My little Havanese girl RULED in Beginner Novice Obedience this weekend! We won 1st in our class Saturday and again today. Yay!! Needless to say, I was so proud of her
Both days there were only 6 dogs in our class, BUT both days, Layla was the only dog to qualify. She may be little, but these Havs are mighty! She beat out an Aussie, Lab, a Corgi and others. We got a score of 187 on Sat run and today we got a 190. There's still plenty to work on, (mostly my handling though) our heeling and she didn't sit on the recall. As the first video shows, I need to work on not being so fidgety at the start of each exercise. Geez, I was embarrassed to watch myself
I know I said we were competing in Advanced Rally, but I pulled out on Sat morning. We had run throughs on Friday evening, and with no treats, I just didn't have a dog, and I wasn't going to beg her to heel by me through a whole course. I think it was the right decision, even though if we'd have qualified each day she would of gotten her Adv Rally title. Plenty of more shows for that though.
I had so much fun and I think Layla did too! I attached the second video cause she's just so darn cute prancing after we got our ribbons! Oh yeah, don't mind her haircut, please, lol. She had a grooming appt on Thur and what was supposed to be a 1-1.5" long puppy cut, didn't turn out that way. Don't tell Layla though. I'm watching grooming videos after I post this.
