Flyball update.

Last Saturday I took Tess along to flyball practice again and as it was Vicki's Saturday off from the shop she was able to come with us which was good. Tess was much more relaxed than the previous week and so seemed to enjoy it more. Before we got finished she was jumping all four jumps, picking the ball of the practice ramp and returning  to me with it. There was netting down the sides of the jumps so there wasn't really much chance for her to miss out the jumps but she seemed happy enough jumping them anyway so maybe the netting wasn't really needed. I'm not sure if they put up the netting for her or whether it was there for some of the other dogs as one or two of them don't seem too fussy which way they return with the ball. I think for a puppy Tess does well and she can't even compete in the beginners until she is a year old so there is plenty of time for her to learn to concentrate on the job at hand.
