Heh. Don is using my equipment needs to get new toys for himself. He needed an air compressor, with all the handy-dandy accessories. He got it. Then he needed some thingy I don't remember the name of, or the use for. It was $200.00. Now, he simply must have a chop saw. Whatever-the-hell-that-is.
I"m thinkin' it would have been cheaper to buy my equipment. But... it gets him out of the house on the weekends. A true bargain.

I love my husband, really I do. I just like to keep him out of my house as much as possible.
Yikes. Check out NTI Global.

Free shipping. Cool colors, hold up well, yet not super heavy. It's a good thing.

Martha, there is no free shipping to Alaska. I promise.
Really? I don't know a clumsier dog than Rocky, but ... ground, heh. Are you using the fiberglass electric fence posts?

Thats cause you dont' know my kavik! But I was using some PVC pipes with long spikes in the bottom.

Spikes didn't work for me, either. The step-in fiberglas posts work well, though.
When Rocky's on his game, he really puts the weaves to a test. However I've described him here, his one and only agility concern is jumps. And speed to a certain extent.

Rocky sounds like a fabulous agility dogue despite his drug dependencies. Did he have jumping issues pre-seizures?
Kavik has so many concerns, I won't bother listing them!! But the one problem i was able to solve was knocking jumps. Its almost always my fault - stopping, changing direction while he is in midair. Stupid handlers.

He really is. I know exactly how to handle him - we never get off-course faults and rarely miss contacts. It only took me 3 years to figure out this dog after onset. The other week we got
3 Qs in the 4 runs in which I handled him (I was judging theother runs), including a Master's level Gamble.
Did he have jumping issues pre-seizures?

None at all - he had the typical Aussie jumping style: straight up, then horizontal, then straight down. He had no problems jumping 26", even doubles and ascending spreads.

That's the only time Friday knocks a bar - he's so reactive to me that my timing has to be nearly perfect or, at least, communicate the next 2 or 3 obstacles ahead of time.

How does he do with other people? Does he look for you?

That judging thing going well, or is it stressful?

Its nice he still gets to compete. I will thank you on his behalf!!

Thats very BCish, isn't it?

His first run with someone else was a Standard round. I'd asked the person who'd dog sat him the weekend before while I was out of town. He was perfect for the first half of the course - and then he saw me. And wouldn't leave me.
So we did a tag team and I ran him for the 2nd half of the course, calling faults as I did so. Hilarity ensued.

After that, he was always looking for me. Friday ran fairly well for others, though he got a lot of refusal penalties because he kept checking in with me.

Judging is cool - some stress making sure my courses met the specs, but that'll improve with experience. The trial itself was fun, though.

Many BCs are very reactive, yes.

LOL! Did anyone have a video camera? Cause I have a capture card.

Poor confused fellows!

Can you still trial there? We have (thank goodness) a couple of feet of snow.
