This weekend we were in Monument, Colorado for AKC.
Saturday was beautiful with warm temperatures. Sunday was freezing!
Sage had a great Standard run on Saturday and then a wrong course jump at the very end. In jumpers, I experimented with layering and she had two wrong courses. I don't like to layer with her because when we have too much distance between us, we lose that connection. But what the heck, the run was for fun so I wanted to try it.
I did do the layer with Summit (who I ran after Sage), and it worked beautifully. Different dog....
Summit held ALL his DW and AF contacts and waited for the release cue. I was so pleased!
And Sage did not miss a single contact all weekend.
On Sunday, Sage had a beautiful and fast run in Standard and won the Ex. B class. The jumpers course that afternoon was tricky for a hearing impaired dog. I knew we would have to work hard to qualify on that course. I did almost lose her to an offcourse tunnel but I was able to get her back and we had a very nice finish for 3rd place and a Double Q!
Summit had a very nice jumpers run but I overhandled a jump/tunnel discrimination and sent him over the wrong jump.
So a very good weekend and with several training/performance goals achieved.
