Agility and the Camera

The agility trials at the Rose City Classic, were the perfect place to practice with all the settings on the camera. Spectators cannot get too close and no flash can be used.
Perfect setting to use zoom and anti-blur.
I still got some blur...
This German Shepard, belongs to Wyatt's agility instructor!
Look at her go! (Barking the whole way!!)
'Tory' won four 1st place, one 2nd place and a 4th place in the international jumpers course and qualifier for World team tryouts.

Such a great family event!
One of these days, we will get the perfect shot!!

Until then...FUN FUN FUN.
Note to self...go fetch purple tunnel out of the garage and practice more!
Wyatt's Mom


  1. Pictures are great!! Mom bought me agility stuff and I'm afraid of it. Hope tom try it again this spring!

  2. Wyatt is eye candy. He doesn't need to work himself up to a sweat. He's adorable.

  3. Look at all those pups go! That is a cool tunnel, Wyatt.:)

  4. Those were really good pictures. Mine come out SOOO blurry. I originally got Riley in hopes of competing in agility with her but then we found out she has hip dysplasia. Bummer. I love getting to see agility pictures and videos on other people's blogs!! The last picture was the best though... :)

    Elyse and Riley

    Woofs and Licks,

  7. Oh what a wonderful set of pictures! It looks like everyone is having a great time!

  8. The pics are great, my favourite is the first one, apart from it being a Border collie I love the way its positioned, there is a sort of determination about it.

  9. The pictures are just beautiful!! Thanks for sharing them! Lots of love, Holly and mom

  10. Whoa! Those were some super great pictures of some awfully pretty dogs. But the last picture was the BEST one!

    Wiggles & Wags,

    PeeS. Thank you for coming to my Commentathon pawty. Gosh, it sure has been a lot of fun!

  11. It again, has been waaaaaaaaaay too long since we've visited and have looked through all the posts on this page, most about the cool Portland show we'd love to see! So thank you guys for bringing it to us! We think every agility shot is a winner - especially the one of YOU! And we were sorry to read about Cooper and hope he's doing better by now - please give him pats for us! Thanks again for posting about this show!

  17. Great photos but Wyatt is the best !
    Love from Bella and Ollie

  18. BabyRocketDog is amazed that you go into and through the tunnel Wyatt. She is afraid to even put her nose in a corner, much less a tunnel!
    That agility stuff is something I'd be good at though!!

  19. Mom is always telling people the same thing - agility is fun for the whole family! Isn't is great to see so many different kinds of dogs being agile? Love the photo of the Afghan weaving!

    Brutus & Carmen

    Hmmm... I guess agility is not my thing!
    Kisses and hugs

    Love ya lots,

  24. Great shots!!! Um...I want a purple tunnel!!!! :(
    Maybe we could dig a hole under the fence and I could use my tunnel to visit the neighbors??? Yeah great idea! What do you think Mom? She left to go get more coffee Sigh.

    Waggin at ya,

  25. Looks like you enjoy your purple tunnel Wyatt... Wonders if I cans gets one of those? It would be a great place to hide from the hoomans when they makes me mad.
