Recently Maverick came to visit and over Memorial Day I had gone to pick up the new agility training equipment that I had ordered. This is a contact trainer which is half dog walk and half mini a-frame and the idea is to use a home sized piece of equipment to train your dog on their contacts. Well, I had been working Sage on this for a couple days and with Maverick over I decided to play. After just a few attempts he was getting the idea. Such a smartie pants! He sat down as I took this picture but I thought it was fun for both dogs to show how awesome they are! And, they really are! :)
Of course, once we went inside both dogs totally passed out. This is just one of the things I love about doing agility with Sage, it wears her out both mentally and physically!
Sage and I are going to attend an agility clinic to work on our skills and thoroughly wear both of us out. It's mandatory to have a crate so the dogs get some down time during the breaks and at lunch. Well, all I have at home is a wire crate that isn't even mine and that's heavy to bring to something like this. So, my instructor recommended that I go pick up this lightweight, portable crate at Walmart for use at the clinic. I got her the X-Large size for the low price of $26.88 and even better it's pink!! Here's a picture of the cat getting crate trained... he is always the first to try any sort of crate!
