BLACKPUPPY! The next time you go out to the playground, bring your camera, love to see more photos of more dogs and the creative ways we can take them out and about.

Does this count as practice for the "table"? (Not too bad for a 5 month old pup. )

You also got another "coat" picture.

Re: Agility in the 'real' world (whoohoo!)

Not exactly agility, but a confidence building and problem resolution exercise, so it applies here too

Re: Agility in the 'real' world (whoohoo!)

LicanAntai, finally got to watch the video of your pup getting the kong and it's EXACTLY the kind of 'out of the box' thinking that is ideal for those of us raising an agility dog.

Not only was there the distraction of all the traffic going by (not that your pup even looked at it ) but the footing your puppy was on that clearly wasn't stable is PERFECT for getting our pups used to the 'scary' teeter that also moves under them.

And the fact you used A TOY so the pup was completely motivated. As well as not luring and talking continuously but, instead, just giving your pup the chance to think and figure it out was well done indeed!

Thanks. That picture was taken at the "Painted Desert". I also have pictures(somewhere) of him at the Grand Canyon. They were all taken when we moved(drove obviously) from SC to WA when he was 5 months old. Since I didn't have anyone to take pictures of ME at these places, I took pictures of him. At least I could prove HE had been there.

Re: Agility in the 'real' world (whoohoo!)

Beautiful day today, so I took Ciana to the park. All I have to do is point and say "table!" and she runs over to the equipment and bounces around on it. She takes the slide on her own, but she never did mind what was under her feet. Oh, that's a pinecone in her mouth, not a deformity.







She's always had a thing for pinecones.

MRL I just saw your comment, thanks for it. I guess I learnt that "Outside of the box" thinking thanks to my SAR formation, there we use to do a lot of this stuff with our pups and worse

You can't see it in the video, but there is a link chain fence between the pup and the traffic or she wouldn't have been off-leash... not that it really mathers when the Kong or ball is in sight.

I think Diabla would make a perfect agility dog with her ball drive, handler focus and lean constitution, but I have no clubs in 700 miles . I'd really love to give it a try.

This pic is from some days ago:

You can be not afraid of heights, but Mom is, so please... come sloooowly back
