    DefaultNovice A -- First Place (Sunday)

    Yes, yes, yes!!!! We got first place today!!!! Out of 8 dogs, 6 qualified. So, it really was a hard competition today with many dogs and handlers feeling more relaxed on the last day and doing really well. I'm so proud of Scotty!!!

    Again, perfect stand for exam and recall and stays. Got 1.5 points off on heel on leash and figure 8. and 4 points off on heel free (he was lagging on an about turn and I gave him a command). So, with a score of 194.5, we got first place. The dog that came in first yesterday, came in second today (also a Lab; go Labs!).

    Ok, Potomac, here we come, be ready for us!!! ;D (I am actually very excited that we still have one more leg to get and that we hopefully will get it at the most spectacular Labrador show in the world).

    you can compete in Novice A for 60 days after you get your title(3rd leg). So to make a good run at the top spot in the country you enter every show you can possibly get to in that time. And of course you want to get the highest scores possible. Also you can continue to compete in Novice A even if you get a High in Trial. However once you get a H.I.T. in Novice B you can no longer compete in Novice. I didn't know about the national ranking for novice A so I missed a few shows I could have gone to with Amber. Since this is your only Novice A dog you are allowed this is your only chance to go for this ranking.

    Score - Points
    200 = 8
    198-199.5 = 7
    195-197.5 = 6
    190-194.5 = 5
    185-189.5 = 4
    180-184.5 = 3
    175-179.5 = 2
    170-174.5 = 1

    You can go to frontandfinish.com and look it up on the FAQ page. Front and finish is the magazine that publish' the results. Their ratings page is still down > but should be up soon...I hope. The FAQ page will give you info. Front and finish also has their own awards that you can qualify for just look at the FFX page.

    Don't forget she is also getting points for Delaney. She got either 9 or 10 on Sat (depending on if there were 11 or 12 dogs competing) and if the same # of dogs competed on Sun she got either 10 or 11 pts.

    ohh yeah for the Delaney system you also get points for Dogs beaten so if you place in Novice A then you get 1 point for every dog below your placement. They also publish the Delaney system in Front and Finish.
