He earned 2-3rd place ribbons and a 4th. All of this after a nearly two month lay off while his owner (me) raised a litter of puppies and did not train!
NEWS FLASH #2 One week later, Beau-D captures 4th place at the 2014 All Star Obedience and Rally Tournament in the Super Dog Division. He lost a total of 17 points (two of them handler error-by me!) 2nd-3rd. and 4th were separated by 1 point!! Way to Go Beau-D
In between these two weeks of Obedience competitions, Beau-D and I had a chance to work on a new adventure-Field trials! We spent three days in Michigan with Pat Burns. In Pat’s words, “This dog can easily get a Qualified All Age, well maybe not that easy”. Carol Cassidy also suggested I run him in Field Trials after attending one of her seminar. So, on Friday Aug. 15, 2014 we entered our first trial (with limited training time due to those stinking cute puppies!) We made it through two series of a really tough test. Then he went on to pass a Master test over that same weekend!
