Brady has a vet appt this morning and Towhee Novice) and Faelan(Utility) are both entered in an obedience trial this afternoon; I know Faelan is not going since he did not do so well at the run thrus last weekend; Towhee I just haven't decided about - due to the weather I have not really worked any of the dogs in 2 weeks now and the Novice classes are 28 dogs (8 in NA, 20 in NB) so that would be all afternoon on a day when I can get out and about - feeling somewhat stir crazy here what with 3 adult dogs and a pup who need both exercise and training!

I doubt Ms Towhee would break 195 for her score (judging by last weekend 3-5 points for the about turn during the heel free, 1/2 point for the partial sit going into the slow on leash, 1/2 point for the lag coming out of the slow on leash , 1 point for the front, 1/2 point for the finish plus whatever else ; maybe I'll just stay home and play LOL)

ETA: thinking about it, that about turn would have been a substantial deduction, so she is not ready. The trial today is in the same place ...

Sharon, Towhee looks awesome. Tito says hi to her. He says WOO WOO! Loved the photo of Brady with the wing.
Susan, good luck this weekend!
Happy, you should be really proud of a 195! Congrats on the second leg and the RN title!
Laurie, LOVE the tracking! Lexx is such a doll.
Kate, Jacks is making lots of progress it sounds like!
Anney, good luck this coming weekend at the HT (sorry, wrong thread).
Sorry if I missed anyone, I really enjoyed catching up in this thread.
Last weekend we had agility trials. He got a Q in JWW on Friday, a QQ on Saturday (our 3rd), and a NQ NQ on Sunday....maybe 3 days of trials (6 in 10 days!) is too much for him. That's it for us for agility until January now.
Thanks!! No matter what, I am sure we will have fun!!!

Nugget had a great week training at home on driveway this week and NEVER blew the 3-5minute sits and downs I'm very pleased because this has been an ongoing problem. He did start to go wide on the abouts and outside turn of figure 8 but this morning they were pretty good. Monday we will go to class with more distractions and see how it goes, and again try off leash heeling in a protected area . Overall I'm pleased with an almost 7 mos. old puppys performance.

The wubba is Zoe's favorite outside toy. She goes crazy for it and they seem pretty durable. We do informal retrieves with it. Do you think this is positive or not if we're thinking of doing formal obedience retrieves? It hasn't seemed to impair her willingness to work with a dumbbell.

Sunrise, what was the decision about Towhee's trial? I envy you being able to contemplate whether she would break 195.

Nuggetsdad, It's amazing what Nugget can do at less than 7 mos. I didn't know that a dog that age had the attention span to hold sits and downs for that long.

I decided to pull her - I have worked very, very hard on building her confidence and joy in the ring and if she did an about like that in the trial I'd probably double command her since I can't ask for a repeat, which may just set her back , so I'll work on a few things more... she does deserve to be fully prepared

I try to work training Nugget 5 - 6 times a week and do just a little each session or as far as one sliced thin hot dog goes . He is very food oriented thank goodness and I try to keep it fun. The sits and downs have been built up little by little each week going for a little more and yes I had set backs . Nugget is the fith dog I'm going to try to title . My GSD got a CD and was stolen out of my yard many years ago since then I fell in love with goldens and have been fortunate to have gotten a UD on my first one then aUDX and 95 otch points and finally got the OTCH on my third boy at 42 mos. Nugget is very easy as he catches on to what I want and he learned to watch plus loving treats sure don't hurt which he only gets when he does the desired action and when he does many times I yell jackpot and give him a handful of treats and quit for the day

Sunrise and Nuggetsdad, thanks for responding. It's helpful to see how those with more experience bring their dogs along.

Filly's UKC debut day #1 turned out like this.

Trial #1
Obedience Novice B 196.5 3rd place
2.5pts were from me(purposefully) giving her a tight leash.
0 pts lost on the offleash! Mission accomplished!

Rally level 1
99 4th place
Handler err=1pt

Trial #2
Obedience Novice B 199 2nd place
the 1 pt was from her touching me on her front, which I am fine with, because of how nicely she came in, and with a straight front It was a really nice feeling run.

RO 1
99pts 3rd place
Handler err=1pt
This too was a really nice run, she heeled along happily.

What I learned from today...

When in a runoff in UKC make sure your dog is in a perfect sit in heel before you say ready, or you will lose the runoff without even taking a step.

I need to learn the UKC rules!

Hopefully tomorrow is another good day.
