Front Foot Target For 2o2o

This position was originally taught on a box and then transferred to the dog walk, but it was never as solid as I would wish. If I stayed behind Ruby often couldn’t complete his task.

    Nice to hear from you again! I didn’t do a lot of agility this year, focusing more on racing, but next year I want to do more agility. Hope to read more of Ruby and Java.

    How wonderful to “see” you…and for me, just the right video! My 5 month old Airedale puppy and I have been working on the skills for agility contacts…foot targets…and we are ready for this level in the process. Thank you, and may you find more and more going well in 2016. ❤

    • A puppy! I need to get on the FB more! I’m sure you’re having a blast. It’s great to hear that the video will be useful 🙂 Happy new year to you too!
