This morning, Orso and I competed in our first ever AKC Rally Novice Trial, held by the Jupiter-Tequesta Dog Club in West Palm Beach, and earned a qualifying score of 93 points under Judge Ms. Victoria A. Brown! We need two more qualifying scores for Orso to be able to use the AKC Rally Novice title of “RN” behind his name! Thanks, Judge Brown for overlooking Orso’s Corso antics and my inexperience!
I am very excited about how today went and am so proud of our Buckethead! Karma also drove up and back with us since we did not want to leave her crated for so long, but she stayed accompanied in the Jeep in the A/C while Orso and I were competing since she is too young to go into a building full of dogs. She behaved like a little princess the entire time!
Below is the video footage of the trial, courtesy of Dee Hoult of Applause Your Paws! Thanks, Dee, for filming us and for giving us a solid introduction to rally! A huge thank you goes to Mary Majchrowski of Bravo Dog Training for how hard she has worked with Orso these last few weeks! Orso sends you some slobber, Mary!
