Well pups I had my first try at Earth Dog and boy was that fun, fun fun!!
I got to bark, whine, paw and try to find this rat in a metal cage.
At first the lady had it out in the open so I could find it. Then she started dragging it around to get me worked up. Then she hid it in a wooden box and when I figured that out she put a lid on it and made it a small tunnel with the rat at the end.
Once I knew where that rat was and went after it, they made it harder and made the tunnel longer with a turn in it. Then mom and the lady encourage me to stay at the rat and bark, growl and bite at it's cage and they told me what a good boy I was.
I got to try a bigger tunnel next with one big turn...boy was that scary and dark...and in the ground!! Mom had to help me with that one but I eventually found that rat and stayed on it until mom opened up the tunnel petted me and told me what a good boy I was and took me out.
All in all it was a pretty fantastic day!
Of course when I got home I had to rub it in to Reece, just like he does to me when he comes home from agility!!
