6 months of Lulu agility training

We started our agility training with Lulu from March (she was 5 months) once a week, 2 months later we added one more training to a week.

She has been excellent student, I do not train home enough but somehow she still knows what to do :) In handling, she also have to learn how to read my mind, cause Im not very clear :)

For now we try simple handling, finally she does tunnels, we are in the medium high of the see-saw. and our running dog-walk is low plank. 

Here are some videos from our training.

Here is 2 months agility training (04.05.2021), one of the first times outside and trying to do multiple obstacles:
