Chewy was entered in his second DOCNA trial last night. It was a very small group of people which was great. Plus, it was about 10 degrees cooler at the farm than it was at my house.
We did jumpers and then standard.
I thought we q'ed our jumpers run. When I saw the NQ on the results page, I was shocked. Apparently, we missed the 4th jump. I had no idea.
But, no worries, Chewy did awesome, held his startline and didn't do any spinning. I was thrilled. He ran 4.74YPS! Holy crap! He stays right with me, so I think if I ran faster, he would have been in the 5's.
Then, we did standard. I don't have a video of that run, but Chewy did great. The run started with the tire of all things, which we haven't practiced in awhile (and half the time he goes under it). Chewy flew through it, and then did a perfect 2o/2o on the dogwalk. Yippee (we've been working on contacts a lot)!
In Wednesday's class, Chewy kept bailing on the teeter, but he did it perfectly in our run. Yippee again!
Our one flub, Chew flew by the weaves. DOCNA doesn't call refusals, so I brought Chewy back around and he did them perfectly.
Soooo proud of him! He got his first standard Q!
Best part...he slept in until 7:30AM this morning!
Now, we'll be working on 12 weave poles, with hopes of entering the nationals qualifier run at the next trial.
