We apologize for not being around much the last few days
Friday, Saturday and Sunday
Mom & I were at the park in Idaho Falls
It was our favorite trial of the year
The Upper Snake River Valley Dog Training Club
Obedience and Rally Trials
We were entered in the Preferred Novice Obedience Class
Everything is the same as Novice except no group stays
Preferred Novice Exercises
On leash heeling pattern and figure eight
Leash removed - stand for exam
off leash heeling pattern
Sit or down stay while mom walks around ring
Recall - sit in front - finish (return to heel)
Sit stay while mom retrieves leash
Friday I did really well
My first qualifying score in Preferred Novice!
Saturday did not go as well
The judge was very tall and he had a deep loud voice
Although Mom said he was very nice, something about him did not set well with me. I was giving him the evil eye the minute we walked in the ring. I did not like it when he did the stand exam. Still we were qualifying until the recall. I barked at the judge to let him know he was too close. When Mom called me I went right on by her and that was that
I hung out in my camper cause our day wasn't over yet -
we still had the fun Team competition
We were on the Clown Team
We had a blast entertaining the crowd with our shinanigans
and came away with 4th place ribbons
Then we were back on Sunday for another try at
Preferred Novice Obedience.
Mom & I were both happy to have the same judge
we had on Friday
Yay! My second qualify!
We only need one more to earn the title
And we weren't done yet!
After all the obedience classes were done
I was awarded a rosette for
Highest Scoring Dog in the Preferred Classes!!
We sure had a fun time
I also won $45 in gift cards
When are we going shopping Mom??
We are the PugRanch Kids
