|It seems we, Alva and me, fell into the world of obedience. I've trained her basic obedience and some tricks. Obedience because I wanted to enter BH with her and tricks were just for fun. I had no intent to compete in obedience. I was more interested in agility but we had to quit it because Alva has bad hips.
This summer it changed. My aunt finally managed to talk me into entering a trial. Some practice and there we were, at our very first official obedience trial. It was last weekend. Well, we placed third and got enough points but I wasn't overall happy because Alva got nervous during the trial and almost ran off the ring. Poor Alva, she was probably just confused why she had to perform several moves without a reward and her handler doing stuff differently.
Well, I'll work on our problems and I've started to train the moves of the next class. She already knows some of them but we have to polish them and finish the rest. I am actually thinking to continue our career in obedience!
So, any obedience nuts around?
