So after putting it off for months (I'm shy ), I took Carl to his first agility lesson today! I've been meaning to join the local obedience club for ages but it's one of those things it takes forever to get around to.
ANYWAY! He was such a good boy, he went above and beyond my expectations! He breezed over the dog walk like it was grass, cleared all the fences, went through both a normal tunnel and a flat tunnel with the fabric hanging off the end! And to finish it off, he did some awesome sequences incorporating all those things. For a dog who is generally terrified around strange people/situations, he was mostly calm and super responsive! I think getting him out there in the last few months has helped.
To top it off, I let him off lead quickly for him to have a whizz, and he climbed to the top of the A-frame when I wasn't looking! He's a bit of an overachiever!
Sorry, had to have a brag. I'm so proud of my little abuse case!
