Today, we were successful and got I believe our 3rd leg in Novice Obedience so we will soon be able to add a few more letters after Brew's name - CD which means Companion Dog or something like that. Again, there were lots of handler and dog errors but we managed to get a score of 179 1/2 which means we passed. Thanks to Jo, Sindi and Darin for coming out to support us. And thanks to Kevin for supporting us yesterday.
Brew and I tried to get our third leg in Novice Obedience at the Puyallup show today but it was not to be. Everything was going great until just before the heel free (off leash) exercise - a couple of beagles walked in the door and that caught Brew's attention. Needless to say, he kept looking outside the ring for the beagles instead of focusing on me so we NQ. Will try again tomorrow. On a good note, at least he didn't run out of the ring on the recall but it may have been because the recall was away from the gate. His sit and down stay were good as well so just got to work more on off leash with distractions.
