Mr. P Minding His Qs

Polo had a good second day at the USDAA trial, Q'ing in both Starters Gamblers and Standard courses. Gamblers requires the dog to do obstacles at a distance from the handler (you can't cross the line on the ground). We practiced a little distance work the weekend before the trial and Polo did well that day but he did it perfectly at the trial and took 1st place.
In Standard, Polo just made it at a second under course time. He was a little slow at the start and on the dog walk, but he picked up speed and did not run off to sniff any spots or check out another dog walking by like he did last year. That's progress in our book!

For Rudy, the obstacle contacts were his nemesis!! Not his best day, but we sure know what to work on.
