|Koji has been progressing really nicely in Agility over the past few months. He has gained more skills, confidence and speed when he runs and it shows.
I am very proud of his Excellent FAST run on Sunday. FAST is a game where there is a distance send involved. There will be a line on the ground and the handler can not go pass that line while the dog has to go behind the line and complete the obstacle sequence in order (usually 3 obstacles). The Bonus Send of the FAST run in this video is 2 jumps and then the left side of the tunnel and the distance is about 15 feet.
Most of the dogs that got the bonus send have great verbal/directional training to do the distance send. With us, it is really the strategy of leading out laterally far enough to the line that I could push into him to take the first jump in the sequence and still able to run a direct line to show forward motion for him to take the second jump and the tunnel without zipzagging.
I love his speed and enthusiasm here. He ran fast and happily and has lovely running A-Frame. Standard Course Time (SCT) is 35 and his time is 22.65

This is Koji in Master Jumper with Weave (JWW) on Saturday. He gave me his fastest YPS (Yards Per Second) so far in this run. He responded very well to all the body/motion cues and I hardly utter a word during the whole run.
