Dog by dog agility update!

 She doesn't do agility but I can't leave her out! Brax is doing ok after being quite poorly while we were on holiday. She has had bloods taken to monitor her kidney falure and her levels weren't bad at all. Her liver values were up a bit but the vet thinks that could be to do with her pancreatitis flare up. She is back doing walks again now she has a bit of energy and is now up to (cringe!) 2.8kg!

Toad is loving his agility! He no longer does agility runs, just jumping and steeplechase but he still seems to be able to cope with 400 height which is brilliant. He won his steeplechase on Sunday at Lydiard by four seconds...not bad for a dog who is 11.5 years old! I also realised that he is only 3 points from going into Champ steeplechase so that is the goal by the end of the year!

Here is my little dude in action...


Brooke bean has been doing so well recently getting into the champ finals at Dundee and Northern Week. She is far more consistent than she used to be and is slowly learning lots of the skills training that she missed out on when she was younger and then off agility for two years. She has the same weave entry homework as Bru! Her pull thrus are coming on lovely and she is good generally about not taking the point that sometimes she won't take an obvious one for Matt!

She did an awesome couple of runs at Fab KC, she won the agility and came 2nd in the jumping. So pleased with her weave entry!!

Spark is finally getting a little bit of consistency and I'm getting confidence in my handling and timing with her in the ring. She did four runs at the weekend and went clear in three of them!! Maybe my fiery angel is growing up?!

I loved this run from Fab KC as I tested my pull thru after aframe and running dog walk to wrong end of tunnel and she nailed them both!!

The next day at Lydiard (after saying to one of my RC friends I haven't needed to use her stopped dog walk on a course for ages, I used it!) Spark managed to qualify for the CSJ Grand Prix by winning the heat! Yay agility goals this season ticked off :-)

He is now 16 months and old enough to play in the ring at UKA! He doesn't seem to care about working somewhere different at all and is taking it all in his stride. Lydiard was a great show as there was a practice ring and we could take his manners minder in and reward some dog walk down planks!

Such a handsome, sweet little boy! He has had his first UKA measure as well and is definitely toy height!
