Lively Agility Training Photos
Susan Anderson, a great professional agility trainer and competitor from Rapid City, comes monthly in the good-weather months to help us improve our handling skills and to help us improve our dogs’ agility skills. We finally had nice enough weather to hold our last Sunday/Monday training session of 2011 outdoors (September, when these photos were taken). I take photos of everyone else’s dogs and really appreciate Bobbi & Jodi taking photos of mine. I worked Berakah, Chaos & Lively – so look for the photos of the other two as well. So far this year we have had to use an indoor arena because of the heat – and the light is too dim for good photos. Hopefully we’ll get some more good photos this year. I don’t have any competition photos of Lively yet since no professional photographers went to the trials she competed in last year – and we haven’t been able to make any trials this year because none are close enough to drive back and forth daily, which is what I have to do since I have elderly ones at home to care for.
We keep excitement and speed high through rewards – sometimes food, sometimes toys.
