It has been a very tough year for my Andy Boy. He has been weighed down in the ring by stress,gone barking at the judge, scribes...everything scared him, the people at the show, he couldn't keep his mind on the course and his job...but I have worked very hard at getting him to focus and I really believe that he is where he needs to be now...I am so proud of him.
Hope you enjoy his movie...on to Advanced now for Andy Boy!!!
Kisses to his girl Star!

Congratulations on the AD. I had to stop to think what title that was -- we haven't done USDAA for a few years. Andy certainly had plenty of focus on that run.

Congratulations Michelle and Andy! I know a whole lot of work goes into your training! Way to focus Andy!

Now for those of us still trying to figure this all out... exactly what is an AD?

The United States Dog Agility Association (USDAA) title AD = (Agility Dog). It requires 3 Q's in Standard (i.e., think obstacle course) Q's plus 1 Q in each of 4 games (Jumpers, Gamblers, Pairs Relay and Snooker) at the starter level.

Thanks Colleen:)

Yes,...it seemed to be taking Andy too long to get the 3 Q's he needed in std...so I decided to keep entering the games..by the time Andy did get his 3Q's in std he accumulated 3 q's in each of the games too! So Andy is really ready for Advanced...I hope he flies through advanced and gets to masters!

In the meantime, Gemma gets to begin her USDAA career...she will be entered in Starters in her next show, which will be in Hamden CT....hope Star will be there!
That will be in June. Gemma only measures 11.5" so she gets to run in 12"Championship, where as Andy is 13.78"and he has to jump 16"in Ch...but he has no problem jumping it..in this past year, he only knocked one bar out of many runs during the year.

Congrats! He did a fabulous job - what I liked the most was his wagging tail telling us how much he was enjoying himself.
