Carma's videos/pics from 2015 USCA IPO3 Nationals

Well all things didn't go as planned, but we had a great time at our first national championship last weekend. There was some super tough judging going on and Carma had a great showing in obedience with 92 points and very minor (mostly handler) mistakes.


Unfortunately, she didn't feel like outing off the long bite in protection, but she had a wonderful routine going for her up until then! I think the big field allowed her to gain some serious speed for the long bite and it may have gone to her head (as seen in the last few seconds of this video)


Overall, I'm so happy with her. She showed beautifully and had a blast for having barely 5 minutes of practice, in her first "big" stadium showing and with unfamiliar helpers. I think we are going to have a lot of fun in the future together!

I dont know anything about IPO but her heel and retrival as well as the scaling the diagnoal wall was great. She looks like she loved it!Good job Carma.

Carma and you have always been an inspiration to me! So much dedication and work put into it! She always looks like she is having a great time doing what she does! The obedience heel work is phenomenal!

Thank you!

Almost every dog (except 1 I believe) lost 1/2 point for being "slightly restless" in the long down if they took their eyes off the hide blind. I lost a few for her being ever so slightly crooked in basic position, and maybe another 1 or 2 for the additional 2 steps after the stand out of motion. The big killer was that she came back over the jump waaaaay too fast and ended up being crooked and bumping me in the front of the retrieve over the hurdle.

That's what I taught but wasn't sure. You two are a great team, do you plan any world championships with her in the future?

Thanks! Not sure. Our plan right now is to try for the Working Dog Championship and maybe the AWDF in the spring and take it from there!
