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!
