Feeling Sad

Tonight was our last agility class with a trainer that we have been with for about 3 / 4 years. The facility is closing which also made me sad. Sasha has been going there since puppy kindergarden. She was the first Havanese they had trained. She totally won over the two owners and her agility instructor. The facility is closing due to Larry's death and in his memory I will just say "and praise a gooood dog"! She was the first dog in Larry's 20 years that was able to "free" the meat from the mouse trap without setting it off. that was when Larry told me you need to keep this one busy with a job or she will get herself in trouble!! Just needed to share a little.

So sorry to hear about the death. You will find another agility class or place...just keep looking. Maybe they can recommend another facility or have they thought about doing smaller classes in the future. It is really hard to quit something....give them time to grieve....maybe they will have second thoughts and start the agility class back up again.

It sounds like Sasha needs some more fun to keep him busy and out of trouble. In the mean time, Sasha needs to stay busy.

Sorry to hear you lost your Agility facility. This is just such a wonderful thing to do with our dogs and when you find good trainers they can become so important to you. My dog LOVES his trainer and gets more excited when playing agility than anything else we do. I too hope you will find the next wonderful trainer soon. Just a thought, for a busy dog who can unbait mouse traps, (: I bet Sasha would love food puzzles like Nina Ottosson's. Amazon and others sell several different ones.

Laura, those are so cool! How about posting a video of your dogs using them, in a link of your own?

That's a good idea. I've given them to friends as special presents, but my dogs are just finally getting them, for Christmas. I'll try to get some pics or vid.
