My human is so hopeless, she can never find her way anywhere so I took the lead and showed the humans where to go. Once in the doggie school building I woofed a quick hello to the trainer and then headed straight to the double doors leading into the class room. I was so keen to start my class that I ran straight up to the arena where they keep all the agility equipment.
My Second Class
Our trainer is absolutely pawsome. She told us that Bella and I already know this agility stuff, and her job is just to teach our humans how to ‘handle’ us, whatever that means. To prove her point, she borrowed me and showed my human how to steer me around three jumps placed in a triangle. No problem – I jumped them perfectly and in the right order *waggy tail*.
But then it was my humans turn to ‘drive’ and boy was I embarrassed. She had strict instructions to stay within the triangle and simply throw the treats where I needed to go, but she was suffering from some sort of confusion, or lets call it stupidity. She threw the treats too soon, or too late, and I got really confused and ran up to her instead of across the jump. It took her ages to get the hang of it.
Bella’s human got it straight away and of course Bella showed off, jumping perfectly. Nevermind – it was her third lesson afterall, so she was practically cheating! *Waggy tail*

Then we went to the tunnel and for some reason I had to run through it to get my treats. Anyone could see that the shortest route to the liver treats was not though the tunnel, but hey – sometimes a dog’s just gotta do what a dog’s gotta do!
Then it was Bella’s turn, and of course she ran through the tunnel perfectly on the first attempt. I realised then that she had been cheating more than I thought all along, watching me go first and copying my moves afterwards. Annoying little sister!

The A-frame was definitely my favourite. I ran and I ran and I ran, not even my stoopid human-driver could slow me down – it was pawsome!
I really love agility class – have you ever tried it?
