On Friday evening Ivan was in his second Rally Trial. The trial was held by the Wachusett Kennel Club in Fitchburg, MA. Ivan qualified with a score of 94 for his second Rally Novice B Leg. I will attach a link to the video. If you view it, we lost 3 points when I repositioned my feet in the first part of the 1, 2, 3 Steps Forward exercise. We then lost 3 points at the About Turn Right. I think Ivan got confused because the exercise was too close to a large post in the ring. I was very pleased with his attention. He finished 8th out of 22 dogs at two days shy of his 8 month birthday!
