Today I hauled my butt out of bed early & took the boys to an Obedience Fun Match.
It was good to see where Kort is at right now with his training. His heeling was wonderful, he sat every time I stopped & had no "sideways ears". The sideways ears mean things are about to fall apart & he is stressed :(
He did not drop on his recall which was kind of weird as he has been doing it well in class. Next was the retrieve on flat & he started to look at the floor for food, wandered away from me, & did the whole avoidance thing. Amanda suggested I step out of the ring & give him a break then come back in & finish the exercises. That worked like a charm. He did a lovely retrieve on flat & a gorgeous retrieve over the high jump, except for anticipating it LOL! I will take that for now as he ran out with gusto & was happy to jump. He aced his broad jump!! On the out of sight long sit he laid down at the 1 min 20 sec point. He was good on his long down. So we still have a way to go before he can put the full routine together, but I am super happy with him & can definately see his progress !!!
His Rally Excellent routine was awesome, he performed all the stations well & came out with High Score & 100/100 !! What a good boy!
I brought Tate out to play as well, he never really liked to do the whole obedience thing, but every once in awhile he enjoys hanging out with Kort & I. I had my hands loaded with treats because these days Tate's all about the food! He is just so stinkin cute! In the video you will see that he has forgotten how to do a left 360, hahaha, but he had a great time & I am soooo thrilled he is still having fun!
These are the first videos taken with my new fancy digital camcorder :)
