September Trial

September 29, 2012 - No Q's for Kiah, her runs were a bit up and down but her attitude continues  to be positive and that is all I really am looking for now.

Keegs was having a grand old time on his Open JWW run, popped out of the weaves and missed one jump but he sure had fun.  Gotta smile at his antics.  He did settle down a bit for his Novice Standard run and now has his Novice Title in Standard.  He is picking up some speed, we were 10 seconds under standard time where we have been previously close or overtime.  He got a nice Title ribbon. 

September 28, 2012 (excellent only) - Kiah's Excellent A JWW run was a bit fast and wild, she took the discrimination jumps so I was getting her back on track several times.  She kept her enthusiasm and was having fun so that is what counts.

Kiah and I go to the K-9 Agility trial in New Berlin this afternoon for our first Excellent only trial.  The doors open at 1pm and the trial starts at 2pm; Kiah will run only a leg in 20" Excellent A preferred, she is still in Open in standard.  The class goes from tall to small so it won't be a late day for us.  I don't plan to take Keegs but he will be going tomorrow and  I will just set up for him today.  It will be a long day tomorrow with Kiah in Excellent JWW and Open Standard and Keegs in Open JWW but still in Novice Standard which will run small to tall.  I am hoping Keegs will be able to get his Novice Standard title so we will be done with Novice.  It would be nice if Kiah got her Open title too but I am still focusing on her enjoying herself and not getting her stressed.


  1. Sounds like your having a lot of Boxer Fun at your trials. I think that might be the reason they call them trials? :) Boxers can go nuts-o in the ring, but they aaaaaaaaaaalways have fun!

  2. So true, even when Kiah had the terrible zooms, I had to smile because she was just having a blast. Although I do have to admit after almost 3 years it did get a bit too much. We are now both enjoying it at the same time which I am so thankful for.

    Keegs is just having a great time and I love running him with him!
