Crash meets agility?

Crash has done a very small amount of agility. Like, very small amount. We did a little work with offering a jump and then some one jump work at 4 inches back when I first got him (it's been since at least June since we've done that) and I took him out today thinking I could do some jump grids with him and he just wasn't ready for that. I think his brain was rusty, maybe.

So I went back to offering one jump, then some lead outs with that one jump and he started to get it. We need a lot of work yet, because everytime I verbally praised him with more than a "yes!" (so what I often say is "good boy" or "nice man!") he was getting really wound and nipping at me. So we need to work on that.

Circle work went well. He was really responsive and only nipped me a couple of times (only on the right side, so clearly I need to work the right side more).

At least I know now what I need to work on. He's gonna get a session or two a day for the next little while. He's entered in a fun match (haha!) on the 24th of this month, so ideally I'd like him to be able to handle doing some start lines and maybe a short jump tunnel sequence.

We shall see.

No video today. I'll try for tomorrow.
