It is fun, as well as physically and mentally tiring to learn new stuff. It is a great thing!
Well in the agility sphere here in Australia there is a bit of buzz about at the moment about the way the Europeans are doing agility and there are some folks from Finland called One Mind Dogs that are doing some pretty cool stuff. They are coming out to Sydney in April next year to hold a seminar. Mum is going along… will be the 1st time she has done a seminar like this so should be interesting. You can check out some of their runs and their philosophies on my Agility Videos page we have set up so we can find these, mainly YouTube clips, again.
So over the last few weeks we have been starting to try some of their stuff. Lovin’ it. The thinking is a lot about giving me advance notice as to where you want me to go (works for me) and then get out of my running line (again works for me). We are far from good at this yet but having heaps of fun learning new stuff (come home absolutely shattered!).
Thought we would share a couple of clips of some of this stuff with mum and I learning… so here is Learning Windmills and Learning the German Turn. Will be a little while before we probably use these in a trial as we get used to them but hope you enjoy watching us practice.
And now back to zzzzzz
Cool – thanks for the links! Looks like a good seminar to be at. Unfortunately all the working spots are gone, but well worth the Audit spot at the least.
We were too late for working spot too and just mum is just going along in an audit spot.
Awesome videos, you really fly around the course!
Thanks Guys! Lower height than I would jump in a trial as was learning new stuff. Means I run faster.
