Rylie had his first ever run and he did awesome in his starters jumpers class. I thought I could use a rear cross with him but he isn't ready for that so it caused him to have a fault. I was proud of myself that I could change my plan and hustle my not so little butt to give him a front cross at the next arm change. Although he didn't Q he was the fasted of the four dogs in his class. I was pretty excited about how well he ran.
One of the problems with our training facility is that it isn't large enough to set up a whole course so the only practice we get running courses in in trials.
I have a plan for the rest of the winter for both dogs - more contact work for Max and mostly handling for Rylie. We don't have another trial until March.
