Kodi's Latest Rally Adventure

Kodi rocked it again at the Monadnock APDT trial in NH. We entered 6 classes, and he Q'd in all 6. He earned his RL2X (level 2 championship) his ARCHX (combined level 1&2 Championship) had two perfect scores (210), including one at level 2, and took a first, a second and two third places.

In the level 2 class on Sat., there was an "Offset Figure 8", which in APDT, is FOUR bowls full of food. Every time the dog sniffs, it's 3 points off. If you can't get the dog to come back to you (which has happened to me twice) you NQ. On this course, you had to pass right by the bowls twice before even entering the figure 8, then later in the course, you had to JUMP right toward them. A LOT of dogs NQ'd. I was SO proud of him for coming right back to me after his one "sniff session"!

On the second day, since he had already earned his ARCHX, I moved him up to level 3 for the first time. We were the LAST dog to go in the trial, it was after 6:00, and I was afraid he'd be too tired to work. He Q'd with a second place and a score of 195, doing all the "big boy" exercises, including the recall over the jump and the bonus retrieve.

Here are two videos from a friend. I've got to see if his level 3 run is on my phone... the person taping for me had some trouble, so that will have to come later. The photo is with the judge after winning his ARCHX.

That's always my goal, Robbie! If he's not having fun, it's no fun for me!
