earned her AD- Agility Dog- title yesterday. That is the novice level in
USDAA and you need 3 legs in standard, and 1 leg each in jumpers,
gamblers, pairs, and snooker. Today she also picked up her first advanced
standard, jumpers and gamblers legs.
We did not Q in snooker because I went the wrong way on a jump in the closing. We didn't Q in Grand Prix due to a handling mistake, and yesterday we didn't Q in steeplechase because she couldn't stay in the weaves and I eventually gave up and left.
Here is our advanced standard leg from today. I should have more videos later.
Dottie ran very well all weekend and I was very pleased and had lots of fun. Except for the lack of weaves in steeplechase. I don't know what caused that.
I live in Ventura County California. The three dogs referred to are Fancy, 11 year old Tibetan Terrier, Pie, 8 year old Belgian Malinois and Dottie, 5 year old Belgian Malinois. Muffin a 13 year old poodle mix makes four but he is more like a cat so I don't count him. Bloom and Blossom are no longer alive, but are still with me in spirit. All are from local animal shelters. We amuse ourselves by competing in agility and obedience competitions.
