Grand Camp : Agility
Welcome Mason to our pack !
Our campers had a new equipment learning experience: The Teeter !!
Agility gives the dogs confidence and help them be more sure about themselves when they learn a new obstacle, jump, climb or run into a tunnel. They are learning to use their body and to overcome their fears.
If i were a dog, the teeter will be the most challenged obstacle. Not only because the movement but also for the sound! That’s why we started with a small-lower version of the real one.
This activity always help us to bond with our campers and develop a relationship based on trust. It is nice to see how they look at us like they were saying : “are you really sure i am going up and down in that stuff ? “ And yes, we do it together!! Each dog is different so we take our time to make them feel comfortable and to success with exercise.
It is amazing to observe how all the dogs improve their skills each time that we do agility and they seem to think is super fun!!
It is an experience that we share and enjoy and added bonus is that it makes their obedience training better and they Love It!!
And on top of all that we also have the whole fence land that allow them to run and enjoy playing with their fellow campers while their Spirit is Free!!

Exceptionally cute… one of your best!!! I loved the end when they all surround you, but most of all… when we saw each of their faces at the end up close and personal. A joy to behold.
Again such joy!!! 🙂
