I love running this dog! He’s just so much fun to run and running him feels good — I don’t feel frantic, I’m getting more confidence with him, and he always seems like he’s having fun.
Our last class consisted of a course that had 13 jumps — no tunnels, no contacts. It was a mixture of winged and wingless with a double, I handled it with two front crosses and a rear.
The first time we ran it, it was near perfect. The first front cross I was a tad bit late on and would have liked to have been a little further ahead. On the rear I was a little late and a little ahead and bumped into Riot.
The second time we ran it, it was probably the closest I’ve ever come to perfection running a course. The rear was not as smooth as I’d like it be, but it’s something I know I need to work on with him. I had lots of distance and really didn’t have to move as much as I probably would have running Cisco on the same course.
He’s already become so much fun to run. I can’t wait until we get a few more classes under our belt.
