This weekend Twitch and I went to a new trial site over in Monmouth. The barn is small but that actually creates a quiet atmosphere because people can’t crate in the building. Twitch ran really well on Saturday.
We did Fullhouse first and he was running fast and furious! The way I like us to run together. 🙂 We got the most points for 12 inch dogs in Level 5, the highest level so we got first place! So proud of him with his speed! He did not get the weave entrance I set up for him but I asked him to do it again and he did it great. His other weaves throughout the day were really great!
Next up was Jackpot which didn’t go as well. He refused the Aframe and I was beginning to get frustrated, so I took a deep breathe and knowing at that point we weren’t going to qualify, I revved him up by grabbing at his neck in a playful manor, and he zoomed up and over the Aframe and we went to the table. Not a great run but we finished high and fast. It is interesting to me that it’s the Aframe that he refuses the most.
Next up was Colors. He was super fast and spot on in Colors too and we pulled off a first place in 12 inch dogs for Level 5. So fastest dog with no faults! Go Twitch!
Last was Snooker. I love Snooker. I think it’s a fun game. We again pulled off the most points to get first place in 12 inch dogs for Level 5! So proud of the little man today! We did have one bobble in Snooker where I must not have supported a jump well enough because he went around it. He disconnected from me and it took a minute to get him back, but once I did he did great.
I forgot to update this post for Sunday. We had a good day that day too. We Q’d in 3 of 4 runs again with two thirds and a second. First up was traditional Jackpot which we did not Q in but he ran fast through the opening. No complaints!
Next was Wildcard and we pulled out a fast and fun run but one bobble that cost us some time.
Then we did Snooker. We were beat by two point but we made it all the way through the finish!
Jumpers was last and the little guy was slowing down. He gave me a good run and another Q.
