Default Zefra's first time on the wall/steep A-frame.

Stark had been doing some training with me tonight and Zefra was showing interest while playing ball with my sister, so I decided to try and see if she would do the wall (A-frame that is SUPER steep!).

This is her first introduction to this - she has done some low agility A-frames before, but nothing like this.

Do you think she had an issue?

Don't mind the heeling and sitting - she wasn't "in fuss" - just offering the behaviour because I had her reward ball.


Zefra is 19 months old.

I think it is way scarier for us when they do the big A frame for the first time lol. I was so freaked out about Odin doing the steep schutzhund A frame and he was like "what's the big deal!?? This is fun." Your lucky you have that landing for when they are learning.

She looked like she was enjoying herself

Yes, it's a great "buffer" for us humans knowing that the landing is there in the beginning.

As they learn that is pulled from the landing and positioned by itself. I was there by myself tonight and didn't have the strength needed to pull it apart.. lol.

Haha... I agree!

We are super lucky - we have permission to use the local K9 training facility, so tend to go there and train a lot. I like it because all of the equipment is set up and there is even more stuff to work on (metal tunnels, different types of jumps, the a-frame, a wall, a ladder, board walk, etc.. tones of stuff to do besides just the jump and a-frame. Great place to work with young dogs.
