I Must Be Crazy
I am heading off next weekend to an agiity handling seminar. I hemmed and hawed about which dog to bring and I decided to bring Rylie. Max really shut down after the seminar we went to in the spring and I'm not really sure now. I do know that he is much fitter and thinner now and he is able to make a mistake without thinking the world has ended but Rylie is a little less soft. My trainer also thinks he deserves the opportunity to work with me one on one for a weekend. Rylie is also a little less trained and he tends to be quite vocal when he feels he has been wronged (like when I leave him in his crate and walk away or refuse to throw the ball for him) so it could be interesting. I know I'll learn a lot and I think I've gotten over being intimidated by being one of the greenest handlers at the seminar (it just means I have more to learn and will surely get my moneys worth).
