Rally NQ

Post by Alifaire »

Went to a Rally competition today - hoping to get our 2nd Rally Excellent leg. Didn't know the ring would have an open garage door next to the ring. We got as far as the 2nd sign before the 'call of the wild' had Victor's attention. By sign #4 Victor couldn't control himself and took off across the ring toward the open door. I said 'Whoa' [hoping for at least some response]... the judge shouted 'Watch the Gate!' and I knew it was over. :shock:

I did get my hands on Victor and we got out of the ring - together at least! :roll:

We're going back tomorrow - not because I think it will be better but because we need actual experience at trials and in different settings. More training needed...

It's really not fair. Having to concentrate AND perform with such a temptation next door. "What's in the garage to sniff??? Could there be a mouse in there ??? How much trouble can I find as quickly as possible ????" The Brittany brain....... Can't blame him for trying. :lol: :lol: :lol: :lol: Good luck with your next attempt !!!!!

So proud to post that we got our 2nd Rally Excellent Q today! :D :D And just to prove what a Brit can do - we q'd with ALL of the doors at the END of the ring open and the exit opening went right into the parking lot! And even tho there were birds flying around that garage door opening - Victor stayed with me enough to qualify. It was so difficult for Victor to stay with me, he whined and would sit with every command no matter what it was - as if to say "I know you said something so I'll sit but, but, but there's birds out there!"

I'm enrolling in a Rally class that practices outdoors in a fenced area, so we will have lots of practice before the next Rally competition!

So I'm going out this afternoon to watch my first rally practice. I'm thinking of putting Stori in rally in January, but oh boy, do we need to practice on her not getting distracted. Super excited to see what I'm in for
