Mum’s crazy idea with a ladder

I’m used to mum coming up with some interesting training ideas but think she lost the plot this morning…

Came home from our walk and she got out the ladder and a couple of random boxes from the garage.

Had me walking (well was trying to make me walk but I kept running) back and forth through the gaps in the ladder.

Why? She is trying to get me to have greater awareness of where my back paws are… Hmmm I know where they are… I use them for scratching my ears.

But this knocking the bars with my back legs when I am jumping has here scratching her head so she is trying different things. After taping us doing some runs on Saturday she is trying to find it out… Hehe… Sometimes I knock them when I am going slower and doing tight turns and sometimes when I am going really quickly on a straight stretch. Just keeping her on her toes too.

      It has been a hot topic today with mum consulting some agility and rally friends. End result is that everyone seems to agree I have no idea what my rear end is doing… I think there are some fun training activities to come. Training Tip Tuesdays are about to get fun (after we do recalls for you tmw Ruby)
