The second class was last night, and it went just as well as last week. Riggs has no issues with any of the equiptment - not that I'm surprised! I sent him over the wobble board and I don't think he even noticed.
We did more with the tunnel as well. It got a little "challenging" because it was in a horse shoe shape so he could see the target at the other end. The shortest route between Riggs and food is not
through the tunnel... but there is a reason they are on leash at this level!
the chute was no problem either.
We started with the A, and the first thing we were supposed to do was lift the dog onto the bottom section. Well, Riggs doesn't exactly like to be picked up. He didn't even fuss! YAY! Then we put them on it in progressivly higher spots, no problems there either. He went over without an issue, except his nails are a little long (off to the tennis courts today!)
At the end of the class we did some sequences. The instructor asked the other two dogs in my group to leave the ring while Riggs was running, which was cool. She didn't do it out of being afraid
of what he "might do" but out of understanding what could happen and taking steps to prevent it. He did jump, jump, tire, jump with no problem - he sure likes finding targets!
We have to do more target work before next week and I'm going to go buy a pile of plungers to work on weave poles in my kitchen...
