So last night was my first agility class. At first it was horrible. We had to sit there and do nothing while the trainer went over info for our parents. And it was so hard to sit there by all these new dogs and be quiet and not go say hello.But then we got to get up and start moving around which was much better. First, the teacher taught us some warms ups to do. Then she had us practice walking across this board/bench. I didnt do it at first. i just didnt get it, why couldnt i just walk around it, but mom wanted me to walk on top of it so i did.
Then we practiced the tunnel which is lots of fun. But i still stop before going in it because im not sure why i need to go through it but mom tells me to go through it so i do. We then practiced on the pause box which was way easy. The trainer thought i might not be able to jump up on it, she obviously hasnt worked much with corgis cause just because our legs are short doesnt mean we cant jump pretty high. finally we worked on jumps, which i did pretty good. But mom felt bad because i am the shortest in the class so everytime it was my turn they had to lower the bar for me and then raise it again when i was done. But oh well not my fault im kinda short. Mom thinks i could have done the higher heights but since were new its safest to start lower anyway.
All in all i liked it. But i did bring out the fun police a little bit. when we were doing the obstacles mom had to take me off my gentle leader, which i figured ment i could misbehave. And with all the other dogs running around having fun i had to bark at them. This got me in a lot of trouble with mom, she hopes that by the end of the class i won't do that anymore, I guess ill think about it. Im looking forward to next weeks class.
