Des and I began Sylvia Trkman’s Agility Foundation course last month. It’s been a good experience so far, albeit at a pace I’d describe as slightly faster than frenetic. Part of my lack of posting lately is because I come home from my job and then go to work. Des and I will go through a skill, then I’ll edit video and catch up on course reading. Somewhere in there, Dunc and I try to stir up a little dust in the field, and then I spend some time reminding the rest of my family what I look like! Thank goodness my husband understands time-consuming hobbies. (By the way, Sweetie, I think the mail guy kicked another 70 lb block of lead out in our driveway…)
Until recently, Des had never done more than three obstacles in a row. I’ve spent most of our time working mainly on foundation and focus, just with me. I haven’t shared a lot of Des video to date mainly because I wanted to allow him the time to find his feet, to help him decide if chasing around a field of obstacles was his idea of fun. This short sequence was part of our current lesson. I think my boy may have found his feet!
