    DefaultMUCH BETTER!!!!! WOOOOOOOT!!!

    Agility class tonight was AWESOME!!!!!!

    I took Baloo to the park this afternoon, to try and tire him a little so he wouldn't be so hyped. I also brought Mr. Magic-toy (who's now pretty much destroyed), and I decided that if I wanted to get and keep his attention, I was going to have to be just as hyper (if not more so!) than he is. ;D

    All these things equaled an AMAZING class tonight!!! I am still GLOWING!!!! Mind you, I'm exhausted from running and jumping around like a crazy person for an hour, but it feels GREAT!!!!

    He focused intently on everything we were doing, executed it amazingly well. Didn't take off after another dog even once, and he spent 90% of the class dragging his (2 ft) lead, instead of me hanging onto the other end for dear life. AND, no whining/crying during breaks. ;D

    He didn't want to do the chute. Didn't seem afraid of it, he just almost seemed to miss the point. I would put his toy at the other end and send him, and he'd deke out at the last second, looking at me like, "why would I push through all that crap when I can just go around...?? Dumb human." :

    BUT, by the end of class he was whizzing through that chute like a pro!!!

    It obviously wasn't perfect, but my God what a difference from last week. Part of why I was so frustrated last week was because I knew he could do soooo much better, and this week reinforced that belief.

    WOW I feel GREAT!!! LOOKOUT agility peeps, here comes BALOO!!!!!! ;D ;D ;D ;D

    You'll also be suprised by how weird they can act if someone has a different trainer or a different dog. Or next class sesion when its a first class again...

    Its like having a substitute teacher, and I think its hilarious!
