When introducing young puppies to the agility tunnel, it is vital that they be put on a very strict training regimen. While out at Julie’s place, we always observe the rules and approach training with a no-nonsense attitude.
Alta-Tollhaus “Brody” (B-litter Dux x Pala) and Ava (A-litter Ypsilon x Maika) being supervised by Cadence. Cadence is an agility goddess. Her name is longer than mine. U-CH V Alta-Tollhaus Cadence SchH1 KKL1a CL1-H. The puppies are in good hands…
OK class, pay attention. This is an agility tunnel. You go in one side, and then… hey… you two… no that’s not… hey!!
Ok, now back to work. The agility tunnel can be compared to the “tunnel of life” from the Zen master’s study of inner… hey… Brody, Ava!! No that’s… stop fighting on the Zen master’s life… I mean… wait… Brody!!!
PLEASE STAND BY… THIS STATION IS EXPERIENCING TECHNICAL DIFFICULTIES…
And we’re back. Now… the tunnel can be compared to… no guys, you go THROUGH it… not over! You.. the entrance is… now wait…
Well, at least you’re not on top of it anymore….
Class… it’s not the Zen master way to bite your fellow students… don’t make me call Cadence over here.
Finally… Cadence herds the puppies into the tunnel and we have our Zen moment.
After a long day of self-contemplation and his place in the universe, Brody sneaks up on the guest bed. Please don’t tell Grandma Julie.
We are still refining our training techniques. Remember, strict rules and a no-nonsense approach will produce results every time.
(P.S. All pics were shot with my cell phone. I didn’t have time to run in and get my camera, so sorry about the blurs. It’s tough to capture puppy jaws in motion when they are chomping at a bajillion miles per hour).
No puppies were harmed in the making of this instructional tutorial.
