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. :smile2:


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

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! :wink2:
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.:grin2: 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. :wink2: 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!

I know I am a little late but congratulations to you both! How did it go, anyway? Also excuse my ignorance but what venue hosts this? Haven’t heard of agility combined with IPO!
