Agility Rules!

For the last 12 weeks we have been taking dog agility classes through Who’s Walking Who.  What the heck is dog agility you ask?!  It is basically the ultimate in canine sports…and quite a workout for me, I might add!   While each dog must come into agility classes with basic sit-stay knowledge, it is truly amazing watching the development of your dog in a 12 week period.  Timmy’s sit-stays have improved, as have his downs, heeling and overall confidence.   As many of you know, Timmy can be a little bit of a scaredy-dog, and has earned the nickname Skitters – for always skittering away when he’s nervous.   12 weeks ago it was difficult to picture him running through tunnels, through a blind shoot, and walking over a teeter totter, but today he is doing all of those things and more with a sense of excitement, confidence and eagerness I never imagined possible.

Last night we graduated from Level 2 Agility, and I couldn’t be happier.  Here is a few pictures from the night:
