Now that Jilly's ten months old she can start doing a bit more than straight grids and simple bends. She was starting to get bored with the same thing and so I gave her some easy circles to do. We're still using the puppy bumps but this time they're arranged in a circle. We can start and finish anywhere in the circle and this is great for training. It gets rid of the idea that there's a finish jump and so the dog keeps working until you say stop. Here I've also used a low pole. It's set at 15cm and so is well within Jilly's capabilities. Here's a clip of Jilly doing a simple circle.
Next we did an easy sequence laid out in a simple shape.
I used a tunnel to give Jilly a bit of variety and to make it easy for her. We had a bit of trouble with sniffing at first so I used a toy to keep her interest and so that I could throw it over the "jumps" at the end and keep her going on.
