Obedience was Fun

Levi and ChaseThe obedience trial in Idaho Falls was fun. Mainly it told me that Levi is not ready for Open! 🙂 He was in Open A, and while he did some good work with his dumbbell, his broad jump and his drop on recall are not quite up to par yet. But that’s okay, because I know where we are much better now!

Tatum AgainLevi is doing really well though. He heels so nicely. I entered him in Novice B obedience in ASCA this Sunday. I was going to do both days, but I need some down time this weekend. And since I’m doing flyball practice on Sunday and will be out anyway, I figured Saturday would be my down day.

Dogs and the CampThe first picture up there is of Chase and Levi on the Snake River… and the second is Tatum. Isn’t she cute? LOL of course. My friend Marie took them with my camera. I need to get her copies of her dogs! I’d post them but she really should post them on her own blog, I was thinking. 😉

The third picture is of our camp again. It was so nice staying in the trailer. $27.00 a night so beats $120 a night for a hotel! It was more work, but that’s okay, it was worth it. And the dogs seemed to relax and have a good time too. And Levi and Chase are both comfortable in the trailer, and Tatum was also, and the shelties seem to like it okay too! The dogs didn’t even bark too much. They seemed to get used to the strange sounds pretty quickly.

So no Qs for Levi this weekend, and I pulled him the third day because it would have been a waste of time. And I didn’t want him to learn bad things in the ring. And on the second day he laid down on his sit stay (the first day he sat though I was so proud!), and then on the long down (5 minutes out of sight) he rolled around on his back (I am told, lol) and did his goofy woofing thing, then got up and went looking for me. LOL what a goof. But he had fun and I’m glad he did!

Chase was in rally and, once again, he was pretty awful. 🙂 He just doesn’t have any focus on me when the treats go away. I only ran him through the first day. I pulled him the second and third days. I don’t want Qs like that, I want some attention from that boy! We are going to work on it and we have some ideas.

Fortunately the trailer sheets didn’t make me break out in hives,which some sheets have been doing lately. Bleh. I was very comfortable and it was nice being cool again! I should have brought a jacket, though, and didn’t need any Proactiv acne cream, fortunately!

I liked pulling the trailer.. yes, I actually liked it! It was great to stay at the RV park instead of in a hotel!
