The thing is, to qualify for this event, the dog has to be GOOD at agility So when it slows down on course like that, it's NOT having a good time. It's stress. The owner was just making the best of it, and the little dog was just doing the best he could in a CRAZY environment. THa't not what a dog looks like when they are "having fun" on course.
I am sure this team is perfectly capable of putting in a great run under more typical trial circumstances, but not that day under those conditions. Crowds are notoriously poor at reading stress in dogs.
