Agility - Round 2

Last night Zack and I started his next set of agility classes. The first set of classes we took earlier this summer was to cover the basics and ground work. This set of classes we are starting to learn the equipment, more handling, etc. As we have given Rally obedience a break for a while (since our success at the trial) I thought this would be a fun thing for us to do through the rest of the summer.

It was a great class and got to meet some new dogs who were not in our previous class. There was an adorable little jack russell who I could have just taken home. Zack would have been in heaven with her about:)

I felt Zack did pretty good last night. His jumps were good and he had no nerves going up the teeter that was being held firm by our instructor Kim. Zack just ran up to the high end of the teeter and gave her a faceful of kisses LOL!! He was so darn cute.

Zack did lack a bit of concentration when we were running circles both left and right - his concentration sometimes is short when there are lots of smells about in the long grass - he tends to wander off on me and I can't get his attention. Even treats and a new toy couldn't bring him back last night. I will have to practice and figure out what will work. He's probably waiting for filet mignon or smoked salmon for his treat or something. Smart dog and little bugger ahahaha LOL!!
