Mika's AAC agility trial Apr. 18, 09
Lots of fun! NQ, NQ, and another NQ, but her speed was incredible, the same (or maybe even better overall) as our March trial!
I had to lead out for all three of the runs because I had to front cross in each of the courses right at the beginning.
Her weaves were awesome, I was surprised and really happy -- she didn't pop either set of weaves, and she got her entry both times! Her dog walk was great too at this trial, I handled the contact a bit (pointed at the yellow) which helped her know that she had to hit it instead of flying over just above the yellow :) We need to work on 270's, there were two of them this weekend and she had no idea what to do.
I honestly don't mind the off-courses. Honestly. I'm absolutely amazed with her speed! Her reckless take-whatever-obstacle-I-see is, in my opinion, a lot better than running at the speed she was running at last year. After five months of rewarding for off-courses and convincing her that she can never make a mistake, her confidence has increased a LOT. YES!
