As an aspiring agility dog Riley needs to be able to control those back legs so the ladder excercise is a great way of practising her leg co-ordination!

I have a short video of her practising.

If you try it but your dog doesn’t seem keen then try putting a piece of food between each rung. If they are still unsure then practice with you sitting with your legs out and they walk over your legs.

If your dog is confident then use something to make the ladder higher on one end so it is a bit more challenging for them. When you do this raise it slowly and bear in mind how big your dogs legs are!

Remember to praise your dog every time you achieve something.
