This was a really tricky course for us and I honestly didn't think there was any chance we could make it through the opening without a startline stay, but Peyton proved me wrong. I was so surprised that I almost pulled him off the tunnel afterwards, but he was really listening and hung on - good boy!
Only 6 out of 32 dogs qualified on this course in the 24" class and we finished 6 seconds off the first place dogs in both Excellent A and B - not bad at all considering we spent almost 16 seconds on the table. :)
On Sunday we had another great Standard run until the very last line when an off-course jump called Peyton's name. That was my fault though - I was thinking about the chute on the right and the tunnel ahead on the left and I should have had his head a little more coming out of the tunnel. It was still a really great run - Peyton has no idea what those pesky "Q's" are anyway. :)
We had a fun weekend - we also got our Novice FAST title on Friday and while Open JWW continues to be a real challenge, we did have some nice moments there too.
