That damn teeter

They added nearly 300lbs of weights to the bottom and it feels different to the dogs. Most have gotten over it, it probably feels good, nice and solid, but for Spur it was "different". And it's going to take him some time to get used to it. We trial here a lot and he knew how it felt before and now it feels different and it has spooked him. But, he ran well and did an awesome turn off the dog walk into that tunnel. I have only trained that like 2-3 times!!! He likes his tunnels!!!

I LOVE how he starts this run. That is really holding up for us!!! :D

However, after this nice run he had a very slow and pokey Jumpers with weaves. 36 seconds! That's VERY slow. He qualified, but he should have done it in about 30 seconds. Was he worried about the teeter? Maybe because about half way he sped up. Did he suddenly realise this was a jumpers run and there would be no teeter? Maybe. Who knows, we have our ups and downs, for sure.

  1. Awesome start!!!! Super happy boy! And that dogwalk turn looked very cool.

    Bummer about the teeter. Fingers crossed that he forgives the teeter during the next trial.

    And as a side note, I was at a seminar this weekend and there was a mini aussie that reminded me so much of Spur. Same coloring and ears!
