Can't wait to see how he does! You've been more diligent than I have about getting ready. Panda heels well, so I think that will help with gaiting, and we HAVE practiced stacking on the table, and having a "judge" go over her. Oh well! Like yours, ours is just a match. My goal is for her to have a good time in the ring.
With Nino, the gaiting came very naturally, and he really likes to perform, as I learned last night. His brother couldn't keep his nose off the ground, and other dogs wouldn't take their eyes off the handler, so I was mighty proud of his show off-ness
I was really nervous about the table, mostly because he has about 10 teeth erupting right now so he's mouthy, but he seemed to understand that it was time for good behavior. I've done a lot of fiddling (ears, paws, mouth), but never had someone he doesn't know do it...oops.
We're in it for the experience and the fun, but I'm secretly hoping Nino comes out on top of his brother heh.
Looking forward to hearing how it goes for you and Panda! I'm expecting lots of photos and video. What day is the match?
