All the time, effort and training for the past year (two years really) was tested today in Chessie's first agility trial....

First place Q's in both Jumpers and Standard agility! :Clap


Chessie here.... Sorry Solo! I decided to be heir to Rosey's throne today... but perhaps another day I'll try being a member of the buthead club.

Mom here... Chessie was a superstar today. She only had one small missed entry on her weaves (shhhh don't tell her it was Mom's fault!). I was a bit thrown by how fast she came out of the tunnel.. she's usually slow out but she was flying so fast and I wasn't expecting it so I didn't slow her down to get into the weaves. The rest she did like a pro! I do have video .. I'll get on my husband to get it on u-tube so I can post it.

More later ..

Congratulations Chessie :joy -- and you can be heir to Rosey's throne because Rosey isn't going to be on it much longer. She so hated running in the heat today, even if we were under cover, that Mom has decided that after tomorrow, Rosey will not be doing agility until November, at the earliest, and it may be December.

:cool Solo

Thank you all!

I had such a good time! Chessie was awesome! I was a nervous wreck but she was rock solid! Her focus on me and the course was unbelievable! I couldn't have asked for a better 1st outing!

Here is the video evidence LOL Enjoy!

After watching the videos, Chessie has a life-time ban from the Butthead Club! Those were very impressive runs :nw . Certainly better than Rosey's Open Pref Standard runs on Sat and Sun where she has decided that exiting at #10 is ok. I made her repeat the weaves and she did them OK the second time. In a jww's run she paused at #9 but didn't leave poles so I was able to fake-bait her to the end.

It might have been the heat. Rosey won't do agility until Nov at the earliest. If we aren't inside in A/C like at nationals, Rosey just is not a happy camper if it is over 70 degrees.

Wow, amazing videos - loved her attention, and her rock steady wait until told to start! And I can see she knows exactly what your hand gestures mean telling her where to go jump next! I'm not an expert, but it looks like fantastic handling of a fantastic agility dog - she won't be in Novice long!

Way to go Chessie! :joy You guys were amazing. I can't wait to hear about your next agility adventures.

P.S. We are really jealous of nice, indoors (air conditioned?) venues.

OH LISA, THAT WAS AWESOME!!!! If only I could get Emma to WALK right on a leash, LOL. I'm pretty sure she has ADD (ooh, look, a bug....). Chessie is so well trained and I can see all of your hard work. Please post more of her when she competes again.
