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.
An epic end to a great trial this morning at Big Sky Working Dog Club… Anne Camper and Aazhi Loups Du Soleil earned a 100 point FH track!!! Such a privilege to be a part of it!
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!
Kody had a successful day today, earning his TR3 and his StPr3 with 100 points!
Zappa du Loups du Soleil earned his IPO3 with 97 V | 97 V | 87 G pronounced!
We had four entries for the BH (Companion Dog) test with three passing and one, Titus, needing a little more proofing on the long down. Congratulations to Taz vom Patiala with Mike; Toby (Ulysses of Sapphire Mountain) with Clarissa and Markus (Vidur von sontausen) with Kerstin on your new BHs!
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.
