Another Agility Trial for Aiden

Today the Teamwork Agility Club of Central Massachusetts held an agility trial for Excellent and Masters dogs only. Only two classes were offered, Jumpers with Weaves and Standard Agility. We ususally like to have a FAST or T2B class first to burn off some of the “wild man’s” energy. That was not the case today!

The first class was Masters JWW. Aiden had a great run and he qualified with 1st place and earned 15 more MACH points.

In Masters Standard Aiden had another good run but unfortunately did not qualify and therefore no Double Q today! There was a tight turn from the A-Frame, over the Triple and to the table. Aiden turned towards the weave poles and I was able to call him off them but his momentum sent him just past the plane of the table and he jumped on from the back side which is a fault.

Aiden at the CSSC Agility Trial

Today Aiden was entered in the Colonial Shetland Sheepdog Club Agility Trial in Westborough, MA. Mother Nature decided to play an April Fool’s Day joke on us and even though it’s Spring the forecast was for a Winter storm with 8″ of snow from Friday into Saturday. We decided to take vacation time off work and drive up to Westborough, which is about 2 hours away from us, on Friday. When we left Cape Cod it was raining and when we got closer to Westborough it had changed to a wintery mix. We stopped at the Hopkinton State Park and took Aiden for a walk.

This morning we awoke to more of a sleet storm than a snow storm.


Aiden’s first class of the day was Masters FAST. He had a good run, got the send bonus and scored 73 points. In FAST if a bar is knocked down you can still qualify but you do not get the points for that jump. He qualified with 2nd place for his 10th Leg and his Masters FAST Title (MXF).

In Masters Standard Aiden decided to play an April Fool’s joke on me. He made up his own course, knocked a few jumps and had a grand olde time for himself! Obviously he did not qualify. The course was a difficult one and no dogs in the 24″ class qualified.

After Standard it was still snowing but my friend and I decided to take Aiden and Yasha for a walk in the snow.

The last class of the day was Masters Jumpers with Weaves and again it was a tricky course. Aiden had a good run and was the only dog in the 24″ class to qualify. Obviously he came in 1st place and he earned 13 more MACH points.

Aiden’s friend Yasha was at the trial this weekend also and in between classes they got to run and play in the snow.




On Sunday in Masters JWW Aiden had a great run BUT …..the last bar came down. NQ!

In Masters Standard Aiden knocked a bar over a tricky jump that had him heading right to the wall. Only one dog out of 10 in the 24″ class qualified. Several knocked the same jump.

Yasha was at the trial again today so after they played we made them pose for a photo
