The girls did pretty well at their trial yesterday, Hetty got her Pre-Level 2 Title (they do most of the level 2 signs but it's mostly on lead, so a bridge between levels 1 and 2). And she got another score towards her Level 3 Title, she only needs one more but we need to get any judge qualified first before she can do that! Ellie also got 2 Qualifying scores in Pre L2 and Pre Veteran L2. I've been having increasing trouble with her sits over the past year or two, she is 10 years old so I wasn't sure if it was physical or if she was just playing me for a soft touch. I took her to a physio and she had a couple of sessions identifying a treating a few minor aches and pains, and we've got some exercises to help her core body strength. Now I'm sure that she's got no major problems causing the sit to really be painful, I gave a big lure and a very positive command and I got her to do every single sit on the course - and there were a LOT on this particular course! Of course we lost the lure marks, but at least she did it! :joy

Owned by Hetty & Lottie (blenheim CKCS) and Katie (tri CKCS). Always missing my Henry (blenheim CKCS) 13/4/02 - 4/6/10, George (buff cocker 10/4/02 - 6/8/16) and Ellie (tri CKCS) 7/12/04 - 22/12/17.

Spaniels are the best dogs!!
