New Video

Well finally I have had a chance to get a bit of Video of Hex at training....I'm really pleased how he is coming on. His contacts are still slower than i would like, but that is only because he is so keen to get it right. In the video you will see that sometimes I will quick release him so that hopefully it will encourage him through it quicker. He is starting to look happier on his seesaw, which I'm really pleased about, and as far as I'm concerned his weaves are fab!!!!! I've never had a dog who one foots through his weaves, so I just love watching Hex do them.

Herbie has found an extra gear (which is great!) probably 'cause i told him about his new collar! He is really fun to train at the moment. So only around 4 weeks 'till Olympia aaaarrrrrgggghhhhh!!!!!!!!!!!

Poor link (who at 9 years YOUNG went round training last night like a 2 year old!) some how tweaked his shoulder and looked a little sore so had watch from the side line......I don't know what i will do when he is retired, I don't think he will ever be ready to stop (bless him).

Well the house is coming along now, and finally I can sleep in my own bed now (after 2 weeks on the sofa) there is still a lot of mess, but there is light at the end of the tunnel. If I could find the camera I would post a picture, but it looks like it maybe lost forever in the abundance of MESS!

So any way here is the latest video.......

Hex looks great, weaves are fantastic. What made you decide to go with 2o2o as you were training running with a hoop initially weren't you? Just interested as running contacts seem to be a bit of a hot topic at the moment lol
