Pretty proud of my dogs
We went to our first rally trial after 4 days on the road in our new camper & all of us exhausted and kind of stressed out.
Met an old friend at the trial & thank goodness she was there because I walked in, panicked and tried to run for the hills. My friend, and a few other people who were there & overheard (it was a small area), convinced me to stay and try. The judge was so nice, everyone was.
We stuck it out, my old gal not only qualified, she got 2nd place. My pup not only qualified, he won his class w/perfect score! He was incredible. It was like he knew people were watching him and he was showing off.
Anyway, I don't expect all trials to be like this...frankly I can't believe I stayed on course because at run thru I skipped about 5 stations without noticing (go me!)
My old girl honestly didn't seem to terribly enjoy it, and she does enjoy doing cyber rally at home, so I am not absolutely sure I will continue with her. But the circumstances were weird and stressful and I still feel we were under prepared, especially her because I had had the puppy out in town practicing more. So I think I will enter her once more and see if she likes it any better when I am (hopefully) less freaked out.
