I remember at our first trial back together, she barked at me almost the ENTIRE course! According to Soaks I was doing EVERYTHING wrong. Between then and now, we certainly have grown and today, she didn't bark at me once!
We had three bites of the cherry today in JDX and came away with 2 quallies! The third was actually my favourite run of the day, even though Soaks took the wrong end of the tunnel (bad handler!). It was at that moment that I decided to experiment with my handling and give her a little more freedom. Sometimes it's not all about the quallie and this run really showed just how far we have come as a team. She ran like a dream. This is why I love dog sports... After doing this for years, there are still moments that take my breath away and make me so proud of the beautiful dog I get to share my life with.
