Thursday night is Mums fave night.  That is when Euan goes to his "Motivation n Focus Class".  As you can see all sorts of awesome stuff happens.   Here is Aunty Kelly and Little D demonstratin the correct position for lift off. 

 All the pups do lots of work and go back to their crates for to rest when they're not workin.   Euan waiting for class to begin.
 They are doing lots of fun stuff in preparation for later on agiliteez.   They can't be doing full on agiliteez & jumpin till they are 18 months cos their bones aren't properly stuck together till then.   I think us doggles are jez held together by skin, n fur n bits of whatever sticky stinky we have rolled in for the day till then.
Hunter all lined up n ready to go.

 On this Thursday night they did start getting used to the tunnels which can be a bit scary.  There were bits of chicken flyin from one end of the tunnel to the other.  With an enthusiastic doggle hot on its heels.
  I now am retired from all this malarkey n happily watch from the back of the Border Terrier Taxi.  Mum does occasionally deliver me a bit of chicken for sittin so quietly.   Hah, I have her well trained - hopefully I'll train her to put the back of the cab down in the middle of winter while they're out there freezin their paws n fingers off.  But hey "roast chicken"?  I can't ever recall that bein on the menu on my Tuesday night trainins.  You should see how motivationed I could a bin with a bit of roast chicken.  Whats the deal?
 Denzil getting all brave in the tunnel.
 Hunter demonstratin 4 paws on the ramp.  Ready for the big A frame in the future.
 And Euans BFF in class.  Ping.  They do spend lots of time socialisin  n stuff.
This weeks homework folks.   Savin the werld.

Well ok so we're just savin the werld one back yard at a time startin with our own.   Noodle wraps as a start to learning how to jump and wrap straight back.
Pole dancing.    A combination of Agiliteez n Heelworks to Music, not sure how that's gonna go down with the judges.
I have no idea what you want me to do so I'll just lie down.
Trainins for Euan are now a lot of "shaping" rather than bribing luring.  So Mum waits for him to do stuff and then she rewards him for doin it and he learns it much faster.  Well it does once he "does stuff".  The doin of stuff can take a while and Mum is havin to learn patience.

 Looks like a foodbowl,   tastes like a laundry bowl.
 Oh a reward,  so you want me to put my foot in it?
 Mum actually wanted him to eventually climb all four feet into it but the bowl had a wobble so we abandoned that idea.  Gotta get the props sorted first.  It's a learning curve all round.
 So he went back to his fall back trick.  Perchin.
 Ok better hand him over the chicken.
As only one of us gets to do trainings at a time I was tied up while Euan did his stuff.  And paw on furry heart,  I have never done any perch work or tricks on a platform.  When Mum tied Euan up and got me out to do some tricks I went straight over to the perch and stood on it.


  1. Iz all lookin like ard werk for a relax terrier like i-self Bodee my pal…I leev it all to yoo an Yooun

  2. We do that shape training too and I get so confused. I do everything I know and then sometimes just lay down. But agility is the best! I did special puppy agility when I was a baby. All the jumps are right on the ground and no zooming around until you are properly glued together.
