2-minute dog trainer – today’s the day we debut!

I’ve been working towards this day since March 10, 2010. With as focus as I can manage at my age, we’ve planned and trained and hoped and dreamed.

All I want is for Tempest to be smiling at the end of the run, and for some of the agility equipment to be left standing. <g>

I’ll post updates here and on facebook. The schedule in Cincinnati has us arriving at the trial site early afternoon, so I’ll have time Saturday morning for updates on Friday afternoon’s trainwreck / bliss.

It is so marvelous to have an agility dog again. Bud’s let me run Hazard in teacup trials, but I haven’t had a standard agility run with one of my dogs since 2007.

And, in 2007, Dash was dealing with fear issues (as always) regarding the start line “go” box, so there were no Qs, very little bliss, just a lot of calming.

More later!  (For anyone new to reading my on-line journal of 2-minute-dog-training for dog agility, Tempest has been trained since he was 8 weeks old, 2-3 times a day, for just a few minutes. He only started doing sequencing, and group classes, at 12 months. For the last 3 months he’s been doing class at our place and at another club’s site, to experience different equipment and environments. He’s a very good boy and I love him dearly.)

    Marsha – I am wishing you the best of luck at Tempest’s first trial. I know you will have fun, no matter what! I am looking forward to your posts. I remember the fear I had at the first trial I entered with Dylan. Thanks to your encouragement, I took him to that first trial, and I’m so glad I did. Good Luck!
