Goals for 2010...

I got side-tracked a bit around the new year and now have three posts to catch up on...I'll handle them all separately though. First things first!

Our goals for 2010:
  • Murphy will remain mostly retired. I've vaguely considering bringing him out for the BOTC trial (local) in April - not sure yet what I'll do with him this year. Murphy LOVES being demo dog and he loves helping me teach my CGC classes. I should make more of a commitment to get him out for therapy work.

  • I'd love to get Teller's A-frame contact stuff worked out. More on that on the next post.

  • I don't think we'll be out trialing a lot in 2010. I'm going to stick to local trials and a few travel shows. My goal is to really maximize our trial budget as much as possible. While we are out I'd like to finish Tellers AX (and that last OA leg) and get a couple of QQ's under our belt this year. The points will come with more experience (and with contacts!).

  • Obedience is a crap-shoot really. I haven't been training much (at all) in obedience since the BOTC trial in November. I understand that the cluster that is normally held in July right around the corner will move (at least one day of it will anyway). So that means the next local trial for me is November...I'd like to finish Teller's CDX - and go onto UD (UDX) but it's taking a backseat right now until I can get some more consistent training time in and that might not be until springtime.

  • I'd love to get him out hunting and tracking - but I'm just not sure it's going to happen this year - as much as I'd like to get out there and do those things...
