    I’ve enrolled Finnie in a Canine Conditioning Fitness level 1 class...just wondering if anyone has done this? You can actually earn trick titles with this class by completing all the training exercises (you teach the dog). It sounds like so much fun and I think Finnie is going to love it! He’s been missing me a lot lately and with his hock (the clicking has been gone but I thought I heard it again last night) it’ll be perfect for learning and teaching him things like fit paws, peanut, balance beam, treadmill and more...all this only level 1! We were incredibly lucky that a spot opened up...they filled right away initially. We have vaccine ‘passports’ here and those who aren’t vaccinated can’t go to certain places. The person who initially had this spot decided not to attend because of this. Their loss, our gain! Personally I’m much happier knowing everyone else has been vaccinated

    Wish we had something like this here, it looks like a blast! And a terrific alternative for dogs who can't compete in other, more active venues. Look forward to hearing more about it.

    That’s exactly why I jumped at the opportunity to get him into it! It’s a late class (745) and other end of the city but it’ll be nice taking a dog that doesn’t get car sick!

    Thanks Gloria! After I give Blueberry a bath I’m going to a local hardware store and buy what I need to make a cavelletti ladder for Finnie. I’ve got the plans to build it (out of PVC) and my hardware store will cut it for free. Once I’ve taught Finnie I can teach the others as well!
    Here’s the plans for the ladder if anyone else is interested in making one.

    I hope Finnie loves it...and yes, maybe his little blue sister could follow in his paw prints...but tell her if she does she is not to outshine her big brother!!!!!!!! :)
