Oh yay! I'm glad you decided to participate. :) I hope we can meet up soon so I can get all caught up on Philip. I didn't know he was doing agility! And competition ready? That's impressive! I'd love to see him in action. :) Where are you taking him for training?

Are you free for any mini meetups this month? I should make some time to post something on the meetup website...

Philip said...

Yeah, we haven't seen you guys for a while now - I haven't been able to make it to the big meetups since they have been pretty far and had to bail on the last mini one because it was just so hot that day :(

He started agility just a couple of months ago, but he is amazingly good at it! I don't really think he is competition ready, but I mostly want to take him to one to just see how he likes it and what he needs to improve on :) Plus he will hopefully be more ready by the time we go (I'm thinking sometime in Fall).
I took him to a local trainer that we did obedience with, but I'm going to switch to another lady that does competition training and is familiar with Corgis - I'll tell you about her next time we meet.

Hmm, next weekend in Mother's Day so I'm not sure it'll be a good turn out for a mini then, but I should be good for the weekend after (16/17).
I'm also thinking of going to the beach a couple of times this month, before it goes on-leash for the summer :)

Ju said...

Yes, I would love to hear about your new trainer! I'm actually going to be busy next weekend too. I think the 16th/17th is a great idea! I'll try and post something on the meetup site if I ever get online at home.

Awesome! I went ahead and made a post to see which day works better for others :)
