Discovery Monday – Getting in the groove

What are we going to play today?

What are we going to play today?

It’s a beautiful thing when you really start to click with your dog as a team.

I’ve been training my dog for 4 years, 2 .5 of those consistently and through club, and then starting Agility. Over that time I’ve learnt a lot about being a handler, owning a dog, opening my heart, patience and persistence.

Mostly though, I’ve been given the greatest gift of all – unconditional love.

No matter what, Jaxon loves me and works so hard to get the right behaviour – even if his goofy handler sometimes gets it wrong.

Recently we’ve had some amazing training sessions, and it makes my heart jump with joy as I really start to get the groove with him as a team.

That is a journey all of us handlers are on. We won’t feel it every day, we won’t feel it at every trial, but when we get it right, it’s a feeling you can’t believe.

Like flying. For me it’s like swimming with dolphins – ‘cos it’s an endorphin rush. You are connected by your body language and the dog is working with focus by your side.

If you haven’t tried it – you really should!
