Well, Sunday was crap for weather, but great for agility!
The one day trial was tons of fun!
I'm so proud of my little Bizzie - she ran great 3 out of 4 runs - we were first dog on the line for the first class (Steeplechase) & she was clean until the 3rd last obstacle when she took the wrong end of the tunnel (not sure why - I must have taken a step that way before she was committed).
The standard round had a few problems - distracted at the end of the arena by the horse poop, & blew a couple of contacts, but her weaves are getting very good!
She Q'd in snooker with 3 sixes (a pinwheel of jumps) & finished the closing! That's her Starters Snooker title! Yeah - pretty good for a rookie!
Last run was another Steeplechase & she ran awesome - 2 sets of 12 weaves & a few rear crosses, which we're still working on, & she Q'd, which is her first Steeplechase Q - what a good girl!
Blast had a pretty good day - it was a small trial, so maybe it was slightly less distracting for him.
He missed a few obstacle in the first steeplechase, but I just let him keep going & made no corrections...
He did the first half of the standard course very well, then blew a contact & missed the weave pole entry, but did go back & do them, so really he did quite well.
I did the same Snooker path with him that I did with Bizzie & he Qualified as well! It wasn't necessarily pretty - but we got it done! Good Boy!
That's his Starters Snooker title as well!
Steeplechase 2 was a weird run - he started off slow & seemed to be really concentrating, then with 3 obstacles to go (we were clean) he went & pooped - note to self - if he's slow, take him off the course!!
Since it was a smaller trial, I had only 1 dog between Blast & Bizzie, so it was difficult to be organized - I worked every Adv class & ran in every Masters & Starters class... I also had another dog with me that I was babysitting so I had to look after her as well. Wayne did take them out to potty a few times, but he doesn't know Blast like I do, so he didn't wait for him long enough to potty very well.
Boo Q'd in both Steeplechase runs, had 5 F in Standard when he ran past the chute (odd) & did a backjump in snooker (my fault). He wasn't running very fast - not sure if he's sore.
All in all, it was a fun time, a nice relaxed trial & fun courses!
