Historic Master Career Moment!

Trial #25 July 17th Geraldton Dog Club – I was happy with yesterday’s performance but today absolutely took the cake – and it was a historical moment for the Raven and me – for the 1st time since competing in Masters she went CLEAR in both Agility and Jumping! Woohoo!! 1st PLACE MASTERS AGILITY and 2nd Place MASTERS JUMPING! Fantastic!! I was absolutely over the moon with her! Then she ran a ripper of a course in Open Agility – but had a close call against her on the dogwalk – yet she still managed a 2nd place – what a star! So we are now 5/7 for ADM and 4/7 for JDM…not long to go now 🙂 She is clocking up some decent points for the State team selection at the Nationals.


Rockingham jinx – Geraldton success!

Trial #23 July 10th Rockingham Dog Club – 1 fault (a refusal) in Masters Agility 1 bar down in Masters and Open Jumping and in Open Agility we had an off course…so no luck today unfortunately!

Trial #24 July 16th Geraldton Dog Club – she was a very good girl today and won 2nd Place MASTERS JUMPING That makes leg #3 for JDM. She had only 1 fault in Masters Agility – a refusal (my handling of course!) however still received 2nd place as there was only 1 qualifier – it was a tough course! She had 2 faults in open agility however as there was only 1 qualifier in that she won 2nd Place OPEN AGILITY! So all in all she had a very good day only knocking 1 bar in Open Jumping!

The Open Queen…

Trial #21 July 3rd ANWA Fundraiser – This morning trial was quite successful with just a bit of bad luck – she put one paw on the A Frame out of order in Masters Agility and in Masters Jumping we had one bar down 😦 But to make up for it we had a 1st Place in Open Jumping PLUS 1st Place in Open Agility! I also got to run Deb Hyde’s BC “Jasper” also known as Obedience Champion Brynbank Dangeros Liasion ADX JDX UD…and he and I took out 3rd PLACE OPEN AGILITY

Trial #22 July 3rd ANWA Fundraiser PM Trial Again some hard luck – both Masters being my fault I handled her onto on an off course in both agility and jumping. Open Agility I tried a front cross – unfortunately unsuccessfully! That was our only error and we made up for it with a 1st Place in Open Jumping, good girl! I ran Deb Hyde’s BC “Jasper” again…and he and I took out 4th PLACE OPEN AGILITY.
Once again I ponder all these Open passes and what exactly did hold us back those years! Check out the focus in the weaves! This is a photo taken at our first NADAC (National Agility Dog Association) Trial last year in Sydney October. She loved the courses and so did I thankfully they required very little running from me since I had torn my calf muscle the day before!
