Thank you for your comments! I appreciate any help I can get.Nice videos, Lexipup! Welcome to the forum.
There's a lot you can do with a 10 month old dog to start agility training. Certainly you can work on targeting (I use a bathroom tile), which will help later when you get to contact performance work. You can also do plenty of flatwork and obedience drills (no equipment). For example, the heel work looks great in your second video - what happens if you take the leash off? I also liked the "stay". Proof it by pairing it with a piece of equipment and teasing the dog to make her break. A ball or other toy can also help with this. At this age, tunnels and hoops are great obstacles, but I'd worry more about fundamentals right now and leave the equipment for later.
I'm the resident disc dogger 'round these parts, so lemme know if you have questions. Here's a video of my dog Kit at a discdog club demo recently:
If I take the leash off, sometimes she pays attention and sometimes she doesn't. She hates to heel...a lot--so I try to do really short sessions (like 3 minutes a couple times a day...more than that and she starts ignoring me). Help on heelwork would be fantastic! Also help on targeting. I tried clicker training for the first three or four months of her life and she really doesn't seem to "get it," for such a smart dog. Any suggestions on how to train targeting without the clicker? (And yes, I really, really tried the clicker. I'm aware of how awesome it is and how it encourages the dog to think for herself. But she learns a lot faster without it).
Her stay rocks--I can jump around with a squeaky ball and run and yell and she stays put. I've put a lot of work into her stay--I just didn't include it in that particular video.
As for the obstacles--we were just at the dog park for the day (I live two hours from it) and she ran over and did them first. I just couldn't resist (even though I know that one day will probably ruin her forever). But hey, we had a good time.
