Today was Training Troop's Aug Wee Wed Trial. Steeplechase and Master Jumpers. 2 years ago about this time Baxter and I entered our very first AAC agility trial (first dog performance event period) and got his first Q ever in Starters Jumpers.
It would have been nice to have gone to the trial, however, agility (trialing at least) is on a bit of a hiatus at the moment.
It's certainly amazing how time flies. It certainly doesn't feel like I've been playing this game for 2 years!
2 years of learning how play with my best little fluffy buddy in a meaningful way, to teach him, motivate him and to grow my relationship with my dog to where it is now. The changes and personal growth in the 2 years have been pretty amazing.
I was looking back on old emails, and found the one for our first dog class. 15-Jul-2009 started us on this journey. It's been an amazing 4 years so far and I'm so lucky from a "pet dog" person perspective to have found positive training and gotten onto a better track.
I couldn't have asked for a better partner to learn with either. Thanks Fluff. <3
