Sorry for the lack of posts!
Well we've been away nearly the whole of August at various shows (I will post videos, pictures and results later!)
We've had a great time away, the dogs have been great, and we've had A LOT of laughs!
Now I have to actually do some hard work to make up for the time off....so here are the next few months plans....
I'm away in Wales looking after my mum's over October, so from the 7th Oct - 30th Oct I will be available for private agility lessons up there.
The following will be held at Many Tears Animal Rescue can be found at
11th October-training day covering course handling and analysing, motivation, contacts, weaves (entries) and obstacle discrimination.
12th October-Pre-competition training. For dogs who are almost at the competition age. Covering weaves (channel available), contacts, motivation etc
the following will be held at Indoor sand school. Chafford Farm,
22nd November-grade 5-7 training day. Covering course walking/handling, contacts, weave entries and motivation
29th November-Taster Day, for people and dogs who have never done agility.
30th November-Anju Agility Simulated show.......This is a fun and friendly show open to all abilities……at our show we encourage training in the ring, and will allow you to use food and toys!
The way it works:
You will get 2 goes at the same agility course and 2 goes at the same jumping course, which means you can train one round and go for the next if you wish. All the courses will be set at a “nice” level.
If you use toy’s or treats in one round that will be classed as a “not for competition round”, if you do it without aids then there are rosettes and prizes to be won!
If you wish to run your large dog over small or medium that is fine (we are very chilled out!), but to keep it fair on the smalls and mediums competing you will be not for competition.
It will be judged as grades 1-4 small, medium and large and then 5-7 small, medium and large.
Open to dogs 16 mths and above.
There will be tea, coffee and cakes available.
£10 per dog (four runs) 10am start.

4th January 2009-Anju Agility New year show-as before
