Nova had a friend over for playtime today! Her name is Lily and she is about 6 years old and is a Sheltie / BC mix. They took a little bit of time to get used to each other and didn’t play as much as we were hoping, but they got a couple of games of chase in.
This past Friday, we took Nova to a new agility class and had a great time! Since it was at a new location, we didn’t have very high hopes for Nova so we set the bar low for what we would consider a success. Nova did better than we could ever expect. She only ran away once, but she was very confused about what was being asked and she was caught quickly by another trainer.
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!
I was hoping to get the sun a bit higher, but I was a few minutes late.
Nova knows a “dance” command that means get on your hind legs and move around.
