He did REALLY well. I strongly considered pulling him, as he had fallen off the dogwalk in class last saturday and came up lame for a few days. But, he seemed fine friday and so I decided to go for it, even though he had had zero exercise all week. :surprise:
We were in two rally novice trials and two pre-novice obedience trials on saturday, and then another pre-novice trial today. He did great yesterday, scored 94 on both rally trials (and won third place in one!) and passed both pre-novice trials! (in Canada it's just a pass or fail, no score assigned.) He did the sit-for-exam!! Flawlessly!! WOOT!!
Today his run was better than yesterday's, much more attention and better heeling, nailed the sit-for-exam yet again () but went down on the long sit, so no PCD title for the Boo-man. He just started sniffing and down he went. Frustrating because he was oh-so close, but really not a huge deal in the grand scheme of things. We'll do some more proofing before next time for sure, I hadn't worked stays with him pretty much at all before this (bad Momma!). :embarrass:
So, now he is officially Atkinsday's Bear Necessities RN CGN!! Whoo hoo!!
A pic of him with his ribbons, there were two toys that he decided were not long for this world and were sent to the bridge in a matter of minutes. RIP toys! :whatever:
Baloo - 5 year old black lab
Peanut - 7 year old minpin
Monster - 3-ish year old frenchie/jack, rescue
Great job..congrats to you both
