    Exciting, my agility set arrived today so hopefully the weather will be good enough tomorrow and Thomas and I have some time to set it up in the garden and get going especially after watching the agility at Crufts this evening - amazing :) x

    Yeee ha, Thomas and I have just had so much fun getting started with our agility set. Charlie wide eyed for his agility toy, sitting focusing on me for his instructions, going through the tunnel at great speed :eek::D, over the hurdle, through the hoop and weaving round the poles like a pro :) Hattie did all the the obstacles too.

    I recommend this to anyone who wants to get their dogs brain working a bit more, get them focused and exercise more into the bargain!, so cheap to set up in your garden and you can get your children involved too :) xx

    Well I just can't believe how focused Charlie actually can be. Thomas has just taken him into the garden for more atility fun, they did so well, Charlie looking to him for every instruction and clearly enjoying himself, he made it round the course without hesitation. Thomas is so excited he is going to make some more hurdles :)

    This is the dog that used to run the perimeter of our garden and now he just wants to have fun! :) xx

    I reckon you might just be seeing a video sooner than I thought!! ;) x

    I have a very basic course in the hall- Chairs, a broom stick and a hoop. Its one way to help poppy bond with me. Onyx just sits and watches He thinks we are nuts. ;)
