I am very excited to announce that this weekend Bosley earned his ATChC !!
We needed one Snooker Q to finish this milestone title and when I saw the snooker course map Sunday morning, my heart dropped a bit. It was a tough course with lots of tunnel combos. Bosley does not love tunnels and because of his size, he has trouble powering out of them. So, I picked an opening path that I thought would be the quickest for him and that would get us enough points without needing to do all the tricky tunnel combos in the close. Then, I just went for for it. And we did it! We needed 34 points to Q and we just made the 34 points when our time ran out - my heart was pounding as we were headed to those last couple obstacles as I knew we were getting close to being buzzed off for time. What fun we had on that course smile

So to anyone out there with non-traditional breed agility dogs, don't let anyone try to tell you that you can't do it. Work on the strengths that your dog has and go for it smile

Thanks smile

Cohen, Bosley started foundation training when he was a puppy but we didn't start competing until he was 3. Being a large dog I waited to train him on certain obstacles and I didn't feel he was mature enough to trial (both physically and mentally) until he was older. It took us exactly 3 years from our first trial to our ATCh. We don't trial often - last year maybe 5 weekends and it has been less this year. He moved through the lower levels quickly, but our Masters Q rate wasn't very high (maybe 1 Q a day, sometimes none) so it took us longer once we got there. He turned it on the last couple trials though and those last Qs came much quicker than expected.

Big congratulations.

I have non-traditional breed running Agility too, so it is really nice to see others doing well with their non-traditional breed in Agility!

I have what would probably be considered a non-traditional Agility dog, a Shih Tzu x Maltese. He breezed through his Starters, took a little longer to go through his Advanced and we still have two Advanced Snooker to move into all Masters Classes. I know what you mean about heading for that last obstacle knowing you are getting close to time. Two of his last Snooker classes, one he was on the teeter as it was going down and the whistle blew, the other he was turning the last weave pole and the same thing. He missed out on a Masters Gamblers his last trial by 3 seconds.

Congratulations on getting there, gives us all hope!
