Tally had a fun day, and got a leg too.

The long down gives me instant ADD. Forget the dogs staying- I can't stand the suspense myself! Tally is much better at stay than me.

Sorry- I should have given the thread a different name! I thought Shannan had a picture of all six dogs lined up. The Bernese Mt dog won.

Congratulations! Wow-there is a lot of space between dogs, is that normal now? When I was competing back in the 70's, I remember the dogs being a lot closer to each other. I always worried when my dog was next to one who was poorly trained or who I knew to be aggressive.

I thought the same thing about how far apart the dogs are.
The rules have changed to say there's supposed to be 4 feet between dogs, but at most of the shows I've been at it's closer to 2-3 feet unless there are very small numbers of entries.

Tally got a CD leg and a Rally leg again today, and high point golden retriever. He came home with lots of ribbons, picture frames, tote bags and stuffed toys. . . He is such a good boy, and I am a spaz.

There was an incident involving some of these new england dogs a few weeks ago in which a boxer and am staff got into it like you wouldnt believe. Everyone felt shaken up and concerned. I think there was a push to use the whole ring to really separate dogs bc of that, and they did open A& Open B stays in three sessions. However, all the dogs were wonderful, with no problems at all this weekend.

yes, My4Goldens and I have pulled our dogs, or not entered them in Open, because of another dog in our area who is very dog aggressive and has gone after each of our dogs in the past. He tends to be at the same shows we are, which is a shame.
It's a scary thing.


Congrats!!! I'm so jealous of all the space between dogs in the group exercises!! Where was this show?

Aren't dogs supposed to be suspended from competition for that?

No actually. Attacking a dog is a write-up - and usually an excusal - but its not a DQ or event committee.

Now - attacking or attempting to attack a person - that is grounds for an event committee action or a disqualification if the judge calls it. There's some weirdness that goes on between event committee vs judge. If something happens outside the ring, even if the judge sees it, it's an event committee matter. If it happens IN the judge's ring it's their matter - even if 10,000 people saw it...I've twice seen incidents happen outside the ring that should have been event committee actions (and in one case a judge saw it too) but the person who was either bitten or lunged at didn't want to file a report. I've also seen aggression towards the judge IN the obedience ring that was not written up, even though many people reported the issue to the event committee/show chair...

I guess I'm out of the obedience loop these days - I hadn't heard about an attack -was it down on the cape last weekend? Portland is a bit far for me these days - I like to stay within a 5 hour radius from shows these days...there's no direct route from Burlington to Portland - its actually faster to go all the way down to Manchester via 89 pick up i93, 101 to 95 from here to Portland...
