Twitch and I played CPE this weekend in Turner. We entered all 4 runs both days. We got 6 Qs for our efforts with some good stuff in there.
Saturday was Jackpot, Standard, Wildcard and Colors. All Level 4.
Jackpot was a fun course with a bunch of tunnels. We ran fast and smooth.
Standard was great except for a dog walk/tunnel discrimination that we failed so no Q.
Wildcard and Colors went off without a hitch with smooth and fast runs.
Sunday was Fullhouse, Standard, Snooker and Jumpers. All Level 4 except for Fullhouse Level 5.
Fullhouse was good. I planned a long, fast running course and we got to the teeter when the buzzer went off. Took us 11 seconds to get to the table so our 36 point score was reduced to 29.
Standard was going great until the second set of weaves when he popped a pole and shot into the tunnel. So we redid that and things deteriorated from there. I wish I hadn’t fixed the weaves and just kept going. It was already and NQ so why bother? Oh well.
Snooker was good. He started out a little pokey but sped up after the first couple of obstacles. Almost made it through 7 but still Q’d.
Jumpers, again a slow start but last run of the weekend so no surprise there. He picked up speed and we had a good strong finish.
Saturday I took Vader with us and he got to meet people and other dogs. Plus he showed some great attention and heeling inside the barn. He got to play with a 10 month old BC named Lock, a 4.5 month old American Eskimo puppy named Riot and an 11 week old Sheltie named Levi. Plus he played fetch with me in one of the fields for a few minutes. 🙂
