Initially I struggled with Delta's toy drive, his attention span was very short and a ball would only hold his attention for 30 seconds. He had no interest in tugging whatsoever. I spent months purely working on his toy drive and attention. But it all paid off. Delta qualified into the highest grades in Agility. He has never been the easiest dog to run, often following his own head, rather than trusting my judgement. Due to his small size and sqaure build, he has always struggled with the jump heights. It is because of this, that I retired Delta from formal competition. He still does enjoy his informal training sessions on lower heights and under less pressure.
Some of Delta's achievements:
- Qualified into the highest grades in Agility and Dog Jumping.
- Various QC's in Agility
- Qualified for the South African Agility Championships all three years that he was entered.
- Qualified for the Gauteng A Dog Jumping team twice
