The Weekend Report: The First Trial of 2017!

Jimmy and I did just one day of the Oriole Dog Training Club's agility trial held in conjunction with the big Pet Expo. The place was JAMMED with people, so we had a big audience watching us all run. We even had an announcer giving the crowd commentary on what was going on.

I found a good crating spot with a couple of friends and settled in for a fun day of agility and dog shopping! It doesn't get much better than that, well, except for a booth full of chocolate for the humans! Mmmm, chocolate covered pretzels!

First up was our Standard run on what, by the course map, looked to be a tricky course. It ran much better than it looked, plus Jimmy and I were far enough down in the running order I could watch for the traps. Jimmy was pretty amped to be playing agility but he settled in and gave me a nice run. First place and 25 points!

I forgot my real video camera so this is off my phone. Here it is:

It timed out perfectly that we went almost right over to our Jumpers run without a long wait. This was a pretty straight forward course without too much challenge. The wings on the jumps got in the way just a bit in one spot, but we stayed clean. Again Jimmy earned the first place spot and 18 more points.

Many thanks to my videographer, Darlene. Here is Jumpers:

This made Double-Q #13 toward our PACH2 title. YAY! Pretty ribbons......

And for the agility geeks out there, my course maps.....
