    Defaultagility classes with wild girl

    Well I am getting out of my winter funk, I haven't done any training with the dogs all winter....tonight I am signing up for agility. Now I have tried agility with Gordy but he just had no go, so my little boston terrier is going to learn the ropes...or should I say weaves. lol. She is a little ADHD, so wish us luck that wiggle butt enjoys her classes.

    I have an ADHD dog as well, Remington. Makes it a bit of a challenge, but we continue to work on it

    well....I guess I need to find a new training place. Pixie was attacked tonight by another dog in class and just a year ago my other little dog (r.i.p) sunshine was nearly attacked. I am tired of my dogs being freaked out because of all the stupid owners that can't or won't control their dog. ugh.

    as a person with little dogs I am very watchful and assertive
    I won't run my dogs unless every other dog is under control if I know someone in the room is lacadasical - I will actually hold up class waiting for dogs to be leashed
    people think I'm nuts but I've seen how very very fast bad injuries happen ...

    I am so sorry your dog was attacked.

    I've just changed my lesson policy. I used to allow free play time in the field, but am finding that it is hurting many of our dogs in the ring because they realize that they can run and play on the equipment at home at will. Also, I am going to be running Remington in class now and when he's in his field, he can be a bit territorial and has had some aggressive tendancies (oddly, only with his brother/litter mate) but I don't want any chances that it will escalate, so my policy has changed that all dogs will be on leash or crated at all times in the field unless it's their turn to work.

    some of the folks have gotten upset about this new rule because they looked forward to wearing their dogs out with the playtime, but I'm not running a dog park... and I do want Remington to join in some of the classes, I think it will help him tremendously.

    Kudos for looking for a new place.
