Agility



Last night we went to our first class of agility. Agility is a competition for dogs where the dog jumps over jumps, goes through tunnels and weaves through poles. It was just the first class but we went over a jump, through a tunnel, jumped up and stopped on a table and weaved through two poles. The man said that he was there to teach the humans. I must say that my humans are very intelligent and picked it up quickly so we completed them all no trouble. It was great to see lots of dogs there. I saw the more experienced dogs running with speed through all the obstacles. I really wanted to just run up and join them.

This photo isn't from agility but is a suitably active one.

Life is great when you have intelligent humans.

You figured out the weave poles? I still don't get them, but I am loving the A-frame and jumps. The teeter totter is hard too and I don't get much practice on it yet because I got held back in beginner agility. I am trying to learn faster.
