Hello my name is Zephyr Clarke-Dolberg in Miami, Florida with Miami Dog Training. In this clip we're going to talk about agility training for dogs. Now agility is a great way to burn off, dogs that are hyper, to burn off their energy. It's an amazing way to really establish a working relationship with them where they're off leash listening to commands and they're really enjoying themselves. It's really a great activity for most dogs. Not all dogs are really prone for that kind of thing, some of the heavier wider breeds with less kind of cat-like balance wouldn't be so good for that, some of the more heavy footed breeds, but some of the dogs like the Australian shepherds or even this dog right here and he's fantastic at doing jumps, he loves to jump. So I'm just going to show you a little jump. And when we goes over the jump I'm going to tell him over, right? So that I can then translate that at some other point to me over anything, over or jump or whatever it is. So whatever word you're going to use, you want to be consistent. Come on Bullet, over, over, good boy. Lots of praise when he does the jump and what you want to do if suppose he knocked the pole off, I might give him a little good boy but not as much enthusiasm when he goes over it nicely. Once again this is Zephyr Clarke-Dolberg with Miami Dog Training.
