    Default Do Your Dogs Climb? Mine Do

    Here are some pics of Annabelle and Tessa...They love to climb on our walks by the Murray and Lake Hume. Both love agility And always choose to do it on most of our walks where the opportunity is to climb. They started low, but have got quite high now......

    Pulled these pic, because someone said newfies are awkward, so I emailed them these pictures of Annabelle





    Annabelle climbing (with Tessa and Mike)

    Here are some more of them climbing, but not entries






    Annabelle being quite adventurous




    Just to show you how high one of the previous pics was


    This is the highest Tessa goes

    Very cool newfsie.
    You come across to me as an exceptional pet owner. Your dogs are very lucky to have a owner like you.

    Cool pics!

    I once saw a JRT I used to walk climb a huge conifer type tree. She just climbed straight up from branch to branch close to the trunk. She got up to about 2 meters off the ground before I told her to get back down.

    I started teaching my dogs hind awareness, for teaching them to cross a horizontal 3m ladder and one thing led to another. Lukey however is hopeless. He is still in training. Katy is quite good, but I still keep her low, she is a little clumsy and still very young

    I couldnt even see Nero climbimg out of bed let alone a tree
    Actullay i had to raise front fence because he would climb it, (not jump ).
    One of my previous Blue heelers was a master at climbing fences, he was the ultimate escape artist. Logs and stuff etc.. were a walk in the park.
    One of the shows i watched recently may have been one of the vet shows. showed a JRT that basically climbed various things in the backyard to make its way to the roof before escaping.

    my dog loves anything up high.

    I did laugh the first time she attempted a very steep (vertical) sand dune. Came rolling back upside down...

    It is very hard to get her to do a start line STAY (what kind of STAY is that???) in front of the dog walk (high narrow plank part of agility course). She will seek that out, and the scramble and declares the new low table height really not worth the effort...

    And a discussion this morning...with Frosty sitting on a chair next to the chief cookie dispenser Graham at oval... "Are you going to come for a walk or stay here and lick crumbs off Graham?" She likes licking his ears too.
