Robbie's agility career is going well. His first trial was one year ago (Feb 1-3, 2013 - he wasn't quite ready), and the last weekend in October, Robbie completed both his AX and AXJ titles and earned his first 15 MACH points. He currently has 3 legs each toward MX and MXJ, and we had our first Double Q February 1st, exactly 1 year from his first trial.”
“I've had trouble staying patient while he grows up! He learns quickly, but has a mind of his own (his primary nickname is "brat"). During his early days of competition, he was as likely to go under jumps as over them, and he loves to fly off the A-frame and dogwalk (perfect two-on/two off contacts at practice, but will launch off during competition and hit the ground running.) We had a long stretch of "perfect runs except for incomplete weave poles" - he didn't want to slow down enough to do them! He has now figured out that he gets to move on to the "fun part" more quickly if he just does them. He's beginning to settle in and become a bit more reliable, and I am thrilled with him!
