We went to our second private agility lesson yesturday. It went great. We worked on getting Kallie to love the tunnel which wasn't hard at all. She learned quickly that I was at the other end with treats- typical cattle dog. Then we worked on the teeter with just the noise the other end was supported with a chair so she didn't get hurt. Again, Kallie was jumping up on it to hear that bang right away.
We also worked on some Stays and Recalls in the facility because it's a huge space that is safe,secure and a great place to train. She did so good, only broke her stay ONE time in all the times we worked on it which was a good 10-15times.
Our agility trainer also happens to do DiscDog with her Cattle Dog and I want to also get into the sport. She showed us how to do "rollers" with Kallie and she loved it. We took our disc skills home and were working on it in the basement and outside off and on all afternoon. She was one happy and worn out cattle dog.
All in all I think our training at the center and at home went really well. Not bad for a 4month old puppy.
