This was one team outing Corona, our Dogo Argentino, and the other dogs in our team loved to participate in. We dog owners took our pets, big and small, to the Centennial Dog Park where we battled only mosquitoes.
Although our Dogo Argentino among other dogs were not up to their usual rambunctious selves and we’ll never know why. There was a lot of sniffing, some exploring, many introductions and overall a pretty fun evening.
We now know what works and will have to arrange something again real soon.
From her first attempt to one of her last, Corona, our Dogo Argentino, sure made us laugh on a sunny afternoon at the cottage.
Setting up, for the first time, her complete obstacle course took more time than realizing she just didn’t have the energy to put her all into it. Corona was walked through the weave poles ok, was more than happy to sit at the pause box, quickly trotted through the open tunnel and ecstatic to sit again at the finish line. Only she couldn’t quite bring herself to make it past the first obstacle with gusto.
Catching her many attempts on still and video camera this Dogo Argentino will always be remembered for her jumping ability. Giving her some credit, she did swim tons already that morning and the day before so she was pretty tired. And, as can be our luck, she was vibrant the next day after we took the course down.
Maybe next time we’ll start with the course and reward her with a swim!
