We had out fourth agility class on Sunday. I’m so proud of Una, she is getting braver every time 🙂 The air conditioning causes some alarm, still. But she can perform the fun exercises after listening to the machine starting for a few seconds.
Una is so into the exercises! As you’ll see in the videos I shot on Sunday, she cannot wait to be released towards the beloved treat plate with delicious bits of boiled liver being delivered by the assisting person! Notice the high tail and dancing gait when I walk her 🙂 So unlike the usual, serious and worried Una.
Apart from the agility itself, we trained going into and staying in her new crate. The hall, with all the activity, is still too worrying for Una to actually stay in her crate, yet. So, I C-T for lying calmly in the crate with the door open. I gradually take more and more steps back before clicking and going to Una to give her a treat between her front legs (so she stays lying down).
For next time, we have to bring a target for training the stops on the contact surfaces.
