Experiences of a late-comer to the agility competition scene -- our training, trials, life-style changes/challenges, RV adventures, and observations on the sport, the people, and dogs involved in it. Begun July 17, 2010.
Jump training with Lucky is easy because she loves to retrieve. Throw the ball, she brings it back. Throw it over the 2 foot high garden fence, she puts 2 jumps in for every throw (there and back), and she will keep this up until your arm is worn out. We limit her to 20 jumps a day a few times per week, and figure we could keep her in shape for years even if we were crippled in a wheel chair! I finally got a video of this activity, and using slow motion, you can really see her powerful physique in motion. It's amazing how much effort goes into a dog jumping obstacles.
Now if only I can transfer her enthusiasm for this game onto the agility course!
