Trials

The tollers have done 2 more agility trials since I last posted.  One day of USDAA the first weekend of March and then we just got done with 2 days of UKI this past weekend.

It's just hit me that Vito has really settled into a nice, consistent agility dog.  He has come a long way since I was close to retiring him a few years ago!  Recently just his first run of the day is his slower run and then he's been deciding to run for the rest.  He's never been much of a morning dog.
I still limit his runs to 3-4 the first day and generally 2 on the 2nd day if I do one.

No video of his USDAA runs but he went 3 for 3, even getting a difficult weaving gamble!
UKI he was 4 for 6 with all very solid runs.  So close on this super fun jumpers course!



Zumi is also maturing nicely alongside just a tiny bit of "whee!" runs.  USDAA she was incredibly solid for her 4 runs.  Listening to cues!  I still have a long way to go though in really learning how to handle her.

And we still have some focus issues with people distractions.  She kinda loses her mind with her favorite people still.  Flail!!!
Grandma was nice enough to visit again for the UKI and Zumi couldn't quite handle it for her first run.  Especially when she lost track of where she was!  Second run was better so there is some improvement going on.
Run #1 where I hardly had a dog:


And her last run on saturday in the challenging masters heat class.  Sucked into 2 tunnels but I was proud of her on an advanced level course:


Final run of the weekend was the master challengers standard course which she came so close to qualifying but just had to rush to the dogwalk!  Video is pretty low quality but it was my favorite run of the weekend!:


Things are kinda coming together!
