    DefaultSophie's third run at our first AAC trial

    AAC is the "big guns" in Canada -a very competitive league, and for whatever reason, I get extremely nervous about running in these trials and Soph consequently checks out (you're acting weird mom, so I'll go visit the ring crew instead)

    But this was our third run of the day, and we were able to hold it mostly together and you can see the elements of future success here: YouTube - DSCN0180.

    Course time was 64 seconds, our time was 112.55, with 83.55 faults. Onward and upward!

    I can definitely see the stress behaviors in Sophie. Sniffing and scratching. Keep on keepin on there girl!

    I can see signs of your stress too
    watchibgn the dog n front of you instead of being focussed on your dog


    handling note for discussion maybe (NOT directed at Nancy) on the opening jump to aframe - which side would you start on? I'd do both depending on dog with Brody I would run exactly where Nancy was but I would have sliced the first jump to put him on a much straighter line for the frame .. with Sally I would have been on the right side and wrapped her around me to the frame ... with Thea I'm not sure which I'd have tried - probably set and run to the right ...

    nice rear cross after 4th obstacle, nice teeter, nice table, nicely reset for the weaves and I love the choice you made to keep going with the tire - she didn't see it all - the tunnel shot her out past it and she was happily running along with you - very nice running and jumping past the gate

    Good discussion Brody! Yes, I would've sliced that first jump too and I might have done a lead out push so I could more easily be on his left.

    I agree that was a nice rear cross after the 4th obstacle. Nice sequence of obtsacles toward the end.
