Agility

Aaron and I had the chance today to stop in and watch an agility competition going on this weekend.  We  didn't take the boys along (don't tell them!) but really enjoyed watching the dogs do their stuff! 

This boxer was so happy he jumped into his Mom's arms!

First Flat-coated Retriever I've seen!

Jack?  Is that you?

Look at that face!

I found the perfect place to take pictures.

I hope I get a picture of Sam or Monty jumping thru the tire one day!

We saw one Sibe there too!
...and he saw us!  I think he knew the paw-parazzi was watching him!

...and a happy Sprollie!
We couldn't stay too long, but we really did enjoy ourselves!  I can't wait to try this with our boys!

  2. Our Rose Bud took agility classes a while back and says they were a lot of fun. Mom thinks maybe she and I will do some in the Fall. It's great bonding and exercising time for dog and human!!

    AROOOOOF!

  3. I've taken Honey to watch agility competitions and she's very interested in all the goings on. However, when I try to do agility moves with obstacles around the neighborhood she's not so thrilled.

    I think she just likes watching all the other dogs working so hard.

    BTW, loved the dog tire shots. They were terrific!

  4. I love watching agility!! I also love what's called 'synchronized obedience' that is not nearly as popular, but is also great fun to watch and be inspired by!

    I hope you're continuing to enjoy the weekend!!

  9. Great pics!!! This is something Mom would love to do, but with her bones, she says she just can't take a chance. She is hoping maybe the oldest grandbiped will do it one day.

  11. Our Mama would like us to do agility... but whenever we've had the chance to try it, we've just stood there and looked at the equipment and then backed away slowly! We are more "wrestle in the kitchen and snuggle on the couch" kinds of dogs!

  24. I love your action photos. Your pups will love agility. My K loved it... we have a homemade course behind our house. She's not allowed to do it anymore but we're keeping the course anyway. My neighbor is going to start using it with her puppy. That'll be fun!
