I showed up to class a little early on Tuesday to see if Rugby could generalize his “go around” trick to something a little more familiar than an indo board. I used Bourbon’s legs as our posts and had Rugby practice going around her front legs and her back legs one at a time (Thanks so much Bourbon for holding your Stand/Stay like a champ). Once he got the hang of going around her legs I asked him to keep going and to do a figure 8 with his new obstacle. He was a little unsure at first but he did pretty well and got around a couple of times before he cheated and went in between her back legs.
We have a new and exciting tricks class planned to start for the first time at the end of this month. Keep checking back here and on the Trick Training page for more info!
