The Webcast Kids have made an episode about some things you can do to help take care of your dog. What other things do you do to help your family care for your dog at home? Post your answers in the comments section!
When you teach your dog to do the dog walk, teeter, and A-Frame in agility, it is very important that she touch the "Contact Zone," that big colored area at the beginning and end of the obstacle. This is a rule that was created for safety, so your dog won't fall if she gets too excited about her run.
There are lots of ways to teach your dog to step in the contact zone. This woman has set up a ramp for her dog, and is clicking every time the dog's foot touches the contact zone that she has marked off. She is probably giving the dog his reward off-camera.
Don't forget: you always need to give a reward every time you click! Can you set up a little ramp for your dog in the yard? Tell us how it goes in the comment section!
