Dog Agility Training: My first ever full course!

October 26, 2015

Chihuahua Dog Agility Training: Woosh!

Dear friends today I have a very special post to write. Mommy and I started my agility training a few months ago as you know. I love the rush I get from jumping and tunnelling! My lovely teacher invited Mommy and me to join her and my buddy Lucky at a special Sausage Dog Agility group to practise what I’ve learned in a full course! It has equipment and obstacles I have never tried before but my teacher had confidence I could try them out. We went to the lovely country side on a glorious day where I met many new Dachshund friends!

The course was really quite big in fun colours and there were lots of distractions. You see I’ve never been in such an environment before. It was tough for me to concentrate at first-I was very nervous and scared and forgot how to do everything! So Mommy put me on the lead and slowly lured me around. I was apprehensive of the dog walk, which I’ve never done before and jumping through the tyre was new too. But after a couple of goes I started to feel the enthusiasm again and yippee it was fun! I was jumping high and even tried the upside down V for the first time. I wasn’t ready to complete the whole course off lead as the distractions were too much for me. I ran off a few times to see what the barking dogs in the nearby kennel wanted. So for now on lead was fine. Mommy was very proud of me.

I would like to thank the organiser and her sweet friends for having me and for taking such lovely photos! Enjoy the photo gallery. I look forward to seeing you all again soon. Chilli xxx

Halloween Shopping with Mommy: Dog blog fun!

Dog blog Selfies in the changing room!

Halloween is coming soon so Mommy and I went to this lovely shop on the King’s Road to look for a costume. They had lots of fun and novel bits and pieces to create a cool outfit. Mommy asked me to try on her headpiece so that she could get a better idea of its look. “Yes”, she exclaimed “that’s the one!” You’ll never guess what outfit Mommy chose in the end-hint it’s not the tiger! Thank you Ad Hoc for a fun shopping experience!

At the same time as having fun the shop was a great opportunity for Mommy and I to work on my training. There were lots of people and children and a big black dog so it was the kind of environment that could set off my reactive behaviour. Mommy was armed with my treats and she did concentration work with me. She asked me to “watch” her and do my favourite beg. Once or twice when Mommy wasn’t looking I managed to squeeze in a bark at a child and one at the big dog-naughty me! Overall Mommy was very pleased with me-she said I did really well.

Dog blog with a job: coffee time!

Chilliwawa dog blog having a coffee

Dog blog work day starts with a coffee!

I’m feeling all grown up as I’m having a coffee before going to work! I applied for some internships after my plumber apprentice training went so well! I went to this lovely dog friendly pub which I will mention in my dog blog soon. I thought a double expresso might be a bit much for little me so I had a herbal tea instead. I’m so excited about my day ahead and all the new things I will get to do. Wishing you all a lovely day! Chilliwawa xxx
