WCS Rally at masterPeace

Kodi had a great day with a QQQ, a 201 in level 1, a 208 (1st place) in level 2, and a 206 (3rd place) in level 3. Our second MMX leg!

Karen that was brilliant to watch, well done to both of you. Just one question. When Kodi jumps up by your side, is that part of the requirement or just natural exuberance?

not sure what "QQQ, a 201 in level 1, a 208 (1st place) in level 2, and a 206 (3rd place) in level 3" means … but still love the videos!!

The requirement is just to return to heel. His "flying finish" is his own interpretation. . Sometimes people teach their dogs to do a "pop" finish but with Kodi, it's natural. In the beginning, he used to jump ON me when he did it. (He also would jump on me in fronts, particularly at the end of a recall). That's points off if they jump on you... Can you just imagine if a Labrador did that?!?!? But fortunately, he's learned to control himself better, and can do his flying finishes without slamming me in the process!

Kodi is working on his Master Champion title, "MX", in World Cynosport Rally. (Was APDT Rally). To earn this title, he must have eraned all lower titles, and then must "Q" (qualify) in all three levels at the same trial 10 times, with scores no lower than 195 out of 210 on any "leg". A QQQ is a "leg". Kodi just started working on his MX at his last trial, and has now earned two "legs".

WCS Rally has 3 levels, 1,2 & 3. Level 1 is roughly equvalent to AKC Novice, though there are a few more difficult signs. Level 2 is equivalent to AKC Advanced and Excellent combined, and then Level 3 is harder than anything they have in AKC Rally... It includes exercizes from Open and Utility levels in AK c formal obedience, although they make them a bit easier by shortening distances, and allowing both verbal and hand signals. It's very challenging, and very fun!!!
