Busy weekend for the girls

Postby Nichole » Mon Aug 29, 2011 12:58 am

Last weekend was SBTCA Nationals up here in Seattle. Busy weekend! I opted to represent in my own little way in the rally obedience ring. We had fun! It was warm and a lot of the dogs melted.

We entered in Novice A. In the end both girls got 2 legs towards their RN title. Bonus of the weekend was getting to meet Pirate! (and Sarah, of course). Sadie kinda told him off for trying to hump her :kiss:

This was our setup. Vi is dog reactive so I set up a little fortress around their crates. Sheets blocked the visual and we had some shade screens up over top (not pictured). Worked out pretty well!

Trying hard to get Vi to follow me on a right 360 - I had to cheer lead both girls LOUD to keep them moving and focused.

Celebratory make out session after we finished. YAY VI! All done!

Sadie was so happy to be done and heading to the shade

Crashed out cold afterwards. Good girls.

I haven't taken one of the plaque! I just haven't taken the camera out since we got home to do it. It was all I could do to upload the pics I had taken all weekend.

So yes, there is also a plaque :tongue:

Awesome work! :headbang: I have to make a "fortress" too for Dakota. He's generally good about it, but some people think their dog needs to meet every dog they see.

Thanks everyone! I'm not sure what I'll do with the awards we got. This was the first time we did something that hands out rosettes so that was kinds fun. We've been doing flyball for a while now but it's not an akc sport so they don't usually get stuff to hang up and show off. We decided winning stuff is fun and we should do it more often ;)

I'm getting a couple of kennels to set up in my office so I'll probably set something up there with the rosettes and stuff.

It was nice meeting and talking with other staffy people who do performance competitions. I think I'm the only one here that does any sports with them. Maybe I'm wrong and I just haven't met them yet. As far as I know Sarah may be the closest staffy person who does. I'm definitely looking forward to diving into agility this fall.

I should mention there was another local gal doing rally with her staffy pup. I didn't mean to downplay that. They did very well for their first time out! I was more referring to the other sports over obedience. I wish there were more out there :)

Heather Ringwood is in Olympia area, I believe, and she does agility. She hasn't been doing AKC lately, but she said she'd be doing more now.

I'm glad to glad to hear there are even more performance staffies around the area than I even realize!

Violet's number one favorite thing in life is snuggles and kisses. When you scoop her up in your arms in that cradle position she melts like butter.
