Zaz and Itz have turned 15 months. They can now be officially measured and next month they can attend some UKA shows in Nursery and Steeplechase. I still think of them as babies so I am glad that they cannot actually compete until June. In many ways they are the least trained puppies I have ever had but that is OK. I know all the basics are there and we just need to work on stringing together more than 5-6 obstacles.
I have not done much garden training this winter which is why I think they are slighly behind in training. Mostly the problem has been the weather as I am a fair-weather trainer. :-) Luckily I was inspired by watching 3 days of agility at Crufts and I dragged out the equipment on Sunday.
My main focus for this session was to improve Itz's speed on the see saw, to see if both pups could do a running A-frame into weaves and to work on cross behind weaves. This video shows our entire training session. I keep sessions short for three reasons. One: I find the pups do much better on short intense sessions, two: I get tired running two pups and three: Dennis gets bored videoing for too long! LOL
