Unicorn - Last Unicorn: Glow



Hello fellow Sheltie lovers. :)

I am the proud owner of a 1 year old Sheltie. I haven't started performing with him yet but, when he's old enough, I plan on doing Agility and, probably, Obedience with him. While I wait for him to be old enough to begin Agility training without risk to his joints, I'm enrolling him in obedience classes and working toward a CGC.

On the advice of one of my obedience trainers, I've started walking Edan through the rungs of a ladder to (in her words) "teach him where his hind legs are". It was also suggested that I could start working on Weave Polls and Tunnels with him because they are low to the ground and don't involve jumps.

I'm open to any advice people with much more experience than me in these areas.

About my Shelite:
Name: Casia's Pistol Pete "Edan"
Color: Mahogany Sable
DOB: 17-Aug-2006
Training for CGC
Goal: Agility and Obedience competition.
