Kodi qualified in Utility A today and placed 2nd!!!! For her first UD leg! Yipee!!
Saturday it was the same old thing, one go-out mucked up. She did the first one very well, and then on the second, she went about 9.5 feet beyond the jumps and stopped. The judge said it was not far enough and to either call her back or try and send her back to the wall. So I said "Scat" and she went.
I am beginning to think that in a trial, after the first go-out I just set her up again with out the usual hoopla that I do in training, and she is questioning whether she did right or not and stops. So today I really jazzed her up in between the first and second go-outs and she did well! (Well, she did not sit which cost us four points, but it qualified!
Novice through Utility in 7 months here we come!!
Congrats..good job to you both

I cannot imagine novice thru utility in 7 months. We've been at it for six years!
Thanks! Kodi is a very special girl, I only wish I were a better trainer (or tried to do fewer things) and I know she could be one of the top dogs. She is my heart dog, no ifs ands or buts.Originally Posted by raian
