Since achieving our goal of getting Luna comfortable with the agility equipment at The Zoom Room, we decided it was time to challenge our little Penny. We had the opportunity to rent the gym for a half an hour - affording us access to the agility equipment free from the distraction of other dogs. Penny’s initial reaction to the equipment was much more reserved than we were expecting, since she's the more adventurous and bold of the two girls, but you can see from the photos that she really enjoyed herself!

Penny: "Mom look at me, I am doing it!"
Yes, she did it! Penny is clearly a pro at walking on the plank (was she a pirate dog in a previous life? Hmmm...).
We did spend time running the girls through the tunnel, having them climb over the A-frame, and weaving them through the poles, but it's safe to say that we spent the majority of our time walking the plank. There was just something so amusing to us watching our little Dachshund walk up and down the high plank all by herself.
No time was wasted! When the girls were not on equipment we spent time playing our 'here-sit-and- stay' game.
