colorado brits in agility

It's good to hear others are in this w/ their brits. When I go to agility shows there are mine 2 brits and 1 other little girl. We all are in excellent B and my little girl that I got from rescue is very fast, and lovesit- laughs all the time. Had her first double q at the end of Jan :D

Congrats on the Double Q! :D How many speed points have you accumulated? How long have you been trialing?

The little one is in preferred due to my vet's reccommendation on jump height and a shallow hip- so we don't get speed points- but she usually wins and I would place in the regular div. if she were in it. She has a lot more std. q's than jumpers- 5 to 2. She has been competing for 1 1/2 yrs but had my male brit to train off of. He has been competing for 2 years- has 5 jumpers and only 1 std.- he is much slower and q's but we would never get enough points - so will probably either get masters or go back for a pax. The other brittany is in regular and is fast but I'm not sure how many points she has. She usually places. I think my first dog is slower due to me and having to learn together- ( we've been training for a total of 3+ years)and most of the mistakes are because of me. How long have you benn trialing? :D

We started training Feb '07, trialing in September of that year. Any NQs are my fault. :roll:

It's such a mental game. I'm working on keeping my thoughts focused on the obstacle at hand and not what happened before or what might be coming up. I also have to remember to NEVER think "we've got a clean run" until the run is over.

Good luck. I look forward to hearing about your success. Running 3 dogs is quite a challenge in itself.
