We do not wallow in the hard times […]

A very interesting video to watch and see what is possible with your dog’s entries into and onto all equipment. It is always amazing to see dogs take weaves from difficult angles proving the dog knows the entry point. And there is no arguing that the tunnels can and should be able to be entered at all angles as well. But what about the collapsed chute and the contact obstacles?  Should these be attempted at any angle? There is a […]

    Jane Demonstrates the Jaakko, German and Double Lapturn

    Jane Christensen and her two dogs Do It and Jiggy do a super job of demonstrating some of the harder handling maneuvers. At the beginning you will see them perform the German turn, “send behind the jump to a blind,” along with the Jaakko turn. The Jaakko turn is where the handler turns the opposite way or with their back to the jump, a maneuver some don’t like because you lose sight of the dog. In the middle of the […]

This handler is a phenomenal trainer and handler and is no stranger to the winners circle either. Watching these runs in this indoor horse arena is painful to me because I know how hard that is to do.

This dog would be overlooked at a shelter due to it’s fearful and recluse behavior and maybe to it’s death. Watch how in under five minutes this […]

    Beware! Cuteness Overload with Henry the Agility Goat

    From time to time we come across another animal making a valet attempt and doing dog agility and succeeding. Well, Henry may not be doing distance work and he is still being lured, but darn it he is crazy adorable! And while it is slightly unfair because goats by nature are fearless, daring and agile I don’t think the dogs need to worry just yet. It is just plain fun to see the creativity of others teaching animals and showing […]
