LicanAntai, That's an amazing photograph but it makes my mouth dry to look at it. (and the video was great too.)

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

Molly and a big log last autumn.



and Molly through barbed wire. This was very useful hiking.

I could never get her to go down a sliding board though without jumping off half way.

(hope it's okay to post video here...just opened a photobucket acct.)

Re: Agility in the 'real' world

I have always done what I like to call "urban agility". Whenever we are on walks I use any "obstacle" we come across to have Ginger jump on, go under, weave through, etc... Whenever we come across a short wall she will jump up and walk across (without me telling her in the case of ones we pass regularly on walks.)
Before we started agility I used to play with Ginger in a playground at a park we often visit. A lot of the playground equipment is comparable to agility equipment and I think it really gave her a head start in that when we started agility she was comfortable with all the obstacles. They even have something at the playground which looks like a longer, skinnier version of the UKC "swing plank."

Oh wait, I looked around and I do have a few photos, not any really good ones though or playground ones...

I also have a video but the sound is way out of sync with the picture so I'd suggest watching with the sound turned down:

(She's pretty slow in the video, it was taken when she was 10 years old and she has pretty severe spondylosis. She's 12 now.)


Ginger practicing up and down/stay after our tree was cut down:



"Up" on a rock:



Wall-walking:



Rock "climbing" (in the Smoky Mountains)

Re: Agility in the 'real' world

It's that time of year to be thinking of new places to take our pups, new things to do with them, and take some photos to add to this thread!

Re: Agility in the 'real' world

Hexe on some picnic tables, she pretty much started doing this on her own after I asked her to get on to a picnic table one day!

Re: Agility in the 'real' world

Wow, now that video is EXACTLY what I think is so great how once we get our minds going in a different direction, when we SEE things we can make them into training opportunities for our dogs!

Let me say, when I thought I'd see your dog on a picnic table, it wasn't anything like what I just saw on the video. GREAT JOB!
