Cinders and I went to the Blackpool Kennel Club Rally Trial and ran in our first Rally Level 1 a class and were good enough to gain a qualifying run of 186. Big Grins all round. Below are some photos of the trial and the new friends we made.
Took the Fart Rally Training tonight. Not done any obedience since doing his Bronze Good Citizen about 5 years ago. Since he likes receiving treats i hoped he would like to try the activities.
For the most part he was more successful than I expected. The one thing that he wasn't too keen on was the final course when there were lots of multiple sits.
As he was keen on watching the treats, which were in my right hand he kept trying to come round to the front to get to them.
It did make me more conscious of the conversation i had with him as we were training. The one thing he did really well was the call front and sidestep.
I will take him to the rally taster day to see if we can progress a little more. Next week is Christmas fun and games week so may have to look out the reindeer outfit!
