Emilu got her first Q in Open today!!! This was our 5th try. Gave up entirely last year to focus on getting our RAE. I was going to give her 4 more tries. Her heeling was not pretty AT ALL - judge took 15 points off and I don't blame him one bit! But she really did pretty well on everything else - obviously did everything, and on the first command We got a 178.5 and took third place because only 3 dogs Q'd. It was first legs for all of us - we were just beaming !!
congrats..*G*..very good job
Yea!!!! In Open, I was told years ago there were 69 ways to fail. Emilu didn't find one of those, so you have every reason to celebrate!!!!
O wow! Big congrats! Open is hard!! Like you, heeling is always our nemesis. We are focusing on that a bit more these days.
It was smart finishing RAE first. It is hard to try to do rally with obedience together. Rally, you can talk and gesture all you want. I never want to blow a Q, so I do what I have to to qualify. Dog gets used to that.
Congratulations on that Q! When do you try for leg 2?

Neat...good job on all the hard work.
