The Weekend Report: A Premiere Double-Q!

It was a very rainy weekend here in the mid-Atlantic region, so there was no better way to spend it than at an (indoor!) agility trial. Jimmy qualified in five of his six runs, with four 1st places and a 2nd place. He qualified in BOTH of his Premiere runs. Fortunately we had another dog running against us this time, so the runs even counted for his Top 25% requirement!

I have lots of video to share. I won't give a long, boring description of each run. I'll let the video do the talking!

First, only the Premiere maps this time....Jumpers was particularly challenging, but alas it is not on video.

Here is Saturday's Standard Premiere run:

We had a nice run in the regular Standard as well. It has a lot of similarities to Premiere...

Our Jumpers run was going so nicely until right near the end. Jimmy ticked the second to last jump bar and down it went. Oops!

Sunday started with the Jumpers Premiere followed by this Standard run.....

And finally Sunday's Jumpers run. All the bars stayed up this time. This was a very tricky course, nearly a hard as the Premiere version....

We also earned 77 points over the course of the weekend. A nice tally toward our National Championship requirement for next year! Plus Premiere counted as a Double'Q as you don't need to get them on the same day like you do with the regular STD/JWW. We made some real progress on our NAC requirements! Yay!

I almost forgot! Adding this as an update.....Since this was the first trial after Jimmy's PACH last weekend, I brought the traditional cake as well as my PACH bar for friends to sign....

  1. Wow, you two are an amazing team. In that first premiere video, the jumping pattern near the end was really intricate but you two nailed it! It looked almost effortless, which I know is the mark of real proficiency! Congrats. Way to go!

  2. Really enjoyed watching those! So much fun. And I agree with KB Bear you made it look effortless!

  3. Those were fun! Great job and congratulations to you both!
