We are lucky enough to live within a few minutes walk of a lovely bush. Today I took my camera along as the doglets and I went for our morning walk. This has to be a current favourite picture. Last night Max and I went with my trainer and her masters dog to an outdoor training facility to practice. Max will be running his first standard course next month and we haven't really done all the contacts in sequence yet. He did really well. I had a couple of handling bobbles but Max is the best first agility dog. At this point he doesn't have blazing speed but that means even if I'm late in my cues he usually manages to take the obstacle that I want him to. He's very thoughtful and attentive. It was a new venue for him and he'd never met my handlers BC - who sometimes doesn't like other dogs at all. She was lovely with Max - she was the one who came up to say hello to him. I think I better start my own training program though.
