Intro to Agility with Jade!

Jade got into agility! I have no clue if she will do anything, but she can be around other dogs off leash, so we are going! I had to give her training resume on more than one occasion and since she is under 3 years old I was praying they accepted her.

Here are some things I have been told to practice before we attend.

Sit stay
Down stay
Touch (hand)
Targeting (touch something else) like a coffee can lid

This document teaches touch but also moves into targeting

This video is what I don't want to teach, but it reminds me of targeting:

If we ever go out for a date and have a babysitter, the dogs MUST stay in their crate, even Jade.

This link/blog post makes so much sense. The dogs schedule is off, the baby schedule is off, leadership is not as strong=the dogs sense something is wrong and a bite could happen.
