Agility News Friday – Homage to Snow

In the last couple of months, Jaxon & I have become absolute Agility Nerds. Pretty much now we have a structured training week, and we have as much fun as possible during the week, then celebrate by hanging out with the pack at Club & putting practice to purpose.

In following lots of puppies all over the world, and learning lots about many different styles, handling methods and simply having lots of doggy fun, I’ve noticed a lot of doggies in the snow.

Snow is something Jaxon has never seen first hand, and I think how lucky we are to have such great training conditions pretty much all year round.
Sometimes the heat gets us, and sometimes we are down on a rainy day – but snow is something else.

As a Formula1 and Rally fan, I liken it to Ice-rally. It’s crazy (yet cool?), and we’ve enjoyed watching some of these crazy dogs and their handlers in action.

So for those who don’t have the luxury of a heated indoor training facility, here’s a few of our favourite videos in homage to some awesome doggies doing agility in cold and snowy conditions.

I wonder what type of shoes this handler is wearing – probably need better grip for the snow!

In this one – keep an eye on the handler trying to keep warm out there!

Gotta love this doggys’ enthusiasm! What drive!

And finally one from OMD – those crazy Fins! They are also very good at F1 & Ice Rally!
