Easy Practice

I didn't have a ton of time today but I wanted to do some agility.  It seems like Jonah's been getting a little bored of simple obstacle practice, but last month I got carried away with courses that were too complicated.  I wanted him fast-fast-fast, I wanted the course fun, and I wanted it short.  Here's what I came up with:

Yup.  I know it's really easy, but it hit the spot.  Jonah was great and fast and didn't put a foot out of place.  Good boy.  I want to keep the serp up for a few days and keep practicing.  It's not difficult and he doesn't have any trouble with it, but for some reason I don't feel like we've been seeing them much lately.  We'll also be able to play with some threadles and distance work with this setup.

Jonah's weaves have been spot on lately.  I've been giving him some tough entries and he hasn't missed.  His speed through the weaves is not as fast as he can do, but he's still moving pretty well.  I may put a jump after them to get him driving away.

In other news, I put the A-frame up to 5'3" which is the CPE height.  He's still nailing the box 100% of the time, so I'm very pleased.  I don't want to put it up to USDAA height very often because I still want him getting a lot of repetitions and I think 6'3" is pretty heigh.  I don't want extra stress on him.
