APDT Day 2
Trial 3 Level 1 204 Honestly Magic looked and acted like he really did not want to play today-but he's a good boy so without any entheusiasm he did do as I asked. So as a reward we went outside and played fetch for a while. Level 2 208 Fetch helped, he was much more up and ready to work. Level 3 204 Good job on a tough course. Yes a few points but for a dog who hates heeling and a course with lots of turns and heeling I am very happy with this.
Trial 4 Level 1 202 Again, on leash, not his favorite. Level 2 200 5 points off on each moving down-this judge felt he was too slow in his downs. He always tucks his foot under and does go down slower than many dogs, but he did respond right away, he just does it slow. Oh well I can live with that too.
I really enjoy doing APDT trails. More than any other rally that we have played in so far. I love the difficulty and length of the courses, the married signs and the bonus exercises.
