Last weekend we got our IPO 1 at our club trial (Empire Working Dog Club). Tracking and obedience had some big surprises so I didn't end up with the scores I'd hoped for, but we rocked protection!
He bumped the sleeve slightly in the blind--looked like an accident to me, but still cost us a point! Anticipated the out on the escapes a bit. It's a balance between knowing you have a good out and them fighting until the lock-up! But I can't complain how it went!
Now time to clean everything up for our 2 this fall!!
