What's Up Dawg? Barking up the right tree.
Woofs from Blenheim Canine Training Club Championship Agility Event (1st and 2nd December) are some cool dog results and achievements from some NDTC people and their athletic pups.
Teresa Tweweek and Buttons the Staffie competed for the first time at championship level.
Yvonne Fraser and Ally (Lagotto Romagnolo) won Novice twice and was 4th in two Starters. She achieved her second AD earning the title 'AD'. 9 starts and 7 clear round making her 'Blenheim Canine Training Club' Small Top Dog for the weekend.
From Janine Stephens - "Bentley and I spent the weekend in Blenheim competing at their agility champ show. Someone gave me a doppelganger dog. The one I competed with definitely wasn’t the dog I’ve competed with previously. We were entered in eight events, 5 on Saturday and 3 on Sunday, and weren’t eliminated in any of them. We came away with 4 official clear rounds, 2 clear rounds but with time faults, and 2 events with 1 fault each plus time faults. In all but one event we were in the top 10 placings against 50 or more competitors. Who was that dog that didn’t sniff his way round the course, take his time or decide that zoomies were the order of the day though there were a couple of moments when this did show, in one instance he was just an inch from heading up the A frame before deciding that he should really come with me and do the weaves. A great end of the agility year, thank you Mr Bentley and all the help everyone has given us this year."
From Elizabeth Winterbee.. Well I'm a proud canine mum - Being an older dog (shes 11), I enter Poppy in just two events each day ..Novice she got a 5 seconds time penalty (to be expected most of the time - she's 'elderly' and got really tiny legs ☺), but got 3 clear round certificates in Starters. First time she's got three in one comp.
