OK, TD Rally is only in the UK, but's it's still a world first in my book! On Sunday we had our last trial of the year, and Ellie gained the last Qualifying score she needed to become the first dog EVER to gain her Level 3 Title!!! And my friend was videoing it so I can see it whenever I want - and she even left the food bowls alone, which as you can imagine hardly ever happens! I am so proud of my little girl, she goes down in the TD Rally history books. She is the only dog so far to have earned this rosette. My friend's dog will get hers next time and Hetty got a Qualifying score too and is only 2 more away - but at the moment it's just Ellie! And it was her best score yet at that level, 188 / 210 - would have been an Ace if I hadn't done some careless footwork with a pivot. She will mostly retire from L3 now as to go on and get a championship requires 10 scores over 180, and she doesn't often get that high a score as we don't do enough training, and even if she got that high every time, there are only 3 or 4 L3 trials each year, and as she's nearly 10 years old it's unlikely she'll be competing long enough. There's the new Pre-Level 2 we can play with and get a Title in that hopefully. :YAY
