The first class we tried was Jumpers. This is a course consisting of only jumps and tunnels. Sawyer did pretty well but on the very last jump he went passed it and apparently that's an NQ. With the other obstacles the dog was able to pass it and the handler could call them back to do it, unless the dog took another obstacle, but that can't happen on the very last one. After watching the video I see I started to slow down so Sawyer came into me. Handler error, shocker!
The next class was Touch N Go. This class has contact obstacles, tunnels and hoops. Sawyer started out slowly and about half way through he picked up speed. As he kicked it in gear I thought "oh crap, he's picking up speed and I have to keep up". Right before the end of the course was a discrimination between the dog walk and a tunnel. My dogs always choose the contact obstacle because they are rewarded there so often. But not this time. Sawyer went right in the tunnel. Looks like I didn't turn enough to direct him to the right place, handler error, again. He also missed that darn last hoop again!
Last up was the Regular class. This class can have any of the obstacles used by NADAC. The second obstacle on the course was the weave poles, our weakest obstacle. Oh well, we were there and was still going to give it a go. Glad we did because Sawyer did great and qualified! He even went through that darn last hoop! At least it was a good ending to the day.
