Cricket and the contacts ;-)

We had a great weekend here-really quiet but nice, with some thunderstorms and no agility practice.....

Today we did a few contacts-I would like to speed up our dog walk a little, although sometimes it is pretty fast and they are getting faster I think, but I decided to time them so I will know if we are getting better over time ;-).

I have not done a full teeter in a bit and was playing around with some games I saw in clean run to speed that up, so today was the first time I tried a full teeter again, and not sure the games were helping ;-).

THE cool thing is the aframe is at 5 ft 3, and NO PROPS, look mom no training wheels and I think it still is doing OK.

Cricket is a very good girl. :-) We worked on our contacts today too, but not for very long cause it was too hot. I didn't get video though. I can tell you that we still have a quite a ways to go before our dogwalk is as fast as Crickets.

Man, she looks so much fun to run with and train - drive drive drive! She looks like she never sleeps!

The running A-frame looks like it's coming along wonderfully :)

WooHoo Cricket! Awesome contact work!

Of course she's a good girl! Wow Kathy, she is so light on her feet and athletic. She was made for agility.

Your a-frame is amazing. I wouldn't have had the patience to go through all those steps that you did, but the payoff for all that training is huge!

SHe will be a crowd favorite at agility trials.

Man, Ive had a terrible time getting your videos to show up when I go to your blog. It usually takes me multiple days of trying. Isnt that weird. So I subscribed to your Youtube acct.
Cricket looks awesome. I just read something in Clean Run about speeding up contacts. I think is was in the running dogwalk article.
