I went to my very first obedience trial this weekend.
Mom and I were entered in Beginner Novice
It was a great learning experience for me!
which is a positive way of saying
that we did not get a
qualifying score either day
But I improved a lot from Saturday to Sunday
This is the ring where we did our stuff.
Saturday I was a little wound up.
It took me half way through the heeling exercise
to settle in. I was supposed to do a sit stay
while Mom walked around the ring
but I laid down when she was about half way around.
On Sunday Mom made a few adjustments
and we did MUCH better.
In fact we were sooooo close to qualifying.
I Heeled nicely, my Figure 8 was better.
Sit for Exam - nailed it.
did my Sit Stay, even though it was hot.
All I had to do was my recall and we would qualify.
Mom called me and I headed right for her
but then veered off to her left to sniff the fence.
She called again, no response
called third time -
Oh Ok I better go sit in front of Mom
but she is only allowed to call twice.
Dang !! So close!!
Mom thought I did pretty good
for my very first time at an obedience trial.
There are a lot of people and dogs
and stuff going on.
She was really happy that I improved
from Saturday to Sunday.
We have two months to practice before our next trial
I know I can do it!!
We want to give a shout out to our furiend
