I had entered Ninja and Isi to rally obedience competition in Drammen today, in class 2 and 3 respectively. In addition had Tesla and Nixon been entered in class 1, and I had gotten stricted commands to not come before they had finished their rounds, because they can’t concentrate with me around 😉 But these young dogs did a great job, and I am very proud of them and their owners! Tesla managed to get 170/200 points, which means her second a 1.prize in class 1. Nixon was a little to curious about the smells in the floor, but managed to get 164/200 points, just a couple of points from his third 1.prize and the RL1 title. But next time! 🙂
Ninja was first out for , and after a rather disapointing round last time a couple of weeks ago, I had a great feeling this time, and Ninja followed me nicely round the whole course. We got some points penalties here and there, but ended up with 180 points, which gave us our first leg towards the RL2 title, and promotion to class 3.
Isi was first contestant in class 3, and because she is quite energetic, she needs a good preparation before entering the ring. I briefed half time, and used 5 minutes of briefing time to prepare Isi and getting her down to earth. When it was time to enter the ring, she felt a little unfocused, but with her perfect attitude as always. We had a great round, and in the end 3 had the same points, but we were the fastest and ended up winning the class with 198 points! This was our last leg towards the RL3 title, and Isi’s name is now NH RL1 RL2 RL3 D’Isolde von de Drift. Next time we will try out in elite class 🙂
