No, this is at MasterPeace. Charles River and Concord both hold their trials there. (one Sat. and one Sun.) It is JUST obedience trials, no breed stuff. The judges said it is the biggest obedience trial the've judged all year though. It just feels smaller because there aren't all the breed rings going.

Yeah, I didn't see about your little joke on Tammy until it was too late. (I suppose I could say a BELATED Happy Birthday now!)

I think that it's doubly bad because it's RIGHT after the long stay. So when you call them, they are SO happy to be released that they have a hard time containing themselves!

I would rather have the body-slam recall than the 'meh, what have you done for me lately?' look.

Congratulations!!!

Great going! Even though he slammed in to you on return...it's really a compliment to you that Kodi after all the training you do...still gets excited when called. More often dogs that have been competing for awhile will lag on the recall. Congrats! Fingers crossed for today, I really don't think it's necessary, you'll both do great.

He WAS good again today! We were second again, this time with a little lower score, a 195. We lost 4 1/2 points on the heeling for floor sniffing, but most of the other dogs were sniffing too... not sure what was on the floor, but SOMETHING they all found interesting. The other half point was because his front was a bit crooked on the recall. There were pieces of tape on the floor right near where we needed to stand for the recall, and I KNEW they would attract his attention. Fortunately, he veered a bit to one side, but he didn't stop to sniff them or anything!<g>

THEN we got called back for a run-off! It appears that for arcane, AKC committee reasons, a run-off at BN level is an off-leash heeling pattern, even though many of the dogs haven't ever BEEN off leash before. Fortunately, all of Kodi's Rally experience meant that off leash heeling wasn't an issue for us at all. The other poor dog turned around and stood staring at the judge when she walked close to the pair as they were heeling. So we ended up in second place and the other dog was 3rd.

I guess it was good practice, and I couldn't have been more pleased with my boy, no matter how the run-off ended up.

Oh, and I DID ask someone to video us, but he messed up, put my iPhone into camera mode rather than video mode, and didn't get anything. Sorry! You'll just have to take my word for it this time!
