Today was a huge agility break through with Riley. You see, Riley May has been shutting down. I have no clue why she was doing that, at all. Not even 5 minutes into some training she'd shut down. She'd run away, wouldn't listen, didn't want anything to do with the jumps or me. No matter how hard I would encourage her. Although, she did love me a lot, when I put the jumps away.
Was she scared of the jumps? I don't think so, she had no problem walking around them and running through them if her ball went by them and such. I just don't know. Anyways, the other day she had a really positive run (and no, the other runs weren't negative in anyway) and was flying through the jumps and such. I ended the game very positive by being extremely excited and petting her, telling her she was a good girl and everything. So today, I decided to try this again, and look at her! She was having fun and she was enjoying herself!!
I can't tell you how happy and proud I am of her!! Looks like she will be getting a NADAC and AAC card too (since I plan to travel to Canada and trial there too)!! She's awesome, and we of course have a long way to go before we can trial, but she's amazing and is doing fantastic!! I really hope she continues to enjoy herself!!
P.S. Please ignore the plunger. I have no earthly idea where it came from. I didn't notice it until I made the video and posted it. Dang plunger...
