Baby dog

I was reminded by one of our wonderful trainers that Lexi is still a baby dog, and I shouldn't expect too much from her.  I am always forgetting that she is still a baby!  We hadn't even started agility with Bentley yet, at her age.

That being said, we went back out last night to try the course again, and I wanted to try to be a bit quicker with my directions.  I think it went well.  We were a lot more in tune.

There were a couple snafus, but I think the straight line (2 jumps) to the tunnel beyond the dogwalk is a really tough thing to do.  In fact, Bentley missed it too, when my husband ran it with him.  I could have tried a RC, but we only ran once before there were other people who needed the field.

Also, she obviously doesn't understand my "flip" out to the tunnel at the very end.  That's just something she has only seen a couple times, so we'll work on that.


  1. Don't be so hard on yourself and on Lexi. She looks fantastic for her age! You've done a great job with her.

  2. Thanks, Randi! I really do forget that she is a baby. She's honestly better than Bentley at a lot of things!
