Thumbs up Ion's first AKC Agility Legs

This weekend was spent running agility... thanks to the shortened daylight it literally was dawn til dusk since I have Ashenpaw in Excellent class and Ion starting out in Novice. This was Ion's second trial, his first was outdoors a few months and he did great but we were just shy of Qualifying. This weekend, however, he ran four times--a Standard and a Jumpers with Weaves run each day and we Q'd 3 out of 4 runs! His Jumpers were flawless 100pts, and we only had a 5 pt Refusal error in the Standard. Extremely proud of him. We reworked his issues after the first trial and they paid off. All bars stayed up all weekend for both boys, only one weave pole issue the entire weekend, focus and start lines were better, and NO fly off on the teeter!

Below are his Q'ing runs:




Ion and his ribbons--before this shot he was trying to eat them.


The Brass Pack after the trial with a very tired me.
