    If you have 10 seconds to spare maybe you would like to see Merlin whizz around the course:winkgrin:

    I'm so pleased with him, he now zips over the dog walk and seesaw and his weaves are coming on well, though I still have to concentrate on his entry and exit. And look I am standing upright! Lol!

    I would like a little more speed, but I wouldn't exchange it for the accuracy we are getting

    Looking good!! I can see the difference, he is a lot more confident. I actually think he looks faster than the last video too. :yes:

    I remember you saying about the standing upright in your earlier posts, before I was doing agility and lo and behold, now it's something I have to remember to do :lol: but you seem to have cracked it!

    Well done you and Merlin!

    Thanks all!

    Tabitha, he has improved on the weaves a lot, he nearly always hits the correct entry, but he still likes to pop the last one on occasion!

    Julia, I had to be really strict with myself at first to stop from bending down:lol: As Merlin has grown in confidence it has helped as well. You are right, he is faster on certain bits and when I am running with him I feel like I am going like the clappers!

    He is a LOT of fluff! On displays the dogs wear little coats to denote team collars, I had to find the smallest one for Merlin and when I put it on it was so funny, because the coat fitted his chest and made him look like he had a cotton wool ball for a bum:lol: He is big for a 'British-type' sheltie, however:wink2:
