Go Austin!

Melanie and Austin are competing at the AKC Agility Nationals this weekend. They seem to be doing great and switched from 26 to 24" jumps if you want to check the results for Friday and Saturday.

Melanie is our Agility Instructor and she understands how to train a hunting dog to excel in Agility.

Go Austin!!!

We are working on Polo's Agility motivation and he is doing great. Everyone is amazed in our agility class at his progress and he seems to be having a great time! His AKC jump card arrived today.

Good luck Rocket on your Agility lessons. Polo and Rudy can always help if your handler has problems. Remember steak is the prime motivator (medium rare, seared stew meat).

We are practicing running the a-frame and dog walk. Rudy needs to touch the yellow contact zone at the end of the obstacle and not jump off. The best way to make sure he hits the contact zone is to have him down at the end of the ramp. Not an easy thing to teach, Rudy would rather skip the bottom and leap from half-way up the ramp. He loves to run!

Garden & Gun

Polo and Rudy each want to be the Prince and the Pea like the following pup in a Garden & Gun advertisement. We get all sorts of interesting magazines.

We are still trying to finish off our first bathroom remodel. The boys think we are boring and do not understand why they cannot help with the painting.

Getting Ready to Trial

Rudy received his official AKC Agility Height card and Polo's may be lost in the mail. We have moved up to the advanced sequences agility class and the first class gave the handlers quite a challenge (especially Rudy's handler, aka Dad). Front crossing a speedy Rudy can be difficult, and if you are not there on time, all you see is Rudy flying past.
