Yesterday we left the Cape early to head to New Hampshire for the Yankee Golden Retriever Club Agility Trial on Friday. This was for Masters/Excellent Dogs only. After checking in to the hotel we took Aiden for a lovely walk at the Piscataquog River Park.
Today Aiden’s first class was Premier Standard. As usual Premier classes have a lot of tricky parts. Aiden had a super run but unfortunately back jumped one jump and therefore did not qualify. If you watch the video you can see the judges reaction as Aiden had a clean run further than any of the dogs who ran before him. Overall only one dog in the 24″ class qualified.
In Masters Standard Aiden had a good, clean run and qualified with 3rd place and earned 22 more MACH points.
In Masters Jumpers with Weaves Aiden had a terrific run and was just about to qualify….but knocked the very last jump. So close but no Double Q today!
As this trial was only for Masters/Excellent dogs we were done earlier than normal so we took Aiden back to the park for some off leash fun.
Looks like it was a choppy course in standard for a big dog. Sucks about the last bar in jumpers-at least a few more MACH points to the tally 🙂
