I have 2 succesful Agility dogs and want to share my tips!!
If you want to train your dog to jump, you don't have to go to a club! I did it on my own (yes I'm 11!!) with two naughty terriers!! It's taken me about 1 year to get this far, I don't regret anything. The sweat, time and pain (I fell over a jump onto a rake, don't ask!!) that I have shed. It's all been worth it!!
Tip #1: Vaseline, grease for horses legs when jumping, vaseline for dogs!! Helps them glide over the wood when they frist start, they aren't gona clear the first jump they go over without knocking it!!
Tip #2: Fish, feed your dog lots, it's good for joints!!
Tip #3: Don't give up, one of my dogs has had the Autumn off because he fell going over a jump (result of approaching in wrong!) He is now back in work and is making up for his time off!!
I have loads more tips, but they haven't gone across my mind!! I will add them as soon as they do Hope this makes you interested in Agility!! x
