LOL, she started this a few weeks ago but I always forgot to bring my video camera. Tonight I remembered. You will see from this that she is now starting to take commands from my 6 yr old, not greatly but then again neither of them are very foccused. She can do this drill for 20 mins solid, up and down, up and down. Our next trick is to try and teach her to jump thru hula hoops, and probably I will put her into some agilty training, if I can find a kit cheap enough and can teach her on my own. This is such a great way to end our evenings for all of us, she sleeps better and longer, and its fun to watch her do this for as long as she does it.

So have alooksee and see what my girl does for fun lol. she does it on ours here at home but she needs help getting up ours so it becomes a drag to lift her up for as long as she likes it.

She is doing much better with training and it has been a week since she has run away last. Mind you when she is out in our yard we keep the long leash on and if she goes to run I just step on it to stop her. Its been 2 days and I haven't had to step on it once.

if your in the states Petsafe has a shute and weave poles clearence priced at 20 each from a hundred
Ruby is adorable! My kids watched this video like 3 times and still wanted to watch again! We loved it! Now to teach Tynker Toy that!

MCM! I just went to pet save and got the chute and weave poles! Thanks for the tip!!!!!! They will be perfect for tynk and zoey, I think the chute is small for Ki-ki and I looked, it did not say regulation size so maybe there are bigger ones. But I got these 2!

is it possible to teach her to do agility on my own? it can't be that hard can it? I think she would really thrive on doing it, she loves to do stuff like that. Yes it is wonderful to see my 2 girls coperating together, even if it isn't perfect Ruby is starting to listem to Jilly and Jilly is starting to show some genuine interest in how Ruby behaves.

It is possible, but suggest that you take at least an intro class for agility, since they teach you the right way to do it, this makes it easier and less confusing for you and your dog as without it you may start to make some bad habits that would not work in the actual field. Good Luck!

Seeing Ruby and Jilly together reminds me of growing up with my little toy. So cute! It looks like they are both having a blast. I think you will have a lot of fun doing agility with her.

VERY CUTE....poodles in general are extremely easy to train.
I don't think you should have any problem teaching her to do agility by yourself. I've seen many books showing you how to teach them agility step by step - you should be able to find it at your local library. And like Mandycasey'smom mentioned you can get really cheap agility equipment... or you can build some yourself.
