Tally had a fun day, and got a leg too.[/IMG]
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.I'm confused? Where is the long down?
Nice photo though!
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.
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.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.
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?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.
No actually. Attacking a dog is a write-up - and usually an excusal - but its not a DQ or event committee.Congrats to Tally!
