    DefaultAgility show results

    Well after three days of agility we only got one leg in novice standard. But on the really bright side we got a leg in standard novice and we ran the Novice jumpers all three days with no wrong courses and only NQing for droped bars. we have only been jumping 24" for about 3 weeks now. I finaly fiigured out how to control her start line manners and we seem to have conquered her barking when I leave her in a crate at a show. We had our best run yet in novice standard with no faults and 14 seconds under time even though i was making her hold her contacts extra long at each one. We tried FAST today but we kinda crashed and burned at the very start. we took out a jump Not just the bar but the whole jump. So I figured we better stop before we killed ourselves..lol I have trials the next three weekends so hopefully as we (actually I) work out things we will be better. One thing I have learned is Agility is alot harder than it looks. I thought that I would have a big advantage going in because of our obedience background, but it isn't a big help at all and I think some things from obedience have even made some things a bit harder.. But both of us are still learning as we go and are still having a blast doing it..

    Kelly and Amber

    HA! Been there, done that. Nothing like having a dog doing 30MPH constantly trying to get to your left side. I'm lucky I still have knees. It will all click for Amber soon. Murray switches back and forth between agility and obedience easily now.

    Congratulations on the leg! ;D

    I will be at the shows on the 13-14 and 20-21, but only with my Excellent dog so I'm not sure if we'll see you guys there.

    At least the obedience training helped you develop a good working relationship with your dog. Some people start agility training with hardly any prior training and have no clue why their dog is the only one who won't focus, won't stay with them off-leash, won't follow a lure, etc.
