    Talking Birthday Wishes & Agility Excitement!

    My lil' boy turned TWO on Saturday!!

    And tonight we start our first Agility Training session! I just can't wait to get started with Agility.....no idea if he'll have an apptitude for it or not but I know he LOVES to run and play and fetch (he has always had SUPER high ball motivation....much more ball motivated than treat motivated....we can get him to do almost anything if there's a promise of "fetch" at the end....maybe we'll have to look into fly-ball after agility!!

    Our first session is without Cinder....it's strictly an introduction to clicker training. We have never used a clicker as a training mechanism with Cinder before. Anyone else use this for training purposes? Do you find it effective?

    I know Cinder will be VERY excited to be in a new venue with lots of new friends.....hope he doesn't spend the whole night doing this -->

    How fun!!! Hope you enjoy the agility ... I'd love to do that with Lucky sometime.

    Lucky has done clicker training and it is a really effective method - they tend to pick things up a lot faster with the clicker.

    Happy birthday wishes for Saturday
    I'm sure Cinder will love Agility. Minnie-May started her training a couple of months ago and last week we run our full first course. I trained her using the clicker and it has really helped. When I started Cinders on agility some 5 years ago I didn't use the clicker and I think the training did take a bit longer. I've got a super picture of Minnie going through the tyre which I'm going to have a go at uploading soon!!
