Videos!

I finally got around to taking some videos of Fern’s agility work.  Keep in mind, I’ve done virtually no training of this dog.  She just sort of does it.

Please excuse the potato-sack outfit I’m wearing.  It’s comfortable and about three sizes too big for me.

Fern’s lead-out stay:

She’s got great jumping form, just like her Dad.  I just need to work with her so that she understands that knocking the jumps is not part of the game. She’s quite handler focused and sometimes runs through, around or under jumps. Jumping isn’t her favorite thing.

Here’s Fern’s running dog walk:

And another one:

Right, left spins and tugging. She is a tugging fiend. I know she’s following my body movements, but I think at this time, she knows right from left and doesn’t need to follow the body movements. Something to work on.

Back chaining the A-frame to a jump.

Full running A-frame and jump.

I really need to make the time to train this dog …
