Default Good day dancing with my dog

Our Freestyle club is having a great week of events this week. Tuesday, we had a one day seminar with multiple World Champion Michele Pouliot who stopped through OK on her way to Clicker Expo. Workshops on rules and movement Wed. Yesterday and today were titling competitions. Alice finished two new titles - W-FD/HTM (heelwork to music) and W-SSFD/MF (musicial freestyle in the Sassy senior division - she is nine. I'm still a few years (not many) of being eligible as a sassy senior) She was the only one in her SS class, so first place there, but also got second both days in HTM in the largest class of the event (6, I think). I kept swearing I'd never get up in front of people and dance with my dog, but am actually having a lot of fun at it! It's a challenging sport (a whole lot of intricate behaviors that have to be done in time with the music, you have to think about your choreography, and your handling, and your music) but a very supportive group and I like the creative aspect of it, also that it is overwhelimingly positive training (I don't think you could get a lot of it - or at least get it well - with compulsion) We have seminars with another top competitor, Julie Flanery (who was one of our judges) on Sat. and Sunday. Alice is now Vision Practical Magick, ASCA & AKC CDX, RE, STD-s,d,c, PT, JHD, HTAD-1-g, W-FD/MF, W-FD/HTM, W-SSFD/MF

Yeah Alice!!!! For those who don't know, Alice is an aussie FULL of personality, and she's beautiful too. She's my fave Aussie.

Did you get videos? I was looking on FB for competitor's videos, but never saw one.

Julie is one of my trainers. We went through many classes with her with both dogs. She is really a great instructor and about 5 minutes from our house.

Did not get video (but will buy it from WCFO when it comes out) I did upload a few pics. We almost won the Disco competition tonight. CAN YOU BELIEVE THAT!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Was supposed to be a background dancer and ended up having to go in by myself with NO planned routine. We blew them away (and I HATE disco)

I really like Julie! She gave a fantastic seminar today. You are lucky to have her so close.

Cool beans!! I'm so pleased you guys had so much fun. Alice looks like she was really enoying herself in the pics on FB. What were your songs?

Tell Laura to post her videos when she gets them too. Freestyle needs to be seen in video with the music.

I don't think she got taped either. Everyone was pretty busy and mostly the video was just the official one. I will buy it when it is available. Her routine was a show stopper. She was doing "Music of the Night" from Phantom of the Opera (wearing the original "Phantom Mask" loaned by Michele Pouliot) My music was Chasing Rainbows (by R Crumb and his Cheap Suit Serenaders) for the Leprechaun routine (hey, it was St. Paddys Day) and Ukulele Lady by Arlo Guthrie for the Sassy Senior routine.
