Maura To The Max: Training Around Kitties

I told myself that if Maura is going to be an agility dog, she needs to be trained around very distracting things. So yesterday I took her to my neighbors backyard, where there are cats walking around all day. I was surprised at how well she responded. Maura saw the cats and even was 2 feet away from one and didn`t chase it. Here are some photos from the training day!

                                                                     Kitties?! Where?!

Maura`s First Competition!

Adios! I have to train now!

Well, the agility lesson (It was more of a friendly competition) was interesting. Maura didn`t get along magically with every dog, so I was pretty bummed about that and wanted to leave, but the trainer told me to stay. Also, Maura was barking up a storm, and the trainer showed me a way to keep her from barking. I`m so glad she told us to stay, because Maura ran one course pretty well, and I was proud of her. The second course was called "Impossible Tunnels", and let me tell you, it was CONFUSING. On the "Impossible Tunnel" course, Maura and I couldn`t figure it out, so I just ran her every which way- I think she had a lot of fun on the last course. She did zoomies like there was no tomorrow! It was a sucsess for her first time in a ring! I do have to train her with more distractions and work on obedience with her. But I`m proud of my little munchkin!

Maura Competing Soon!


                                                               Love this photo of her!

Maura will be competing in the fall! finally! My girl is doing great! We are probably going to do a competition at a small agility center. She will be jumping 8 inches in JWW! I cant wait! She is doing the waves and jumps excellently, paying attention and is speedy. I am going to a little practice course run next week (hopefully). We`ll do good I bet!

Randomness In Maura`s World!

                                                       Sorry, I`m too gorgeous to look at you.
                                                                            What`s that?!
                                                                            Derp face.
                                                                     I`m all toyed out.
                                                                   I`m comin` for ya!
 Okay, back story here. I set up Maura`s kiddie pool and tried to get her used to it. I would put her in it, give her a treat and pet her. Then she would jump out. She didn`t like it. It`s weird, because any in-ground pool she will jump right into. I guess she just demands her own pool. So, I went inside to get towels to dry her off, but when I came back out...she looked like this. She was rolling in the dirt to try and dry off. When she saw me, she shook and loads of dirt came off her.
                                                     Dirty Maura! (look at her paws!)
                                                                    Clean Maura
Sorry, I have`nt been posting much because of homework, and other things. But here are some photos from the past couple of days!
