60 days and counting…

Hi Everyone,

How was your Easter… strange being at home for all four days and not out competing with your dogs? Karen & I tried to make the most of the nice weather and tackle some of our outstanding projects. Rhyme helped me remove an old rotten fence and tangled wire – he was mousing…


I’ve tasked myself with spending at least 30 minutes a day dedicated to Agility1st – a coronavirus incentivised goal. Success so far, I’ll need to keep it up for 60 days to create a habit, some way to go yet. However, I’m enjoying the challenge of learning code, refreshing my memory of the lessons, the grading process and I’m impressed that over 80 people have passed the programmes to date.

Since my last post, four more people are now progressing through the Coaching Programme, I’m expecting to carry out the first assessment this month…the race is on to be the first person to gain a Coaching Certificate.

We’re also ready to carry out virtual practical assessments for the Trainer and Instructor programmes. Students will have the option of doing this face-to-face, once the current restrictions are lifted or via Skype/Zoom; I’m looking forward to doing the first one which should be fun.

Remember, if you need any help please contact us and if you could check we have your correct contact details that would be great too.

Stay safe

Mark & Karen
