Malika has been doing agility the longest and is the most advanced out of our 3 dogs, mainly because she is the oldest, but also because she doesn't have to take time out for her season anymore. Malika works all equipment but is still working on gaining consistency in her weaves. We recently decided to have a go competing with her and before lockdown she gained her first placement of 2nd and her first 2 agility rosettes. She is consistently fast and we are excited about seeing her future in competitions.
Mara absolutely loves her agility. Especially the tunnels! Mara has done agility from a young age, starting in the Pre-Agility, through Foundation and into advanced classes. Mara can move at an amazing speed around a course and is currently working towards her weaves, tyre and seesaw to complete her equipment knowledge. She currently works mostly steeplechase courses including spreads, hurdles, tunnels and long jumps but also works touch contacts on full height A frame and dog walk consistently.
Kaizu has done agility from being a pup, starting his career in puppy friendly FUNdamentals classes, were he gained early confidence with startline waits, calls to hand, ground level contacts boards and wobble boards. He passed his FUNdamentals first time and attended Pre-agility classes until he was old enough to join the Foundation course. He has progressed quickly and is now working large courses with a range of hurdles, spreads, long jump, contacts and tunnels. He consistently works dog walk and A-frame at full height and is currently working on his weaves and seesaw to complete his repertoire of equipment. Kai already has a lot of experience of competitions from attending as a spectator at a young age with his big sister Malika, we are looking forward to attempting some competitions with him once lockdown restrictions have been lifted.
We are massive believers in 100% positive reinforcement based training. We believe it is not appropriate to use negative reinforcement techniques with any dog but Salukis being a very sensitive breed can become very nervous if negative reinforcement methods are used with them, so we think its is even more important to ensure our dogs are trained in this way.
