Today saw the second round in our agility club's Winter League. Like last time there were two courses. In the agility round (jumps, contacts and tunnels) we got 5 faults again for a refusal. This was because Rufus was 'going on' so well that I couldn't keep up with him. He turned round to see where I was and missed a jump! Note to self.......get fit! Lol
In the jumping round (just jumps and tunnels) Rufus did brilliantly and were soooooooo delighted to find out at the end of the competition that we got 2nd Place!. :jumping::jumping::jumping:
Here's a pic of Rufus and I with our 2nd place rosette. We are stood next to a jump set at the height he has to jump as he is classed as 'Large'. This is only the 2nd rosette we have ever won so I can't tell you how chuffed I am. :D:D:D

Congratulations!
I'm going off the idea of agility - I didn't realise you had to do so much running around too - thank goodness you don't have to jump or crawl through the tunnels!
I'm so frustrated, I can't find anywhere that does puppy agility, or the next stage obedience. I'm going to have to make it up myself - should be interesting at the Olympics :D

What a shame Ali. I'm going to have to teach myself the obedience bit for the Olympics too. Have you got a decent sized lawn at home? You can get some good agility practice kits online. Avoid the Pets at Home range - didn't last 5 mins! I got 4 jumps and a set of 6 weaves on ebay from 'Jump for Joy' (they also make horse jumps). They're really good quality. I still can't use them in my garden as I haven't got enough lawn, but I sometimes take them to a park or to my in-laws when we visit.

Oh well done Karen - you must be thrilled. Can I just ask - is the jump you are standing beside in the photo the height that Rufus has to jump?
Yes Mandy, that's the height. Most mini Cockapoos would come in at medium height which is two cups down ...... or third one up from the bottom. Trust me to have a gigantic Cockapoo!

Ali it is surprising what you have to do, Weller took to agility like a pro, I how ever struggle to remember to give direction on the way round, the names of the jumps and tunnels leave my head and I end up a wheezing embarrassed owner being jumped all over by her dog at the end......he always gets there waaay before me!!!Oh and I can only work right handed:eek:
Poor Weller, what chance does he have?!?!?!?
