Aiden’s Day 2 of the MCKC Agility Trial

Today was not a great day for Mr. A. Things did not go as well as yesterday but Aiden and I still had fun!

Masters Standard was the first class of the day and they were starting with the big dogs. Usually in the first class of the day Aiden is super wound up. He loves agility so much that he can hardly contain himself when it is his turn to run. That overall exuberance unfortunately caused a bar to come down in the beginning of the course. I decided to use the rest of the course as “training in the ring”.

The second class of the day was Premier Jumpers with Weaves. As usual Premier courses are very tricky and have several “back side jumps” and “wraps”. Aiden had a fantastic run until near the end when he took an off-course jump. He made it further around the course without fault than any other 24″dog and none of the 24″ dogs qualified.

Our last class of the day was Masters Jumpers with Weaves. Aiden again had a great run and completed all of the “difficult parts” but then in the home stretch he knocked the bar going into the tunnel which was the last obstacle. I was not able to keep up with him and not get the cross in that I had planned and therefore I was on the wrong side. As Aiden was over the last jump I called his name so he would not go in the wrong end of the tunnel…. And down came the jump.

    UGHHH!!! One bar. Too bad you can’t get a credit for enthusiasm-he would win every class.
