Re: [luckey] Agility at Padang Merbuk
[In reply to]
I say man...you and Luckey should have been there at the agility training..Mr. Adom Lee and Mr.Chew from Singapore were really helpful and patient with the gang. Apart from Amanda's Ben Ben, most of the doggies there were all begineers to agility...some of them seeing the equipment for the 1st time.
Oh boy did we or did we not have fun that day..you should have seen some of the doggies reactions. Before the training, they were quite apprehensive about the dog walk, jumping, tunnel, A-frame etc. Afterwards ..with lots of patience and encouragement from owners and supporters..they were all doing it like pros..(well, okay-lah not exactly like pros but at least they are jumping, walking, climbing, running like never before!)
We dragged out the dog walk, A-frame, hurdle, tunnel, table and weave poles.. One by one, Mr.Adom Lee and the other trainers showed us how to encourage and handle the doggies to complete the exercise. Personally, I was very happy that Pepper conquered her fear of running thru the tunnel. The evening finished on a high note with Amanda handling Ben Ben thru the complete course..showing us how it is done. Ben Ben started by running thru the tunnel before doing a 180 turn to the dog walk, another 180 turn to the hurdle, A-frame and finishing by doing a fantastic weave thru the weave poles! It was an inspiration to see them performing the routine.
