Yes, A LOT of agility trials right now... After the runs below, Porter is now only 4 speed points short of qualifying for the AKC Nationals! I purposely entered a bunch of trials to try to get this done sooner rather than later!
Our first run last weekend featured our first-ever trial experience of taking the back-side of a jump:
Not really what I had in mind going into the back-side jump, but it actually set him up pretty well for it!
And our JWW course:
And a QQ! Our 9th!
I ran this next one very conservatively... I knew I was close to being able to get all my points at this trial, so I just wanted to make sure I Q'd! Of course, if I had run more aggressively, I may have been able to actually get all the remaining points on just this run... Didn't think it through completely!
And an NQ:
I walked this course every conceivable way I could run it, and yet I never considered that jump after the tunnel as an off-course possibility :)
We went into last weekend needing 56 points. Now we're going into this weekend only needing 4. Not bad for a little corgi who couldn't Q at all 6 months ago!
So proud of my Porter-Pup!
