That's really tough when you're running back and forth between rings. It's hard not to get tense under those circumstances, and they feel that pressure too! Great job for the two of you!

I get nervous at the best of times, and I'm new to this rally thing (the woman I train with hates rally, so we don't do a lot of it). I don't recognize the signs right off, so i have to really read them. So, not doing the walk thru or knowing the course ahead of time was a big challenge. I'm sure my stress affected Gemma. She did well, but was really lagging on the course so got quite a few deductions for "lagging" and "out of position". Her score in the end was respectable and we actually beat another dog in time for second place in the end so i guess i shouldn't complain, but frustrating when i know we could have done a lot better. There are 2 more trials tomorrow, so 2 more chances to shine!
