Agility, working, walking, following me

Dirtbikes, he hates them. Dogs that jump in his face.

Favorite Toy:
Tennis ball

Favorite Food:
Treats, anything, he's a lab who likes food.

Favorite Walk:
Down in Fishgulf; at my nieghbors trails which he can run free

Best Tricks:
Ummm.... he has tons. Prolly walking backwords up stairs and all his agility obstacles.

Arrival Story:
Marshal was found as a stray in a near-by park near my aunts work, a vet. Marshal was brought to the vet and my aunt convinced my family to take him. We had no idea what was in store for us. Haha!

Marshal was trouble from the start. When we first brought him home, he ran away, got in the garbage, got on couches he wasn't supposed to be on, chased cars, and jumped our gate just to eat a little cat food. When I got into the walking habit I decided to bring him along, this started a little bond between us. About 2 years after my family decided that Marshal had claimed me as his owner, I got into agility. I didn't think Marshal could ever do it because of his bad running away habits. I trained my older dog, Tucker, in it. One day while working Tucker in my garage, Marshal was chasing us while doing agility, Marshal actually jumped the jump with Tucker. I decided to start training Marshal. I now have a dog that doesn't run away from me, is doing amazing at agility, and will start showing soon. He doesn't even run off to chase cars while I'm working him, even though he does like to run away from other people. I'm so proud of my boy. He's my little tag along, I have complete love and trust in him.

Forums Motto:
What!?!?! Tennis ball!?!?! Anytime!

Marshal has his first show n' go this weekend. It's going to be his first time working agility in a show environment. I'm soooo nervous. He can now do every obstacle, but the weaves, haha! His teeter is hilarious. Hope I can get a good view of it on video. He doesn't stop half way while it falls, he runs straight and doesn't stop til he gets to his 2o2o contact then falls to the ground with the end of the teeter. He loves his a-frame and tunnel! His dog walk is amazingly fast!!! SOOOO exited! Everyone told me he would never be able to go to a show and he was pointless to train, but look at his now =P
