Results From Our Third Open A Trial
Well we went back today (sunday) and competed in our third open A trial. I thought she did a bit better today, but as we finished the groups they called out the qualifier numbers and didn't call ours... I thought she must have done something on the groups so I asked the steward on the way out of the ring. Turns out the judge just called the wrong number..lol we had a Q. Turns out we had another 195 and a 2nd place. The person we beat in the run off yesterday had a 197 today.
Amber went 3 straight in getting her title with scores of 197, 195, and 195. Not bad for my Novice A dog. I entered her three more days as back up, so I guess I should try and teach her a decent front and to practice heeling a bit more. Then I guess I have to train for Utility. I am going to have to get her used to people touching her and going over her, that is going to be the toughest thing for her.
Thanks for everyones support and advice. I have learned alot by paying attention to every thread on this board (obedience).
