I hope you didn't have to climb it yourself to demonstrate😊

Well, I did try, but the wood slats were too narrow, I couldn't get my feet on them.
Probably just as well, a few months in traction would not have been pleasant.

Up to now, I have been standing on the other side of the jump and luring Newlie over with a ball, but tonight, for the first time, Newlie went over the jump with me running (trotting) beside him. Several times, he tried to take a short cut and go around the jump, but I would immediately stop and we would start all over again. He did it three times and, of course, I acted like a nut! What a good boy!

Awesome! Well done Newlie!

Our trainer had some agility equipment out last week... Kaiser loved it, it did so well at all of it. We have to wait till 14months of age before we are allowed to join in agility training for real, but I think as soon as we can we will... Kaiser had such a sparkle doing it.

When he would try to take a shortcut I would stop, go back to where he started, make him sit, point at the jump and say "You have to go OVER the jump, buddy" and it was kind of uncanny, but he always would.
