Agility Rocks!

I’ve wanted an agility dog for years. It was my not-so-secret goal to breed an agility dog for myself, and with Aussies it shouldn’t be so hard. I started taking classes with Cruiser two months ago and it’s been a blast. He’s smart, quick, and careful. And he’s also an all-around goofball. 

We have been taking classes with Paola at Shake-a-Paw. As with Lee Ann and Crys who teach scent detection, Paola’s philosophies very much jive with mine. We believe in bringing along puppies gently, letting our dogs figure out the questions and giving them time to work through the problems. The focus is on sound training, not sole preparation to competition. Afterall, we love the dog first and the sport second.
