Show N Go
Annie and I went to Flower Mound for a show n go today. It was a small turnout for novice so we didn't have to wait long for our turn. Our on leash heel was pretty good - I didn't have Annie quite warmed up enough so she got a little bit ahead of me on the sits but was nice and perky for the rest (other than being distracted oggling at the audience). Our figure eight she lagged ( judge said "hurry, hury"). Next was our stand for examination. I hurried Annie on this -she was standing so I pulled on her to sit. Judge told me that was a no no. Oops. Then Annie was just a bit restless for some reason, figdeting with her feet. For our recall, I made yet another handler error. I set her on her sit and then walked back with my hands clasped together in front of me. I remembered I need them by my side so when I turned around I moved them, Annie saw that and zoomed over to me. We did a redo, and she did it quite nicely. Then on to our offleash heel. Annie was actually quite good for this (best to date). So all in all...a decent learning experience.
