Minka earned her IPO 1!

Minka earned her IPO 1 under Johannes Grewe Saturday. Our score was 264 pronounced. The score by phase was 92 92 80. Yeah, I have to take the blame for our dive in the protection phase.

We started out well with tracking - both articles were found and indicated properly. We lost a few points on the first corner that was judged as a tad wide, then at the first article when I unintentionally stepped on Minka's foot causing her to shift (and yelp), and she finished the third leg (into the wind) with a bit of a high nose.

Obedience - heeling was rated excellent as was most everything else, however the main point loss was 5 points for the sit in motion (that Minka can do in her sleep), when she laid down instead. We lost the remaining 3 points on retrieves that included a frisky head-shake on dumbbell pickup, and for a nudge on the return in-front after the A-frame.

Protection - our normally solid protection routine fell apart from the get-go due to my inexperience, particularly in event dog-mind preparation for bite work combined with my stupid mistakes. The send out to the first blind was a disaster when I setup badly making Minka think I wanted her to run blind 3. From there, I was able salvage it a bit by calling her and sending her on to the proper blind 5 and then on to blind 6. However, we were both out-of-sync enough that it snowballed into more handler errors and dog focus loss etc., that impacted the performance. I won't bore you all, or embarrass myself any further, with the details.

However, I learned a lot and got tips from Johannes on techniques for Minka's protection training that he thought would improve on her foundation by taking her seriousness up a notch.

Congratulations!!! Excellent scores, despite the protection hiccup - Good for you and Minka for keeping it together enough for a passing score.

Congrats to you and Minka~ Great scores, too!
Trial nerves....bring out those hiccups.
I haven't even attempted to trial for the one because I will be a wreck(not so much my dog/but he'll feel it). I wanted to this weekend,but just couldn't bring myself to enter.

Big congrats! If we're easy there would be way more people doing it. It's more important that you went through with it and accomplished something with your dog than for everything to be perfect!
