Re: Howard Weston

I can only echo what others have said. Howard was a true gent and an amazing character and agility shows in the north of England will not be the same without him. Condolences to his family.xx

Re: Missing the first jump

I would always have the first jump set lower, so that it becomes a habit for her to jump it. When she is consistently jumping it at medium height, then you could try at large, but with a second pole set at medium. If you find she runs under again, then go back to medium. Also - make sure you ar...

Re: Hello, I am new and in need of advice please

Can't comment on any specifics in that area, as I live a long way away. :) However, any trainer worth their salt would be more than happy for you to go along and watch, which is obviously the best way to select the club/trainer who you feel would suit you best. It is always worthwhile choosing a...

Re: Epileptic Spaniel - monitoring device??

It looks quite large but worth asking.

I still think a baby alarm would do the job just as well - unless you're a really heavy sleeper. :flowers:

Re: Epileptic Spaniel - monitoring device??

If you're in the house, i.e. at night, would a baby alarm not work to wake you up?

Re: Agility on a bike....

Brilliant! You would have to have really good verbal commands, but I will maybe have to work on this for my next dog :)

Would love to see some video. How on earth would you cope with something like a pull through?

The video with Que in it was taken in early May. She just turned 26 and she and I just celebrated our 25th year together. She is doing fine now and what ever ailed her 4 years ago has not returned.


That's good to know :)

Re: Weaving method?

Your weaves really are amazing, though Breeze would manage to do the first one or two with me well out of shot.

Re: sniffing?

If it was me, I wouldn't like to put anything strong smelling on my dog - just doesn't seem fair to them when they have such sensitive noses. I would just continue to work very hard on focus - rewarding often in training (with whatever floats her boat - food or toy) after very short sequences. If ...
