Lots of Changes

Puppies are growing up and leaving for there new homes. There is still one puppy available if you know of someone looking for a new addition to there home. Would make a great obedience or agility candidate.  Dharma is still working on getting her CD title in obedience while the long recovery from her agility injury is still happening. Dharma was recently released to increase some activity so she has started her flyball training. We are going to do a agility trial in the first part of Dec to evaluate her muscle tone and the will hopefully be able to start working at getting those Double Qs and Mach Points soon. Kizzie is healed and starting to learn agility and a little flyball. Trying to sit down and figure out next years goals and plans for the TTs so hopefully more updates soon to come.

Once I graduate (in about 3 weeks) I will be hoping to start back up the 5 minute training challenge blog.



8/15/2010 5 minute Training Challenge

Today’s 5 minute training challenge is agility related(so to those that do not have a tunnel)

Distance Tunnel work

Beginner-Since you may or may not have done the tunnel before my challenge for you is to get your dog running through the tunnel as fast as possible, with only one command.

Advanced. Try to see how far away from the tunnel you can be and send your dog through the tunnel. Start up close and condition them to go through to a fun reward as you slowly step back.

Well, I will be honest I worked all my dogs at the same time on this do to the heat and a headache, but Dharma and Kizzie both got comfortable for the tunnel at 6 feet away. Pippin and Keon and friend Pallo also all had fun running through the tunnels and pretty much the reward at the end for each of them was to chase each other around yard.
