    DefaultDOCNA agility trial this weekend

    Had a great trial this weekend. I started DOCNA to allow my lab to have more fun and get over her weave pole issue and my aussie to get more ring confidence. Maddie got three Q's. Two 1st and one 2nd. She was the fastest dog in jumpers of the entire class. She completed a jumpers course in a little over 18 seconds. Panda went 5 for 6 Q's. There was a scribe error so she should have been 6 for 6 Q's. She did great with all the testosterone in the ring.

    Very proud of my girls. A very fun and successful weekend.

    Congrats on the great weekend.

    What is DOCNA? That's a venue I've not heard of. Is it like CPE?

    DOCNA is Dogs on Course in North America. Run very much like NADAC used to be. Big flowy courses. No weaves in jumpers and lots of games. There is Trigility-a nested jumpers, standard and gamblers course. Three dogs compete in this as a team and each one runs it's respective course. Two types of gamblers, snakes and ladders, and the North American Challenge which gets you into their nationals. It's also alot like ASCA if you have ever competed in that. Very fun, low key. They allow you to train in the ring.

    Panda the trial before last was really flipped out by all the boyscouts as bar setters. It seemed that there was a bar setter by each contact obstacle. So Panda would jump, do the tunnels and then run past the contact to avoid getting close to the boyscout. So I trained in the ring. I babied her up a contact obstacle and then when she completed it I petted her and told her what a good girl. She loves affection more than treats. I did this with all obstacles on the course and took the NQ. The next standard run-no problem. They will allow you to train any obstacle or all of the obstacles if you do so in the SCT. It is great venue for beginning dogs and dogs who need to gain confidence.

    Panda is in AKC open. I am not ready to move her up. I wanted to allow her to gain some confidence and DOCNA is definately the place to do that.
