So proud of my little girl!

Layla and I competed in our local show this weekend. She did so good and we received our Rally Novice title on Friday. The run on Friday, we received a score of 96 and got first in our class. Woohoo, I finally have a blue ribbon! It's been since my horse show (hunter/jumper) days, 35 years ago, since I've won a blue ribbon. This show was particularly tough, as it was outside on grass and we have mostly trained indoors. The attached video was Saturday's run, where we received a score of 94, which was also a first place. I really thought that was a generous score as we had some mistakes, but we took it, haha. A dog had pooped in the ring earlier in the day and then another dog peed in the same spot . It was a problem for many of the dogs all day. As you'll see, Layla and I came up to the sign and she wanted NOTHING to do with that area. I guess she was afraid to get her prissy, white paws in the doodoo! We did a redo on that station and still mucked it up somewhat. All things considered and only our 2nd show, I was very proud of her.

Hooray for Layla! Even with the pee and pooh distractions she did well.

I had a similar situation in rally with my intact male Dobe. A female dog peed at the first station, walked in it and tracked it around the course. My Dobe had a Schutzhund 1 title with very dependable off leash obedience. He decided to just sniff the mats around the entire course and we failed the final leg of his rally title.

So again...Hooray for Layla. That little lady did nicely in spite of the stinky distraction.

Oh that was so cute. That's the first time I've seen something like that with the new little ones. Watch out for those competitors that plant dog poo on their shoes and track it around ahead of your turn. LOL
