What a great day we had (my students and myself).
Ruger again Q'd with 1st in FAST for his TITLE! Then he was just not very interested in running Excellent. He gave it a try, but the pep wasn't in his step. It's hard to admit, but I think he's just slowing down physically. It's okay. I'm okay with it, but he's such a wonderful boy, it's hard to see him getting older.
Remington was so wonderful today! In our jumpers run he did jump #1, jump #2, tunnel #3, jump #4 (YES, he did tunnel #3!!! played just a smidge and came out when I called him!!!) continued on course, we dropped a couple bars and if I remember correctly he got sucked into the 2nd tunnel but came out and we were able to complete the course (I have video I'll post later on Monday night from work).
In the Novice Standard course he did the tunnels!!! He got sucked into the tunnel, bypassing the weaves, but since he came right out of the tunnel I was more than pleased. Pretty sure we made the contacts, its all a blur because I'm so happy about the tunnels!!! but again I have it on video and will post it later. No Q, but he did the tunnels!!!
My secret weapon today was... Jack Mackral (Fish). I remember Dana saying about upping the reward for dogs that aren't all into the game. Jack Mackral STINKS but Remington loves it. Lets just say his attention on the line was on me the best it's ever been
I also kept him outside with me a LOT today, letting him socialize and play and have a good time. It really took the edge off him and he was much more settled to play the game.
Back tomorrow for more fun
Sounds like a great day..congrats to all
It was a fun day. Really was. Capped off by taking the judges and AKC rep to dinner. I love doing that, they have the best stories!!!
Good boy, Remy. Tomorrow will be even better. It's a wonder you didn't have a bunch of stray cats coming for the mackerel. LOL
