There is a big show in Calgary at the beginning of August- it is hosted by the Alberta Kennel Club and is four days of CKC Conformation, Agility, Obedience, and Rally. Jolene and I had decided to go a while ago but I still haven't sent in my entries...(they close on the fourth). Pixel is just not ready for Open and Rally is only on the same day as Agility so I was not sure what I was going to do. And then as I read the premium list it came to me! BRACE OBEDIENCE!!!
I am super excited to try it. I have always wanted to give it a try- the only requirement is that both dogs have a CD. They can be owned by different people, be different breeds- it doesn't matter. It looks like a lot of fun- basically you are working two dogs at once through a whole novice obedience routine.
I think it will be a lot of fun- I've already decided that Wicca will be on the outside as she she is a more powerful heeling dog. I did a little practice with them in the yard already. It will take some fine tuning but I think on a whole it shouldn't be too terribly difficult, and I have a month or so to work on it. :)
I will do CKC agility the other two days- we don't do much CKC agility but Wicca can now jump 4" as a vet so we may start doing more.
Anyway, just was super excited about the Brace Obedience- it's all I've been thinking about all afternoon. Of course I will make sure that someone Videos because it is sure to be very entertaining!!!
Oh- and there is team obedience aswell- not sure I can sucker in enough of my friends to try it. That's FOUR dog/handler teams working through a novice routine. Super Cool...
