This holidays Brody had a couple of different competitions. In the first weekend we entered in an elementary class at an obedience champ show, and Brody (for once in obedience!) did really well. His heelwork, which is usually the issue, was fantastic... only half a point off! But unfortunately he broke his sit stay. We would have won if he had stuck the stays!! But a third place ribbon was pretty good.
This Saturday we entered the Paws n music show, that was run in conjunction with the Ardmore Bennefit show.
It was a great competition, once I got over the nerves it was kind of fun! And it was great to see all the dogs we have been training with do their routines.
Brody did ok, I was a little bit disapointed because he had itchy ears (allergies!) and kept shaking his head, and this made him miss a few moves. Also my timing was a little of. But it was pretty good for our first performance!
We were placed first in Elementary heel work to music, but as we were the only competitior (the others were classed in freestyle) it dosent really count! But overall we had the second highest points, and considering that he kept shaking his head I was pretty happy with that.
So we will keep working on the routine for the upcoming local show, and Nationals in October.
