Re: Developing respect and partnership
I would love to get into agility. A new place just opened up but they seem to have a lot of rules (one being no dogs with any sort of aggression are allowed). Kaiser is weird with dominant males for the most part, but I'm put off by the fact that this place wont even take him as a student. I've done agility with Dakota (different facility) and the first classes are all on leash anyway, and we had some reactive dogs in that class who just stood a bit further away from the group with no issues.
There are a couple places about 1-1.5hrs from me, but right gas money is tight. I do some basic stuff with him myself and he seems to enjoy it, but I do want to get better focus under distractons down a bit more. Right now other dogs are more interesting than I am.
