Teach a Dog Dressage?

OK.OK. I know. Sounds crazy. But can you do it??

Now that's we've started agility, I'm amazed at how much fun I'M having...because, quite frankly, it's just like training a horse. Really! Obviously totally different on the surface (although as big as some GSD's are getting, you could probably ride them through the course).

To me, agility is just like show jumping with a little cross-country thrown in. The table is like a bank jump. Tire is like a keyhole. Right now the jumps are teeny little verticles.

So, what about teaching a dog to piaffe, passage, or do flying changes??

Holy carp!!! I LOVE IT! I didn't even think to google it. I thought I was the only weirdo in the world that thought like that! Haha!

This is my new goal. I'm going to start a new dog sport revolution.

Of course! You might have to wait two years, but gosh darn it, I'm doing it!

I know! Insntead of 3 day eventing--3 day dogging. Dressage on day 1, agility in the wilderness on day 2 for cross country phase. "Regular" agility on day 3 for stadium.

YES!
