Sorry it’s been a while since we’ve posted. So here’s a video from Nova’s class last week. She’s been doing super in this class even the face of huge distractions like other dogs playing agility at the same time! I’m still working on my timing of course, but I think it’s getting better. More practice with collection jumps and approaching the tire from different angles will help.

Here’s a quick video that shows the importance of maintaining eye contact, not with your dog, but with the path and obstacles your dog should be taking. The course diagram and a second video are after the break.
It’s been a while since I posted a video of our agility practice, so here’s some footage from tonight’s class. I’m really proud of her weaves and she stayed pretty focused even when I messed up the handling!
Way back in September, we decided that it was time for Nova to take a little break from agility class. She was too unfocused and really needed to spend time on some basic foundation work, learning to work with me.
This is Nova’s first foundation jumping session. We’re going through Susan Salo’s foundation jumping DVD [Amazon] [Clean Run] and this is the set point exercise. I show Nova doing a variety of heights at both 100% and 25% speed.
