CATC Show N Go

Yesterday I went to my first-ever Show N Go! It was held at the training club where I go for practice every Wed. that we have free. We did two runs of an excellent standard course (easier than most excellent courses, though). My first run was clean but slow and I was very sniffy. I did the chute though with very little hesitation and my dogwalk was fairly fast. I did manage to finish under course time - 60.14 sec/ 62 sec. My second run was faster but not clean. It started out well and when I came out of the tunnel, mom noticed that they forgot to lower the table for me. I can easily jump up there (which I did) but mom was a little freaked out about it. (In class last week I did a table that was set two high and I hit my muzzle and my leg on it on the way up but I was ok and still went to the table and still took the chicken, etc). Then I refused the aframe - don't know why but I thought I should go to the tunnel there - and mom - even though she is constantly telling herself to keep going - told me it was wrong, called me back and had me do the aframe!! Lucky for her, it didn't bother me and I stayed happy. Then mom skipped the jump before the teeter. After that I did a very fast for me dogwalk and mom surprised me with a piece of chicken! WooHoo!




So overall, it was a good and fun experience! And unlike a real trial, I did two runs in an hour and was on my way back home! Can't beat that!


Gotta zoom!

Good job Ricky! Your dogwalk has gotten so much faster, and you don't seem nervous at all about doing the chute! That is just super.

Ricky you are doing so well and you look fast too. I don't know how you learn to go backwards that looks like it is hard to do. Good luck with your next agility

wow, CHicken suprises are always the best! Two runs in an hour and able to head home, that is SWEET. I thought the first run got faster and faster especially after the chute and the dog walk was soooo awesome, GREAT JOB RICKY! Second run it looked like you really got going and it did not look like that taller table even phased you. I am really glad you were able to get video!

Great job Ricky, and fun too! That's what we call Show and Go's up here, Fun Matches. In fact that's probably all I'll ever do with Katy in agility, she'd still get the fun and we wouldn't have to be there all day! LOL! That is if she ever actually thinks agility is fun...
