Donna and I had a tiny taste of dog agility at the PetExpo Saturday morning (that’s yesterday!)
I had some difficulty trying to get Donna to weave through the poles, but Mr P says it’s because half the time I’m standing too close and blocking her from weaving. OMG!

After 2-3 turns doing the jumping route, I was more comfortable with Donna being off-lead for this, and she did great!!

The ramp was the one thing that I had the most apprehension about, knowing that Donna does have some nervousness with new platforms that she sometimes perceives as unstable and “life-threatening”. :P She was a little hesitant at the start but she totally flew over it at the end.

Her tail was wagging throughout the session, probably due to the massive amount of sausage that Mr P accused me of over-feeding her. But hey, I needed to be more interesting than all the other dogs around in order to get her to focus on getting through the different equipment, right?
