Recently, I have enrolled my dog in an agility class, which is when you take your dog around jumps, through tunnels and over obstacles. It has been very fun to train my dog, Jasper, and he is catching on very quickly.
I take him to regular classes on Saturday at 10 o’clock in the morning at Super Fly Canine Training Centre. Most of the other dogs in the class are much younger than Jasper. Most of them are just over one year old. But because Jasper is 5 years old he is more concentrated so he learns really fast. I hope to take Jasper into the advanced class but he still has a lot to learn.
He is quite greedy which helps because he will do anything for a treat. He gets frantic to get the treat. He has to learn to do the tricks without a treat in the end, but he has a long way to go for that. For now I load my pockets with bonios and he will go through the tunnel, the hoop, over the jump and through the weave poles. I don’t think he would do that without the treat.
