Bella got first place.....

...at her Intermediate Obedience class graduation. We did a heeling pattern, figure 8, stand stay for exam, recall with front and finish, 1 minute sit stay and 3 minute down stay.

According to the official score sheet, we got 197/200. I actually think that is somewhat generous, because the heeling was a little rough in a couple spots. Other than that, she did great!

Amazingly, only one dog broke the sit stay, and none of them broke the down stay out of 12 dogs.

Next week, we begin a three week CGC class with the test on the third week, on her 10 month birthday. Meanwhile, Bella has earned two days off from training.

Thanks. Yes, very relieved, because as I said the other day, I put far too much pressure on myself for stuff like this. Not only that, but Bella was extremely squirrely from the moment we walked in the door. I was really sweating the stays tonight.

Her heeling is really going to need to improve if we decide to compete down the road. She does everything else fairly well at this point.

I mentioned this in another thread, but a Mastiff actually got 2nd place. You normally wouldn't think of a Mastiff doing well in obedience, but this woman works hard! Her 150 lb lumbering dog beat out two Border Collies, a Lab, Vizsla, German Shorthair, etc. We were in puppy class together, and I can't help but be impressed. She plans on continuing on with classes and perhaps competition.
