Beginners agility training

Sadly I had to step down as Phoenix Flyers beginners trainer.
I have totaly loved working with all my beginners and they have come along great this summer
Here is a video of one of my beginners running their first full course on one of my last training times with them
Cola, I am very proud of how far they have come
and  a photo from my Tuesday night class - great group of dogs

But as one door closes :) although I am sad to be leaving these guys it has very much given me a boot up the backside to get an exciting new project underway. May take a little while to get off the ground but - watch this space

A-Z needle felted dog breeds - Miniature Schnauzer

<< this book was the thing that got me into needle felting in the first place. The little felted Schnauzer caught my eye, it dropped into my shopping basket and from that moment I was hooked.
Every now and again I have a go at making Schnauzers because they always make me smile

Dog agility contact re-training

Here is stage two in retraining my dogs the 4 on the floor contacts

I am training them to run to the mat and lie down on it, hopefully facing in the direction they were traveling and not curving back to me. I think that bit will be difficult but I will keep working on it.
At the moment Ben seems to often have a nice striding pattern down the contact running all the way down with good seperation between his back paws - so that looks good for a possible running contact eventually
Mia I will have to work on more, she is going down the contact but the last step her back paws are together and she is jumping onto the contact mat - but still getting her contacts
