Our agilty class closed
We received a email yesterday morning that our drop in agility class is closed. They moved after the store they were using closed for good. The new facility wasn't the best, but workable. They are still going to do drop in at her home, but the time of day doesn't work for me.
We have been going for the past year +, and have some good days and some not so good days. His weave poles are his strong point, but doesn't like to leave the ground on the dog walk. The teeter and A-frame are just ok. I know it's partly my fault (not working in the cold this time of year) Not sure if I should give him a break until spring, but still working at home non-formal. He turned 2 in October, and is starting to act like a nut sometimes, (more than normal) almost like he is testing my patience. Maybe I should focus on obedience during the winter and focus building games for him? Any advice would be great.

Cheryl, I think that sounds like a great plan. I know from personal experience with owning a young Doberman that it helps keep his mind sharp and manners in check when I keep him active in some type of training. Im on a waiting list for our next agility class so in the mean time we are doing ob and tracking. I'm really bummed out about taking a break from agility though because it's my favorite and I think Prime's too.
Train, don't complain.
