Aiden at the PVKC Agility Trial – Day 2

Yesterday was day two of the Pioneer Valley Kennel Club Agility Trial and it was not a good day for Aiden.

It was a very foggy morning during the walk thru for Premier Standard.



Aiden’s first class was Premier Standard. He got off to a good start but missed the correct entry to the weave poles. Then he had a slight hesitation at a jump and the judge called a refusal. Overall it was not a bad run.

Next was Masters Standard Preferred. Aiden was wound! He did the first three obstacles and then kept going straight when he should have turned to a jump. I got him back on course but then he knocked a jump on a turn. As Aiden was on the table Jack went to zoom in with the video but hit the wrong button and the video stopped.

The sun came out and it started to get hot. Aiden and Dylan relaxing in the tent.


…and waiting for a treat


Aiden’s next class was Masters Jumpers with Weaves Preferred. This did not go well either. Aiden knocked a jump, went in the wrong side of a tunnel and got a refusal for spinning at a jump!

It is a 3 hour trip home so we decided to start taking the tent down and packing up the car. By the time we had everything ready to go it was just about time for the Time to Beat class to start. As Aiden was entered in it we decided to stay. Aiden had a great run and set the Time to Beat. He won the class and earned 10 points.
