USDAA for Chase

Fun Playing Well I’ve made a decision today. Usually my main agility venue focus is AKC. And the only reason that is, is because there are more AKC trials around me than any other venue. However, the other venues are getting more popular and there are more of them.

Plus, a few people now have commented to me that Chase would be a great USDAA dog. And so, I’m going to start entering him in USDAA trials.

Though my clip on earrings might fall off when I run him… so I should leave those at home. πŸ™‚ I am going to see about running him in USDAA. There is a local trial here in April I plan on entering him in.

Now.. I’ll have to hope that I don’t get sick. For some reason I seem to catch a cold during USDAA trials! I have done so now for 3 of them, I think. In four years. And I don’t like loosing money if I can’t go.

It was fun running him in Snooker and he does have a Snooker leg. I did run him at 22″ though, when I ran him. He measures 21.5″ when AKC judges measure him, which makes him jump 26″ in USDAA if I go for full height. And while I know he can jump that, it just seems so tall for him. We have never jumped that high and would have to practice it before hand.

Anyway, I’m looking forward to doing USDAA with Chase. Levi will stay home, he’s not really built for it, and I’m going to keep concentrating on his AKC. I may not enter Chase in AKC for a bit in the summer, as it’s very hard for me to run both dogs in the same trial because they are so different. But I’ve already entered them both in the February AKC trial, we’ll see how that goes.

  1. I think you are going to be addicted to USDAA after running Chase in them πŸ™‚ I don’t think he would have a problem jumping 26in as he is so athletic. But there is nothing wrong with performance. Heck I have 3 dogs in performance.
    I think he is going to be very competitive. Oh and if you get sick will he run for me πŸ™‚

  4. That’s my only real issue with USDAA. The jump heights. Bullmastiff’s shouldnt’ jump that high.. too much front end weight coming down on their elbows

  5. Yeah Jen, no way I’d jump Levi at 26″ either. That is what he would have to jump. Collies are just not built for it either. πŸ™

  7. ah cool Julie I will go check them out. August would be a good traveling month, not much else going on then. And when I go to Colorado maybe I can stay with my friend in Denver. πŸ™‚

  8. I only travel to USDAA trials so at least you will know a few people. The Laramie trial in August is really good. Go to the Colorado agility Yahoo list and they have a calender of all there trials in the files section.
