I started taking classes with Bud Houston and absolutely love it! My owner is still a bit retarded about what we are doing, but she's slowly improving. At fun night last week, I came in third playing this strange game based on PacMan. Considering the competition, I was pleased. Most of those dogs are professionals and have been training their humans and competing with them for some time.
The only bad thing about classes on Sunday is that my idiot brother comes along, too. Half the time I have to sit in the crate and watch him act like a spaz. I try so hard to show him how it is done, but his body moves so much faster than his brain, he just gets lost on the course. I'm sure I could do a better job handling him than Katy, but for some reason, they insist that agility teams have to be a dog and a human.
At tomorrow's class, I have to remember to be patient with Katy. She's still getting the hang of doing front crosses and RFPs and all those fancy handler tricks. But together with Bud, I think I'm doing a good job training her. Maybe soon she'll be ready for competition.
