Mika agility trial March 21 - Day 1
(Since I haven't made the video for Day 2 of the trial yet, I'll post it at a later date.)
I was really happy with Mika -- it was definitely her best trial in terms of drive and speed! 0/4 Q's, but oh well, I was much happier than I would have been if she'd Q'd 4/4 at a slower speed. She was crazy, even going off-course four times over the weekend!! For Mika, going off-course is a great thing, because it means that she's getting more confident in taking obstacles that are far away from me. She was really happy to be trialling again.
So, this run specifically -- Advanced Gamblers, our only run on Saturday. We tried the mini-gamble and we got it -- it even included a weave entry at 15' away, and Mika aced it both times we tried the mini-gamble! I guess her ability to find entries is better than I thought ;) I blew it for the main gamble...I sent her over the jump and then through the tunnel like I was supposed to, but then my body was telling her to go straight after exiting the tunnel and take a jump, even though she was supposed to turn to go over the dog walk. Oops :)
I'll post about the 3 other runs, which were on Sunday, when I make the video.
