Loralie taught the 2nd session of Intro To Agility at 9 a.m. this Saturday morning, and I more or less assisted. She didn't have me do much, but I watched, listened and learned. 2 dogs were missing and while it was only about 85', it was so hot one lady grew faint and had to sit on the grass and apply cool compresses on her face and neck. Actually, it wasnt' all that hot, but very humid. The air was thick. Loralie extended the class from 1 hour to 1.5 hours, because there are 8 dogs enrolled. Class size is usually about 6.
First agility book I ever read, Jane Simmons Moake's Agility Training, The Fun Sport For All Dogs, c 1991, has lesson plans in it for Beginners, Intermediate, and Advanced classes, where 8-10 students are divided into 2 groups of 4-5, and while one group does one set of equipment with one instructor, the next group does the other set with the 2nd instructor, then at half-time the students switch teachers. Nobody stands around for long waiting for their turn. They get their money's worth.
The rest of today, I culled out over 1000 emails, processed some of Maxie's Monroe Trial photos (disk came in yesterday's mail, a whole month after the trial), and tonight Audrey is coming over for dinner and to watch the Joan Baez PBS special, which I found on Netflix and can stream.
