Sound like you had a good time. Well done ;).
Greg Derrett. Most excellent handler. Nice bloke actually, spent many a drunken night and lunch time with him and his crowd (though he was a whipper snapper then, still good handler though).
Fame went to his head a bit a few years back I think, what with teaching abroad and training full time, charging big bucks and perhaps that is where the “knob” bit comes from. When people do well they sometimes forget that it is a priveledge and not a right to be good.. He set up a non KC rules agility competition circuit with his own rules if I remember right. Brace move, though not heard much about how it went. Not as well as EMDAC shows I reckon, or maybe becasue thats more my area?
Not seen his video but he is one of these handlers who usually has the best for his dog at heart, or at least he used to. You will not go far wrong following his techniques methnks.
Good luck and enjoy it.May 3, 2007 at 12:25 pm #79071kizkiznobiteMember

2nd week at Agility.
Now moved onto some chaining – two lots of hurdles, through the tunnel, another hurdle ;D He is so good at it. Show him once and off he goes. Learnt loads tonight about my tone and body language and how mudge it makes a difference.
Nacho is loving it. Very focussed. Trainer said “you have something very special there” – so chuffed ;D :-*
Was chucking it down with rain and still loved it. Everyone doing well. ;DMay 9, 2007 at 10:11 pm #79081*Lassie*Member
It’s great when you can do something together that you both enjoy, it will keep you both fit as well 😀May 9, 2007 at 10:41 pm #79082GracieMember
this week at agility for us, i wasnt there as had to work but daddy said gracies was a star! he ran the course off lead 2wice with her and she kept focused on OH all the time (this is a dog that loves to play with other, and just normally HAS to go say hi to all dogs) a 16 obsticle course and she only missed out the last jump!!!
it seems to be moving really fast, ie week 3 and off lead, but Gracie seems to love it so i’m pleased.
She feel off seesaw tonight just as the rain started slipped off, but he got her going over it again immediatly after, as she get a little spooked by thing, and she was fine!!
Glad Agility is going good for you too mudge :-*May 10, 2007 at 9:27 am #79083youngMember
