Derartu and Alex achieve their Rally Novice title at Mt Baker Kennel Club obedience trial on May 18, 2013.

With some really pretty teamwork and as Derartu says “My first time ever with no points off for a tight leash,” she and Alex achieved their Rally Novice title last weekend. Congratulations, Mom and Dad are proud. Keep up the good work!

As we prepare for our show this weekend, after a couple of months break, I’m posting this picture to remind Derartu that yes she can get that final rally novice leg. Go Alex and Derartu!

Knixa Wins Another Best in Miscellaneous and Earns Novice Rally Title

Knixa wins Best in Miscellaneous at Seattle Kennel Club 2013.

Knixa wins Best in Miscellaneous at Seattle Kennel Club 2013.

It was a big day for Knixa today as she took Best in Miscellaneous in the big group ring at Seattle Kennel Club. It’s been a while since I’ve been in the group ring so it was fun to be back there. Maybe those handling classes are starting to pay off 🙂

Earlier in the morning Knixa got her 3rd qualifying score to achieve her Novice Rally Obedience title – not too bad for a nine-month-old who earned 2 of the legs in the stressful atmosphere of the biggest shows in the NW. We’ll continue to perfect our heel work on leash and dealing with distractions by working on our Beginner Novice Obedience title next.
