BSP qualification

Some days ago we had the chance to qualify for this year's BSP (Bundessiegerprüfung - basically National Trial Level) in September. I wasn't really sure what to expect because sometimes Beast pays attention, but sometimes she just doesn't. Or I get lost in the course, etc... So many things that can go wrong...

I guess she saved it all for the weekend because she managed to get through without disqualification - and qualified for the BSP.

I'm really excited and can't wait for the big event in September.


In case you're interested, these are our runs:

Good for both of you! Keep us posted!

Time itself is a very powerful component of learning. So learn to wait. Learn to forgive. Learn to backup. It's all necessary for learning.

Teach! Teach! Teach! Be fair to your dog!

Yes, the BSP basically consists of the IPO part and the agility part - even though the IPO part is much more famous and more heavily frequented by spectators!
But agility is also in the stadium - same place as the protection work. That's why it's not that easy to combine logistically because both things (protection work and agility) can't happen at the same time, obviously. That's why it usually starts off with agility on Friday (quite early in the morning) and on Saturday and Sunday we have a run in-between two "protection blocks". We are basically the ones who guarantee a pause for the spectators that came to watch some protection work. But quite a few of them usually stay and watch some agility runs - and are quite impressed with some of the dogs (even though they would never admit it^^)!
This way a lot of people who wouldn't even consider going to or watching an agility trial come in contact with it which is really nice because - as you pointed out - it demonstrates a GSD's versatility perfectly!
