    DefaultOur first agility leg in our first show!

    Well we managed to qualify in standard, but knocked a bar and had a wrong course in Jumpers. We also tried FAST and had a qualifying score in that, too bad its not an offical entry till Jan 1st. We had one run-on in standard so we ended up with a 3rd place ribbon. I ended up doing running starts because I could tell she was way to wound up to hold a stay. We will work on those where I can correct as needed. Our contacts were horrible she was not getting two on two off for most of them so I held her an extra few seconds at each one. Even holding her the extra time on all the contacts we were still more than 10 seconds under course time. Thanks for all the encouragement for my first show. And yes it was totally a blast and more fun than Obedience..lol

    Kelly and Amber

    Congratulations! I saw your JWW run, Amber is an AMAZING dog! With just a little bit more control I think you guys will be a really really competitive team ;D

    And I have to put in a good word for you on the off-course in Jumpers ... that particular section was HARDER in Novice than it was in Excellent, because the angle of the previous two jumps had the dog going STRAIGHT towards the tunnel, and there was more distance between the weaves and the jump in Novice so the dog couldn't see them as well. They were both icky courses for Novice. A lot of the usual Excellent people had young dogs in Novice today and we decided that these courses were a lot harder than they were when our older dogs were in Novice.

    Because I am too lazy to make my own thread, Dusty got a double-Q, 4th in Standard and ~15 points, Boo had an off-course in JWW that was my fault and in Standard I don't really remember what happened, but his contacts are falling apart (in the past couple months he hasn't seen a contact outside of trials, so he's starting to lose it a little).

    yeah we ran the JWW course in 32 seconds with me stopping completely when she went off course through the tunnel and then waiting for her to come all the way back to me and then finishing the course. I know we could have done the course clean in 27 seconds. I just need to learn how to do control and maybe better plan out my crosses. Learn where I am going to be able to get into position and really need to work on distance work!! And this agility stuff is a blast!!!! Why didn't anyone tell me it was this much fun 20 years ago?!?!?
