Last night Abbey and I started our first competitive obedience class to prepare us for the beginner novice and novice obedience competitions in AKC. There was a black Lab and the rest were all shepherds (pretty ones, too!). Class went really well and we have a couple of new things to practice for next week, but Abbey was paying such good attention to me and was showing off her kick-back she does on her "stand" command. A lot of the other people in class don't even have a "stand" yet with their dogs, so Abbey was used as the example.
We have a competition this weekend in UKC to try for our URO2 (second level rally title) - we already have the RA (AKC's equivalent) so we should be alright. We are entered in four trials and only need 3 legs for the URO2, so we may jump into URO3 for the last one if we pass all of them. Who knows!
Abbey was wiped out after class last night - she barely wanted to eat dinner! Silly girl.
Good luck, it sounds like lots of fun!
