The Agility Season Has Commenced

Sorry it's been so long since I updated my blog - where does the time go???

Obviously the puppies have all now flown the nest and are happily settled in their new homes and all their new families seem very happy with them....phew lol

Keeva and Kruze are like sponges, absorbing everything that's thrown their way.  They are proving to be like their mom, in that they are very easy to far!!  They've been to two weekend shows and have been brilliant.

Keeva is showing to be more dominant than Kruze, however, and is barking at other dogs and sometimes people whilst out on walks.  So this is something I'll be working on.  Yes, I want a crazy, feisty puppy, but I don't want an unsociable one!

The agility season so far has been fantastic, with Darren and I winning the TAG heat of the Laser Pairs and qualifying for the final.  Darren has also had another grade 6 win, this time in agility, leaving him just one more agility to go grade 7.  Chase and Rio have had numerous top 5 places already - Rio getting a 2nd and a 3rd in grade 6 agility classes.

At Vyne show on the recent bank holiday Monday, I decided to just relax with Chase rather than being all nervy and worked up on the start line....will she get her wait, will she get the contacts?  I decided what will be will be.  I know she gets them in training, so I decided that it was time I just chilled.  I wound her into a frenzy on the start line but when it came to waiting she did it with ease and then her contacts, especially her A-frame, were spot on.  She did have an issue with the see-saw in both agility classes (one she flew, the other she ran past) but I'm not worried about it.  So, from now on, this is how I'm going to run her and see where it takes us.

After all, agility is fun!
