Vito's Halloween Agility Weekend- Happy birthday!


While I was at the Ian Dunbar seminar on Saturday, Vito was at the agility trial with Daddy.  Thank you honey :)  A bit nervewrecking for me to give up control, but well he did practice running Vito in agility for all of 3 weeks!  Actually, I was really happy with how they did.  Vito broke some startlines and got Adam into a bit of trouble with being in the right position, but overall listened nicely.  They even managed to qualify in 2 out of the 4 runs, fullhouse and wildcard.

Sunday I was able to go and retake control of my puppy!  I was very happy with how we worked, much more connected and listening then the last goofy trial.  He is continuing to pick up speed every trial and soon I hope to have the confident dog I have in practice. 

Running contacts were beautiful every single time, even with dad, and really great commitment to the next obstacle.  He was even able to do two rear crosses after the dog walk and the aframe.  We did fail on a right turn I wanted to practice in jackpot as he continued to run straight, but at least his striding was lovely!  I wouldn't say he is completely confident on the dog walks in trials, as he even did a quick sniff on it during standard today, as well as the teeter.  But really no complaints today and we even managed to get our first 100% Q rate!!!

Vito turned 2 today as well! Happy birthday little man!
