First Trial Day

Well today was the first day of the 3 day agility trial. It went too slow, for 33 dogs in Excellent Standard. But oh well, I don’t have much else to do.

Levi did pretty good but didn’t weave for me. I wonder if staying in a hotel for a week doesn’t’ let him relax like he should. Tomorrow if he doesn’t weave I’m going to bring him back, gently and positively, and encourage him to get them. He can, I know it!

Chase.. well, as expected, lost his brain entirely on his open standard run. But after flyball last weekend, I can’t be surprised. We worked, before and after, on all our exercises for attention and focus. I think it helped because his FAST run was much better and he qualified. I didn’t enter him in JWW today and I’m glad I didn’t. After Standard he got to go right to his crate, after walking off after 4 obstacles, and sit and think for a while. 🙂

I’m tired and I’m going to go watch TV for the night, and knit. There are no bar stools in this hotel room, but the bed is comfy, there is a desk, a table, three regular chairs, and a nice hot shower.
