Grace is my girl that I show, but she has shown some aptitude towards rally despite my lack of training her! HA HA We did a match recently and she got a passing score and 2nd place, but I didn't know if the judge was being easy on all of us....with the "new" dogs.
So we have been out on our driveway practicing...I even got some cones to practice Figure 8's and the Serpentine thing....she's doing pretty well. Nice attention. Little flaky, but that's just Grace. We have our first show 5/5 and I can't wait to see how she does.
It will be kind of cool to put a rally title (maybe even an OB title) on her since my trainer who I worked with back in CA before we moved last year was very doubtful about me getting this puppy. She knows the breeder but also knows my desire to do both show and performance, and kept telling me that Grace's mom was SUPER SUPER stubborn and Grace definately showed that to her as well. I still put all my wins in the newsletter of my old club (I still do the membership) and I know Wendy reads it...
Good luck. It always feels good to accomplish something that others doubt you can do! I'm sure Grace will do great.
By the way, what club did you belong to in CA?
