Cool New Title!

Only Ash got to run at this show because Parker's co-owner was a conformation at the trial. Ash got out there and just did fantastic! He only ticked the jump which cost us a point. The rest of it he was right there with me. Wonderful attentiveness, a fantastic heel, and tight sits. We got second place behind a golden retriever with a gorgeously perfect run!

Here's our run: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=OTtzhiuSCBk





As a bonus, I got to handle Parker-Smudgies puppies today as they were at the show. Absolutely adorable!

Wow That was well done and well handled. I think your formal obedience class has really bled over to Rally. That was nice. Congrat!! The RE title is a nice one to have. On to RAE, which will be a breeze for you two

Thanks everyone! Yes, Agility, I too have seen the difference in my handling since I started doing a little tweeking with Paul. He just brought the level of handling to a crisper level and has me trusting that Ash will be there. Watching less, feeling more. It's bleeding into a LOT of what I do. And Ash's tail never stops wagging, which tells me he loves what we're doing. Such a good boy!

Parker's pups were outside, it was impromptu and we didn't have the camera with us at the time. Not to mention we had to wrangle the little buggers the whole time! They were very mobile!
