    DefaultThis Weekend

    Happy Friday everyone! Anyone trialing this weekend?

    We seem to be in a little trial season. This weekend, we have a C-WAGs trial and it is only one road mile away from my house!

    Saturday, we are trying for Level 3 Obedience. This includes:

    • An off leash heeling pattern that has a right turn, left turn, pace changes, about turn, halt a 360 and a 270.
    • A drop on recall
    • A Directed jump
    • Go Out - Sit
    • Find Front (you call them front from a 90 degree angle)
    • Retrieve over the broad jump. This is similar to the AKC braod jump excersize in open but we place a dumbbell on the floor for them to retrieve. It sort of helps prepare for that open excersize.
    • Signals-Heel, stand your dog, leave your dog, down, sit, come


    Sunday is Rally. He are entered in level 1 and 2 Zoom rally. Zoom rally is rally without the sits and downs. We are also entered in ARF which is Agility/Rally/Freestyle. It is basically rally with a some agility components such as a tunnel, table and side switches. The freestyle component is that there may be an area called "handler's choice". The handler has a list of 4 things that they will do and they give that to the judge when they enter the ring. This is subjective, it is scored based on difficulty and performance.

    C-WAGS stands for Canine Work and Games. It is an alternative venue to AKC. They allow all dogs to register and compete. The focus is on positive interaction between handler and dog. Although the atmosphere is very relaxed and "happy", the judges do expect the excersizes to be performed correctly. In C-WAGs, there are 5 levels of obedience, 6 rally classes, there are several "games" classes and they are now working on adding agility.
