    Low level parkour!! All we got for now. Did many reps. I think we have some on the list we can check off. lol He started limping after this :(, but I think he had fun. [video=youtube;KxMFXhxvvCk]https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=KxMFXhxvvCk[/video]

    It's us again lol. I'm addicted, but his body can't handle it so I need to control myself. Did a short step up and he didn't want to anymore at the end. I'm pretty sure his back is bothering him. He's pooped now!! [video=youtube;eYgOtCXxE6Y]https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=eYgOtCXxE6Y[/video]

    Aw, looked good though! And a really pretty place for a walk. Your little dog might be a good candidate for parkour, unless he's as dumb as my little dog, lol......only wish I was kidding. Have yet to teach her to sit.

    At least Mutt knows sit!! He comes pretty well unless well yeah unless lol. Mutt has bad knees/hip or something. One day after an off leash run/walks, he didn't move around much for 2 days and he was hurting when I picked him up. Otherwise he's a little firecracker.

    Jamie, did you ever hear back about Yogi's title? We just submitted Rhaegar's Novice title stuff.

    I haven't yet... I know it can take about a month, and someone who submitted their's shortly before me just heard back. I am very impatiently waiting!

    I really like Hector's backpack. What brand is it? I want to get one for Sage.

    If you mean Hector's harness, I got it here. The little blue pack is just a poop bag dispenser I got from amazon. Zippy paws or something like that. Buy today Light Weight Walking Pulling Nylon Mastiff Harness

    Just got the email! Yay, Yogi got his training title!!!! Samantha, you will probably hear really soon; I just saw on Facebook they were behind because someone got sick. I am so excited, and now that it's warming up and the snow is melting we can keep training!

    Thanks, guys! But holy cow, just looked at the requirements for the novice title and it is a huge leap from the training title! This is going to take awhile, lol.

    Back at it!!! I finally went down to the playground and looked around. They had some cool things I could get Hector on. Today I tried this wobbly walkway and it was pretty fun. I knew it would be challenging for him as he has never walked on something like this and elevated - ha! Using some leash pressure to get him through it the first 2 times. A bit of struggle, but he got better at the end = gaining confidence. [video=youtube;ktP58pCnXN4]https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ktP58pCnXN4[/video]

    Ooooh, that thing is really cool! He hopped right up there after he got used it. 5+ inches of snow here and counting today... Good lord, why do I live here?!

    It's so funny he now hops onto elevated surfaces without being told. I stopped earlier to fix my leash and he climbs on a platform lol. Now I know what sjdavenport is talking about haha.

    Yay, congrats Jamie and Yogi! It took me at least three weekends to film everything correctly for the Novice. Good luck! We need videos of your progress. :)

    Nice! And cool object! I don't think we have anything like that around here, but it would probably give Rhaegar a heart attack anyway, lol. Hector did really well.
