What do you do when you're just geting into a really fun level of Obedience and the dog earns his title? Move on? Methinks not so soon! Just another wonderful thing about CDSP - they offer level championships, so if you enjoy a particular level, you can stay there in the C class and compete for another title. I love Open too much to just stop now, so we will continue on towards Tripp's CDX-CCH. Perhaps by the time we finish that we'll be ready for Utility.
Here is our first trial in Open C. My head wasn't in the game for some reason so we weren't anywhere near in top form. But we still had fun, and Tripp managed to score a 192, so it's all good. :-)
Because he just doesn't have nearly enough yet! ;-) Tripp finished his Open Obedience title at DogStar Activity Center's CDSP trials this past weekend. He is now UWP, UROC, UKC CH Tintlet Destin Parfait CD, BN, CDX-C, RA, SG, W-FD, ATD, CGC, TT, VC Oh yeah! Definitely need to add some more letters to that. LOL!!!
And I will have you know that I had to look that up and copy it here, as I can no longer remember his full list of titles. ;-)
As usual, DogStar hosted an intimate trial full of friendly competitors; always a nice time there. Great place, and not too far away in Acton, Mass. Tripp had a great first run, giving a wonderful performance and scoring a 198. His second run wasn't quite as pretty, but he still managed a 192.5 (not all him, I had several handling faults) plus 1st place, and with that finished his CDX-C.
