O’Connor’s first Agility Trial !
On Saturday March 31, 2018 Aiden was entered for one day in the Colonial Shetland Sheepdog Club Agility Trial in Westborough, MA. The weather has been getting a bit warmer, but not too warm, so we felt this was the perfect time to take the puppy as we could crate right out of our car. Due to Connor’s age we felt that it was best to start him off at a small local trial where we knew most of the people and dogs. We were able to bring Connor inside a few times for a little socialization where he was able to experience the sights and sounds of an agility trial in friendly and positive manner. Everyone there knows Aiden and were thrilled to meet an Aiden son.
Aiden has not been at an agility trial for a month and training has been limited with our trip to Michigan and getting Connor.
Aiden’s first class was Masters FAST. Aiden had a great run, got the SEND Bonus and racked up the maximum amount of points possible (80). He qualified in 1st place.
Next up was Masters Standard. As usual Aiden was raring to go! He had a great run and qualified in 1st place earning 28 PACH points. There were 13 dogs in Aiden’s class and 6 of them were GSDs. 2 American, 1 white, and THREE West German Show Line!
After our standard run there was quite a break before the JWW run. We took Aiden and son for a walk. They had a great time and really do like each other.
The last class was Masters Jumpers with Weaves. Another great run.…BUT…. that Long Dangerous Tail knocked one bar. No Double Q for us!
We had a great time and Connor took everything in stride. Good puppy.
