We are working on speeding up my run backs from the box at the moment. So I did loads of run backs to a tuggie.
What you do is wait...
Then zoom over the jumps...
And catch up, grab ...
and have a good play with the tuggie.
The idea is that some flyball dogs are mainly motivated by getting the ball and then slow down running back from the box. So introducing a tuggie to run back to improves your motivation and speed.(apparently)
We also did some work on my swimmers turns. As well as turning you also have to catch the tennis ball that is sprung out of the box when you hit and trigger it.
This is YouTube video taken at a recent Flyball tournament of us turning. There are clips of me and the rest of my team in real time and then again in slow motion. Its fairly easy to spot Black and Tan me and little Chip.
Aren't we good at it !
After all that exercise I think I need a bit of a rest !
