Last night we had agility class and Scout was introduced to the chute or collapsed tunnel. He runs the regular tunnel just fine and with plenty of gusto, but this was quite nerve racking. He kept trying to dodge out of the barrel and it took some work to get him inside. Once he did get the guts to go into the barrel there was no stopping him from running down the whole chute. I wish I had video, it was like a red (the fabric is red) lump cruising at full speed to push his way out of the end, about 12 feet long.

So now we have tried all the obstacles with the exception of the teeter, just about 5 minutes there and it didn’t move very much so that will come with time. Now it really comes down to my handling and body language to teach him where he should go and not go. Marcia thinks that I might be ready to try a trial in the winter…We’ll see…
