Sometimes it’s tempting to skip vital training exercises to get on to the fun, exciting things, like tunnels or contacts. It’s work making things like weave entries or more boring things fun! Work on your perceptions of agility activities. Your dog may find some things naturally rewarding, and it’s up to you to make other things just as much fun!
I try to make boring things fun by keeping sessions really short and high energy. I don’t give myself or my dog an opportunity to get bored. I bring out the best treats or the most fun rewards (like a thrown ball or tugs.)
What is your favorite exercise to train? How do you keep exercises fun and fresh?
