German Shepherd Dogs and their people.

Ziva at the Onondaga Kennel Association Agility Trial

On Friday, we are still trying for that final JWW leg-it is always something!  This time we missed a jump and then she back-jumped, so even though I am allowed one refusal, the back-jump is an NQ. Worst of it is, she wouldn’t have done it if it hadn’t been for me and I could have saved the run 🙁


We tried Novice fast for the 1st time.  She qualified with a first place and 71 0f 50 points needed 🙂


Ziva’s final Open Jumpers Q & 1st place today!! It was sort of wild handling by me, but Ziva got the job done and placed 1st in the class, so tomorrow we are playing with the big dogs!  She also placed 2nd in novice fast, no video since everyone was either competing in the other ring or in this class.

We did not Q in our 1st excellent run, but she did well.  I tried a lead out pivot for the 1st time and had sucess getting to the A-Frame. Several dogs b4 her run, another dog pooped in the weaves. They cleaned it up, but the next few dogs, including her stopped to sniff. I celebrated the rest of the course too soon and she brought the last bar done.  I was so pleased with how she ran the course.


Here is the obligatory bling photo for the weekend!
