Here is a link to four VERY short videos of my two Australian Terriers running around the deepest doggie luge track to date.  The walls of the luge are so high, its like the dogs are running through a super long tunnel in that they cannot see me for most of the time they are running.   This winter has been ridiculous re: snow storms but luckily for Jake and Lil, they have a servant who is willing to shovel out their luge track again and again and again to give them opportunities to have some fun outdoors.

That almost looks like fun!  Except for the shoveling part.  While I think my pups would love it and do well, I'm REAALLY glad I live in Texas where we don't have to try this  ;D

I love it! What a great way to practice your distance skills even with all the snow!

Thanks for watching everyone!  Jake and Lil seem to appreciate my efforts... or I certainly wouldn't shovel out that luge track Over and Over and Over....its snowing again as I type (sigh).   Anyway this is the 3rd year of doggie luges and Jake and Lil seem to get into the game more and more each year.   Plus once the snow melts away.. and the prop fades.... they will still run along the luge path (slightly visible as worn grass) as long as I support their paths.  At that point it is just like running agility without a single obstacle in sight.  BLAH BLAH BLAH. :)
