agility news ... back to training

After a good 5 weeks off no agility, we are now back to agility training. The boys, both Saturn and Sizzle did very well yesterday. Saturn, for the first time in a long time has no hesitation over the DW, he ran fast and present me with a superb 2o/2o. I quickly reward him and released. He was very happy and he kept doing it the same way (I would not use fast but good speed over the whole DW and perfect 2o/2o!). I am EXTREMELY pleased with him! We still need to work on the A Frame. He is getting faster, the only trouble is the time he spent on the peak of the A Frame. He would not jump over the peak like Sing and Sizzle and even Sipzie did, he kinda crawled over it, and his down plank need a bit more encouragement to get to the bottom fast. We did some jumping sequences with difficult weave entries and he was good at it, he weaves fast and find the entry every single time!
Sizzle was also on fire yesterday. I think this 5 weeks off completely no agility do them good! He back to his usual speed (could it be indoor?), he did some very nice sequences and his see-saw has a massive improvement but towards the end of the training, I messed it up! Arrrggghh ... he was getting so excited and he leave the see-saw before I released him (the see-saw actually tip and hit the ground before he left) but I told him off, then when we did that again, he hesitated!! I have also noticed that we can do pull through even I am behind him!!!! How good is that?? Overall, I have a positive training session with both of them!! I wish every training session is like that!!

 why can't Saturn go over the peak like this?
