    3 pooches in class –  ;D
    Jack Russell (I think) Retriever Cross of some sort (I think) and Nooch Pooch  🙂

    So got lost finding farm  ::)  Stressed a bit  ::)  Jumping up on me a lot – doing that mum what are we here for, is it okay, mum is it is it.  Who are these people.  Anyhow settled in.
    Started off with A Frame – Nacho sniffing like a mad dog (not the alcohol  ;D) All very reward the good etc.  Feeling good about it.  ;D
    Managed to do the A Frame from down position (so he will start slow and finish slow to get contact areas) and finish in down.  ;D
    Did jumps.  From stay to over middle one (1st and 3rd) still on ground.  Doing lots of stays and waits to keep control.
    Tunnel – easy peasy as have done this with Nacho before.
    Felt good in all.  However Nacho is going 100 miles an hour Retriever 30 miles and JR 10 miles.

    Trainer (Carol) said he is very enthusiastic.  ::)  ;D  Yip that be Nooch Pooch  ;D
    We are allowed back next week – he is going to be sooooooooooo good at this.  ;D
    And everyone commented on how handsome and magnificient he is.    ;D  :-*
