Here's Chacho learning to walk the high plank.
Susie is a star who loves agility, even the sit at the end. We can easily make a platform like this for our home course.
A local shelter brought their adoptable dogs. This handsome boy has many talents.
In a few minutes of practice, he learned the course really well.
So well that he won first place in the time trial, earning some welcome food and a new dog bed for the shelter, and a potential new forever home for himself! Fingers crossed it all works out.
The local search and rescue dog team put on a show, and brought along an adorable puppy!.
Some of our group relaxed for a photo op with a little girl who had a million questions.
I took a gazillion photos of how the ramps and jumps were constructed, and our group made plans to get busy building homemade, inexpensive versions of the equipment. I'll share those photos soon. Here's one idea.
Our practice area is next to a busy street and we can't put up a permanent fence. We have to use leashes all the time, which isn't ideal for hoops and tunnels. This week we're making half a dozen of these poles, and next Saturday the dogs will have freedom to run! I wouldn't suggest leaving a dog alone in here, but with supervision the visual barrier should do the trick.
Thank you for sharing our wonderful, awesome day! Please leave a comment. We'd love to chat.
