Agility Camp part II (new friends)

On Tuesday the camp started for real. We’d driven down to the farm the day before so we wouldn’t get lost. As it turns out we did anyway. More or less. We’d not driven all the way there, but stopped when we got to the final part of the instructions (turn right and it will be the first house on your right). So instead of turning right we’d just turned home. Turns out it wasn’t that easy. Thankfully we were 3 cars driving behind each others as there was yet another turn to the right (and the house turned up on the left).. without the others driving ahead of us we’d probably have given up. But we got there!

The theory parts were done inside, and we also ate lunch here.

Out in the field! We were 10 participants, 6 from Norway and 4 from Sweden. Rather surprising since we were in the middle of Sweden. We thought we were crazy traveling that far, but on the other hand the others were on a higher level than us. Actually none of them had done no agility (like us).

Gummi spent some of his time between action in his crate with the crate fan on and sometimes he’d sit outside with me. Often we needed several sets of hands (altering hight or holding dogs or rewards for instance) and had to keep them crated, but he did get to sit and watch a bit, too. And of course you’d walk them to warm up and such before doing any activity. They suggested about 20 minutes walking as a good warm-up in most cases.

This super cute Border Terrier came one of the evenings to do some handling work. His name is Dennis and he loved his Jolly Ball!

They sold lots of fun toys there, too, so we just HAD to do some shopping 😉 You can never have too many fun toys, right?!

Tomorrow we’ll show you what *I* did!

Kisses, Gummi
