Today was our first training session with Dave Munnings at The Dog Training Barn. I have trained with Dave before when Ember was competing and he was fab, it was the best training day we had done, I just think Dave's way suits me and he seems to be really clear in how he is training. So when I saw these young dog sessions advertised I put my name down straight away.
We had a great day, learnt a lot and realised I really need to go back to basics with his drive and forward focus - am going to get the Q Me DVD out over Christmas. I was really pleased with Sweep's focus though as despite it being indoors and a bit crazy and loud at times, it didn't blow his brains. Sometimes I forget he is only 9 months and still a baby - he doesn't seem to have grown a lot the last couple of months and seems mature for his age.
I love the Dog Training Barn as they provide plenty of crates to put your dogs in, you can have a sit down, make yourself a hot drink and it is all indoors - plenty of space for big courses. Not far off junction 11 of the M40 so it is dead easy to get to. This is what I call civilised agility and I like it! :)
