Well, we did it! Our first time in the Open A class and we got first place! There were 7 dogs entered, all showed, and 5 qualified. It was a tough competition and we finished with a score of 196! We lost 1.5 points on heeling, none on DOR, and small deductions on ROF, ROJ and BJ. Our trainer's other student took a second place only 1/2 point behinds us, which I'm sure made our trainer proud. Her other student qualified as well (no placement). It was our first Open A for all three of us.

Ditto that - the scenery is spectacular!Originally Posted by labby
Congrats!!! I am jealous! Maddy did not do her BJ and then laid down on her 3 min. sit. The rest we did really good on, and probably would have had a good score. I think 2 in the first 8 Q'd, so your class seemed better prepared than us. We seemed to be a band of misfits. We had a Visla that never would sit on any heeling. 3 dogs walked THROUGH the BJ (Maddy was one). 2 laid down on sits. What a bummer.
I am happy for you guys!!!
WTG Tatyana and Scotty!!!!!!
Love the "bloo" ribbon :P
