Yesterday we had agility training and Koda did SOOOO great! I didnt even know who this dog was, he did every obstacle and did it really fast too! We were up to five obstacles which is unheard of for a level 101 doggie (especially for a puppy!) according to our teacher. The hardest part of agility is the time of year we are doing it in... we are under a tent in the middle of summer so its EXTREMELY hot in there. Towards the end of class he is really tired cause he is just so hot. Hopefully sometime during the month we can go watch some trials so we know what we are getting ourselves into. Hopefully one day we will be able to compete with Koda. He really seems to enjoy it and since he is so young we are hoping we will be able to do it with him for a long time. The best part of having Koda in agility is not just the exercise or having him enjoy himself, but he is learning to watch us and listen to us more and more. He is already such a great dog, but he is learning to watch us for cues. We went to the dog park last week and he didnt run off immediately after getting off his lease like he normally does. He ran a few steps, stopped, looked back at us and waited for us to get to him and then we had to release him. He did that a few times, he wasn't sure if he was allowed to run off. Man of man do we love our pup!
Well that is it for now, gotta run some errands then we are going to the dog park or on a run.
