Had my first agility trial slip/slide/fall today. I've seen it happen many times, but never had it happen to me!
Luckily, I was fine.
Also had another first - I took an obstacle myself!
After my fall, when I tried to get my ass back up, I ended up with my feet on the dog walk! I did a perfect one on, one off, while Chewy gracefully went thru the tunnel like I asked.
I was the one who got us eliminated. Apparently, they don't approve of humans taking obstacles! Geez, the dogs have all the fun.
On our next two runs, Chewy decided to pay me back for embarrassing him in front of all his friends.
In this run, you'll see he refused to weave, and then sneakily chose the A-frame at the last second, instead of going in the tunnel!
Our second standard run went much better. He did a flip into the tunnel from the a-frame, and then correctly chose the dogwalk in a dogwalk/tunnel discrimination. However, he was still a bit annoyed with me and ran right on by the weave poles. I didn't bring him back around though, because he had done every thing else so beautifully. Such a good boy.
We had a long wait until our jumpers run. Maybe during that time, Chewy forgave me, because we had a perfect jumpers run, and got our first q in a very long time!
Chewy is a superstar!
