Reggie begins agility classes!
Reggie and I began a new chapter in his training "journey", agility !
Agility is designed for dogs that are active and love to be active. That is Reggie to a tee. I wont say that he has mastered traditional obedience training but he has become a bit bored with the repetition of it. So we are taking a little break from the sit stay....downs.....comes.....heals....and figure eights and now are concentrating on jumps...A frames....tire jumps and weaves.
First night went very well. Reggie was very happy and I had a smile on my face. He seemed to enjoy the release of energy and I loved watching the natural athleticism that he and the other dogs have. Its amazing how effortless Reggie and some other dogs make these excersises look.
As I write. He is asleep at my feet. I can tell that he had a fun night and kinda got to be a Sheltie again! We will be back next week and I am sure that he will have his tail wagging.....as I chase him through the course!
