Great trial!

A big shout out to everyone in our small but mighty club, Big Sky Working Dogs, for all their support and help this weekend with our IPO trial. Congrats to Samie and Zappa for achieving their IPO 3 with V scores in obedience and tracking, to Carol and Kody for their TR3 and StPr 3 with a stellar performance and 100 pts., to Mike and Taz, Clarissa and Toby, and Kirsten and Markus for their BHs, and to Cari and Teaka for their OB 1.

I am so proud of all of our members, your successes, and also for your determination to get out there and compete even if the results weren’t what you wanted. We’ll keep on keeping on with the help of JJ, Christopher and Drew.

Teaka OB1

Teaka was in full-blown heat, so she had to go last. But once she got over thinking she was going to do a send-away, Teaka and Cari fell in to their working partnership, and earned their OB1 with an excellent rating for all three retrieves!

When you have done all the training you can to prepare for a trial, all that’s left is to hang out and enjoy the relationship. It will be what it will be.
