Grace and I went to the LRCGD Match yesterday and we tried Pre-Novice obedience for the first time (all on leash) and got a third place (no scores) and a comment from the judge that she has a good foundation started! We also tried Rally Novice and got a 2nd place with a score of 92. I think that judge was being "nice" because I was painfully aware of her mistakes (and thought we should have lost more points!), but for the first time she did awesome, I was proud of my knucklehead!
Thanks all. We will probably try a real run in May and see how she does.
Grace is like the youngest kid in the family who has to live up to her older sister's Straight A's. Maddy is a dream. She is easy to train, remembers things, and is eager to please. Grace would rather be chasing squirrels! LOL
