Stewie and I had an hour at Bo-Gee last night with Kelly and Sheena. We worked on distance, he can send to the dog walk from at least 25 feet and I layered the weaves and some jumps, and he stopped on the contact every time!!
Unfortunately he was back to creeping down the A-frame, which he doesn’t do very often, I don’t know why. Kelly let me borrow a piece of carpet since I didn’t have a mouse pad with me, and with that in place as a target, he was back to running down and downing on the carpet.
We also worked with the A frame with a tunnel discrimination and in and out cues worked quite well. All in all it was a great practice and he was ready to settle down when we got home which is a plus too.

Stewie at Addicted to Agility Sept 20-21, 2008
It was a beautiful trial at a beautiful site in Wrentham, MA. Stewie did his usual great job in Elite Jumpers getting a Q and a 1st place in Jumpers Saturday am. His time was 25.64 out of 30.8, going 5.19 YPS.
Stewie got a Q and 1st place in Elite Tunnelers also, going 5.34 YPS. He had a great regular run, missing a contact in one, and going off course in the 2nd so no Q’s there.
Sunday we got 2 more Elite Regular Q’s which is awesome!Both were 2nd places with Sherry the Sheltie getting 1st.
New England Agility Teams hosted a NADAC trial at beautiful Wakeda Campground in Hampton Falls Sept 6-7.
Stewie had a great weekend at NEAT. He got a 1st and Q in Elite Jumpers with a course time of 25.82 going 5.54 YPS (yards per second). We missed the Chances which had a send out layering the dog walk, but Stew went on to nail both of his Elite Regular classes with Q’s and 1st places! Way to go Stewie.
On Sunday Stewie got both his Elite Regular Q’s again with both 1st places. This is the first time we have ever gone 4 for 4 in Regular in a weekend. Stewie also Q’d with a 1st place in Elite Touch and Go, with a course time of 31.73 out of 48.4 which is 5.89 YPS.
At noon we are headed to Wrentham for Stewie’s next NADAC trial. There are tunnelers fun run thru’s for charity this afternoon, which we still do at least a couple of, it helps tire him out for the motel room!
