Recon's OB Debut - 1st & 3rd in Pre-Novice
My husband showed our almost 2 1/2 year old lab at the YABTC OB Trial this weekend in Pre-Novice. He did very well. On Saturday he was in a run off which he won for 3rd place and on Sunday he took 1st place with a 198.5. We laughed about his being in a run off at his 1st OB trial. On Saturday he lost 5 points because he did a Utility Stand for Exam finish on the Recall rather than a straight front. My husband hadn't realized the Recall would be on leash so he hadn't practiced the straight front but by Sunday he had corrected that. Recon has a lot of enthusiasm for whatever he does so the trick is to keep him focused. It was new place and of course a show has a different atmosphere and Recon was able to handle all the excitement well. His instructor says he's coming along nicely.
