1st trial - Great judge but I didn't realize that in pre-novice on the recall the dog does not have to come front! Argh! She over-shot me and was a little bit behind me and I thought we failed so I called her to the front so she wouldn't make the same mistake again. Turns out if I hadn't done that we would have passed, she just had to be with-in arm's reach.
2nd trial - Jewel stood up as the judge was walking away from the sit for examination.
3rd trial - Ribbon! Jewel got her PCD title!! Yay! I admit it I started crying in the ring.
4th Trial - What did she even do right in this one?? Oh the long sit she didn't mess up. My friend said she couldn't believe how BAD Jewel was for this one, sniffing during the heeling, following me out during the recall..total bomb.
Both Judges at this show were AWESOME! Lots of advice, little tips and incouragement!! It was a small show so they had time to talk to us all.
On the down side I felt like the other people competiting came to the show knowing just about everyone else and I was odd one out. I did not make any friends, I actually barely talked to anyone because they were all clustered around in groups yakking it up.
