Today we got the notice - Gimme met the requirements for her All Dogs Parkour Level 3 title. We are both having so much fun with this. I love the creativity aspect of finding ways to use a single location in twelve different ways. So fun. Of course Gimme loves just getting out and do, do, doing.
For Level 3 we had to do three qualifying entries:
ADP-L3 (a) video - We did this video on the Chehalis Trail between Pacific and 14th Avenue. Gimme and I walk there 2 or 3 times a week.
ADP-L3 (b) video - This video was created in the upper ballpark area of Little Baseball Association park. There is another section of the park for playground and picnic use and we will do another video submission there someday.
ADP-L3 (c) video - Our third video for this title was done entirely in my yard. I had to submit a revised video because I made a mistake, so I was lucky it was this one. It only took a few minutes to go outside and shoot another video and I had it turned around (and title confirmation) in about two hours.
We will definitely be going on with this, but probably not until after the first of the year. And come Spring I'll get back to training toward our Intermediate IDPKA title. Some of those behaviors are a bit trickier, so I want to make sure the equipment we train on isn't slippery due to rain or ice.
Also, I will start teaching Parkour at Pawsabilities in late January.
I'm looking forward to it.
