Jet and Agility

So I’m very happy to say that Jet seems to love agility! Well we didn’t do much.  🙂  I took him over the dog walk slowly, with it loaded with treats, and he seemed to really like that.  He also ran up the teeter. We held the tipping end so it wouldn’t go down.  We’ll do that slowly too. Heck, he’s still a baby.  He’s only 18 weeks old!  But he’s so smart and he learns so fast. I think I am totally, completely, and utterly sold on this breed.  Wow. He’s like an old soul.  He’s so smart and calm and he loves to do everything.

He also went through a tunnel and he loved that too. My trainer and friend are developing a wonderful puppy training plan for him. I need to go read over Nancy Gyes blog too, she has a 5 month old puppy she is training.

Jet already knows off (hop off me), boost (jump on me), sit, down, stand… and lots of other things! He also is learning how to stretch on cue… he’s so cute. When he wakes up or comes out of his crate when we are training he stretches, so I tell him ‘Stretch!’ and he does it again right away for a treat!

I just adore him. My other dogs are, I will admit, a bit jealous. But Jet is a puppy and does need more attention than the older dogs. They will be okay, and they still get lots of exercise and time too. Maybe they need some orlando vacations to make them happy… or heck, maybe I need one!

  1. He has already tried most of the agility obsticle when he still was in our home here in Sweden. I think he and his brothers had real fun!
    I present the pups to try the agility obsticle when they are real small, in that way they find them familiar and fun. If this is familiar, climbing on woodstocks and rocks in the forest and so on – they won’t be afraid of any obsticle in the invironment when they have grown up to mature dogs. (Sorry for my SweEnglish! ;o))
    If a pup is presented to various things, and is having a nice time when he/she is doing that – then it won’t be any problems when he meets new things when he/she is older.
