Thanks Laura, didn't realize I posted the same video twice.
Here is extension/collection........

And another lesson from a couple weeks ago.............

Today's exercise will be serps. Oh my, we have tried them a few times and now that The Mighty Bimster is six months old he has some POWER and speed and isn't quite understanding it is about the jumps. He totally understands to wrap, if I give my collection cue early enough. No sloppy handling with this little powerhouse, he won't let me get away with it, LOL!!!!

Six months old, probably over 16" tall and 23lbs.

Videos as promised!

 Working extension and then collection..

 First sequence using low bars.........

First time doing any "lengthy" heeling and first time outside. Trying to get him to not look at my hand. Silvia's suggestion - holding the hand behind my back. Not sure I care about him looking at my hand? I use hand signals almost exclusively, so not sure that's an issue? Experimenting......

Been playing with a free app!!!

Pretty cool!!! A photo editing app called Aviary. Really fun.........

Hey!!!!! Did to miss me?????

Ok, sorry, some have written me complaint about my lack of blog posts. Um....remember I have a highly active PUPPY!!!!!! We are busy, busy and and the weather has been fabulous, so we are enjoying life to the fullest!!!!

Bim is now six months and a bit bigger than I had planned. Pretty sure he is now 16 1/2", which is how big his mum is. His dad is 15 1/2, so we had hoped for no bigge than 16. Going over that means he will jump 18" in USDAA which he can do easily, but it means he jumps that in USDAA and 16 in AKC. Would rather a dog have to jump only one height, but oh well. Nothing I can do, we aren't sending hm back!! 😉
He is now 22.5lbs. A big boy!!! And SUPER fun to train. I promise I'll post videos soon. He is now doing low bars, 4" jumps and it feels like he's truly doing agility!!!!! hE LOVES it and barks and screams his way around a course. We may end up called the loud team!!!! lol!!!! It is a bit to get used to, I have never run a loud barker before.

He and Spur are becoming very nice friends. And that makes me very happy.

Rotten Roscoe is showing signs of age that makes me feel the end is coming. More drinking, pooping n the house. I thnk he just forgets, then can't hold it. Had my niece and nephew for dinner last week and he stepped in it and walked all through the kitchen before we realized it. Oh MY!!!!! Amazing no one smelled it??????? I guess my fabulous cooking smells masked it? Oi!!!! Glad it was my niece and nephew and not some others who might have been totally grossed out. We watch our step now.........always.
