*sigh* NQ. I did something really dumb and used an illegal hand signal. There were a few other blips but that was the big one. Oh well. We try again Sunday.

Ah, sometimes training ourselves is harder than training the dog. It's hard to keep all of our body parts under control when we're concentrating on other things.

Good luck on Sunday!

No kidding! lol And thanks.

It was a rough class, 12/13 dogs NQ'd. LOL There was a lot of lack of attention and very laggy heeling from most dogs, but I'm proud to say that despite our NQ, Macky was working in drive, happy, attentive, and having fun. Our heeling was the best it's ever been, and she galloped out and back for her retrieves. <3 So you know what, we had fun and my dog was trying her heart out. That's all I can ask.

Oh and also I threw the dumbbell INTO the high jump the first time, and I had to re-throw. LOL. I told the judge he might want to wear a helmet when I was throwing.

Aw sad days. I'm reasonably certain that I will do that like ninety million times should we ever get to a competing point. >.< Sunday will be better I bet.

Best of luck on Sunday! Keep those hands under control!

*sigh* I held my hand up until she dropped on the drop on recall, which you can't due. You can only signal the drop and then put your arm back down.

The stupidest part about is that she has a very reliable verbal "down" I could have just used instead.

Well, things went a bit better for us today...



























I mistakenly thought it would be cute to do a shot with the dumbbell, but she just made a face like a gap-toothed hillbilly.



Anyway, we were the only qualifiers this round - Open A is a cruel mistress, I guess! There's just lots that can go wrong and lots of fatal mistakes that will NQ you. Macky was very, very good this round, maybe not quite as speedy as on Friday but still with me and happy to be working. And she got to pick out her toy, since they had four lined up and there was only one placement. She picked a blue stuffy dog and OMG was she happy to have it. Carried it all the way back to her crate. LOL

So, yeah. Much improved today.
