Default Breed Survey

Nikon and I did his first time breed survey over the weekend. Saturday was the show. Nikon was not entered because there is this ridiculous rule that a dog cannot V if they are not surveyed by age 3.5 (and yet the SV and child organizations insist that there is no pressure to rush-title dogs.....) and Nikon already had an SG rating from an SV judge. I did get him out before the show and practice his gaiting and we did bitework practice after the show. I did some show photography and handled a few dogs. Willy (wildo) invited several of us over to his house for dinner so Nikon got to play on Pimg's agility course for a while and he and Coke both got awesome treats from Kathy (ponyfarm).


Sunday was the breed survey. Nikon volunteered to go first in bitework for the first timers. I know the survey bitework has been quite watered down but I try to take it seriously. We did the entire thing off leash without retries, just like a trial.

Waiting to begin the heeling




The attack




Locking up before the out (I'm happy Nikon waited for the out command and then outed, I don't like early or anticipated outs)


Guarding






Telling the helper to step back and heeling away




Long bite, Nikon was psyched and it was one of his best long bites












Second out and guarding






Waiting to stand for exam




My favorite stack and front shots. I need to have a chat with Johannes, he keeps insisting that having the sun *behind* the dogs is better for photos because if the sun is behind the photog it makes the dog look washed out. I think he's nuts, does my dog look washed out in the two photos above? Having to lighten the photos just to see more than the silhouette of the dog is what makes a dog look washed out! At least my face is now really tan, lol.




Nikon got a really nice critique. It took forever which made me nervous but people said the longer it takes, the nicer it will be. I can't remember the other measurements but he's 62cm tall and he got KKL1 for 2013/2014.

Great job. Johannes does take a long time developing the critique. Last year, Adi was 5 weeks pregnant and we had her stacked and staring at squirrels :-).

This year, Caro was great, as Gabor had to rush home and had Johannes do Dena's ( in full blown heat- I think it is an Indy thing....) 1st.
