We’re back taking agility classes! We couldn’t be happier. The teacher this time is Gwyn and she is amazing. Gwyn and her Staffordshire Bull Terrier, Gus have been invited to the AKC Agility Invitationals in Orlando, Florida this December! Only the top 5 dogs of each breed are accepted into the Invitationals. We have learned so much in the three classes we have completed. Here are a couple of videos made of Wrigley last night!

We are almost through with our beginning agility class and I’ve learned a lot of new things. Last night we spent some time working on the dog walk, jumps, the tunnel and pause table.

I didn’t get to say much in the podcast, in the first part I was too busy crying and flirting with Burch and in the second part I was napping. Here’s my side of the story…. Class was great fun, I completed all the obstacles as well as anyone else in my class (I may have been better than some, but I don’t want to brag). So far, my favorite parts (aside from all of it) are the tunnel and the tire. I think it might be because, no one holds my leash when I run through them. I hear … this spot continues
