Schenectady Dog Training Club - November 3-4, 2012

Another 4am departure and another DARK drive down to Greenwich, NY this past Saturday this time for Schenectady Dog Training Club's November trial. I'm still recovering from the early darkness and the sudden chill in the air (I only closed our pool this morning when I saw snow sticking to the ground outside) so this entry will be brief...No QQ's for Team Magica this weekend. Teller picked up two JWW legs after buying wrong course tunnel entries in both of his standard runs. His contacts were great this weekend - love Saturday's dogwalk contact as I peeled off the dogwalk and got in place to layer a front-cross. Teller ran fast all weekend with respectable YPS.

Kipling continues to grow and gain confidence and maturity in his work - with four solid runs. He added one OAJ leg to his belt on Saturday for a first and Q. Kippie's mistakes were honest ones - Saturday Standard I drove him past a tunnel entry with an over compensate, Sunday JWW he had an unfortunate bar and Sunday afternoon (standard) Mr. Kippie Contact (ahh-hem) came off his A-Frame contact on my lateral movement. OK, back to work for both of us on those contacts - and I'm going to ask him to hold contacts for the next couple of weekends. Just stay there and remember Kippie :-)
