Mutt Posted November 20, 2005 Report Share Posted November 20, 2005 Well Blaze and I survived our first season of agility, what a ride. We started training this past Febuary and started trialing in June. We accomplished alot for just starting out. Blaze is a very fast dog and very obstacle focused. Distance work is a none issue but control at times can be a problem but we are working on that. I had asked the question on this site earlier in the year on how to slow my dog down. I was told never to slow him down but to learn to handle him properly. We took handling classes from an experienced handler that is used to fast BC's and it made a huge difference. Blaze has had some amazing runs and some serious train wrecks but that is all part of the learning curve for both of us. Our last standard run this year will be one to remeber for awhile. course time was 72 secs and he run it in 35.34 secs with a 5 faults from a very close missed contact on the dog walk. We didn't get the Q but did get judges choice for the day......We have alot to work on over the winter but that will be time well spent working out some handling bugs and hopefully come spring we will be running better as a team. Here is a link to some pictures from one of his trials. I am very proud of my boy and am really looking forward to next year. It's gonna be a long winter.
