I haven't really been in a rush to trial Ditto, but she was 18 months at the end of Sept & it seems she is more ready to trial than any of my other dogs were when I started them!
I took her to Edmonton last weekend to see how she would handle it. She'd never stayed in a hotel before, we were trialing at a new venue & all her siblings were left behind - it was just Ditto & mom. Well, she thought hotel life was great, she didn't miss the other dogs, & she was confident but sassy at the trial.
She ran fast, held her contacts and startlines & listened to me (most of the time)!
She just ran a couple of runs each day so Saturday she ran gamblers & standard & Q'd them both! There were a few "moments" in each run, but no faults incurred.
Sunday was team (spectacular teeter fly off) & steeplechase (missed a jump - totally my fault) and a jumpers. For such a rookie she did awesome! I'm so looking forward to more trials with my little spitfire!
She's also making her scent hurdle debut very soon!
