At the beginning of the year, I made one simple goal for Wynston and I; to compete in an agility trial and win a blue ribbon. Well, we are officially registered for our first USDAA trial, which will take place on March 14-15th.
We’ve been working really hard. Wynston is ready. Me…probably not so much. Although I am SUPER excited for the trial, I am also super nervous. Wynston really feeds off my energy so I’m trying to just get pumped up without all the nerves.
The trial will be held at Club Doggie, which is the club where we train. It’ll be nice to have our first competition experience at a place where we are truly comfortable.
Originally, Wynston and I were going to run the starters jumpers course which consists of 14-16 obstacles; tunnels and hurdles. But tonight at class, my trainers convinced me and a classmate to team up for a pairs run. This means that we will each run 9 obstacles in the same ring with our dogs. For example: Jen (my partner) will run the first 9 obstacles with her dog as Wyn and I wait on the side. Then when she’s done, Wynston and I finish it off with the other 9 obstacles while she waits in the ring on the side. Honestly, we’re both beginners and we’re both a little bit crazy, so I am ecstatic to get the experience!
If you’re in the area, come on by to the trial and check it out! Wynston and I will be running on Sunday, March 15th!
