Our Practice Sept 20,09 with Breeze

I uploaded a video of our practice today....nothing exciting but I have not posted any of our practices recently....maybe because we have not done as much? LOL. But, see we really still do agility once in awhile, hahahahaha. I was having trouble with the timing of the moving front cross, I was wanting to do it a bit late, which.....is not good for a dog that jumps long and fast, but we were getting it. I also am not that confident with the shallow rear crosses, and that shows....that is why I do all the arm action, so I need to settle down and trust my smart little Breeze, she is doing it really well, surprising me for sure. Breezes start line stay and her weaves are looking....simply marvelous if I do say so myself. One of my things I have been working on is my timing of throwing the reward and the first few times it sucked...but toward the end I was doing much better, sometimes especially after the weaves I am afraid of making her pop out because it has happened in the past, but once again....I need to trust my puppy!

WORST PART OF PRACTICING AGILITY IN THE DESERT:
DEFINATELY: I always put my toy in by pant waist band in the back and Breeze gets her ball all wet with slobber then it rolls in the dirt then I have to stick it into my waist band again...., oooh my gosh I am crusted with dirt down my pants after every practice, and as I sit here writing this I am reminded by the scratchy dirt that seems to be everywhere.....agility is much nicer in the grass, LOL

Are you using a ball? If you are they have little clippy things where you can clip it to your waist band and the ball sticks in it and it's easy to get to. I think you need to forget about putting it behind your back. You're late with the delivery.....

Happy Bday Breeze you're looking GREAT!

A clippie thing would also help me keep from dumping a truck load of sand down my back every practice too! LOL....hummm better timing and less sand...sounds like a winner idea!
