That 15 backside was difficult but we did ok by doing a landing side cross with it.
She's happier in the upper field where there is no teeter.
Orange Course - trouble with tunnel 8 - ran past it.
It went well. I led out past 2 but Sharon was suggesting part way up the DW.
|10 dings for being out of
position. 2 repeats. One there wasn't room for
her to do correctly (the #4 moving stand).
But now that I look at it there is a whole lot of things that she did correctly. She did the really hard stand from a sit (#2), and in #12 she did the moving stand and I walk away, down her, recall and front, and a finish (right). the backup worked - a little diagonal, but no real deduction. This is with her wiping at her eye. I should just put stuff in her eye beforehand though it was still early.
Ironically this is really -24 not -25 not that it matters. She did get her Exc Title though she is clearly not done with Rally.
On the other hand the Novice heeling was pretty sad though Q'ing until I gave that second command (out of annoyance) She got up at the end of the down too just to completely sink things. Back to either Beginner Novice or just stay in Rally. No moving to Open now - bummer. I was hoping to have both titles but she only has one Novice Q and that was another barely passing one.
|Lower Field. I
don't crate her in the lower field when the teeter is there
- I just have her in the car
I don't attempt the teeter but have her run the course without it. She was also being strange about the panel jump. Later on we went back and she did three teeters and the panel jump - once i convinced her it wasn't going to bite her.
|6-9 she completely smoked
and she was into the weave poles before I could call
her. Sharon said she was really "motoring" and she was
2nd or 3rd time I was finally able to get her attention for
|Before that we all did a
Corgiville re-creation with Trek as the star. Trek
held her stay quite well until it got too hot, but we got
some nice photos out of it. (She is the victim of
being cute, but a good sport about it as long as she's
It was a whole bunch of fun: http://frap.org/Trek/trek-to-corgiville.html
||Course 1 orange
Front cross after the weaves and it was a bit of a hike to get out to 4, then another FC after 5 then a whole lot of running all the way around the field, and the over the double and charge into the tunnel with me on the other side of the DW. No issue on that at all.
|Course 2 blue
We had trouble after the dogwalk. I couldn't get ahead for a front cross so we instead worked on encouraging her to drive ahead with me saying go go go just before 5.
At the tire to the tunnel she took the wrong end.
|Course 3 green
The fun of this one was the cross behind on the weaves (5) and then I had to drive ahead to do a FC so I could pull over to 6. And then do another FC right after 6, and then blasting all the way back.
| Rally Excellent
|The hard part here was to
back off from the tunnel enough (at 4) to make the front
cross and not trip over the dogwalk. Did have to
hustle some to make the FC at 10 but it was quite doable,
and I was able to send her and fade more to the right to
clear some space. I think I crossed behind at the
chute but had time to get to 13 tunnel.
|She actually snuck behind
me to take the wrong end of the tunnel at 3. Nothing I
was doing obviously wrong either but we redid it and it
worked. Again had to run but made the FC just after 6
and the FC at 10 worked too.
On the dog walk since we have a running contact Sharon had us run down the fence side of the DW which was cramped but worked nicely to get her to the tunnel with out a lot of wasted ground.
|Quick one at the end of
class. Quite a lot of fun and a lot of running.
RC at the chute worked fine.
