We did it!!!

Saturday morning Pixel was the first dog in the Open A ring. I walked in confident in my dogs abilities and I'm happy to report that we did it!!! Our first CDX leg!!!

It wasn't perfect- and she added her own style into the routine (ie no fronts, and barely any finishes, a thrown dumbbell..) but she did all the hard stuff!! The drop on recall has been our biggest issue as of late and she did it without a second thought. That alone made my day!!!

She was the only qualiyfing dog in her class so although her score isn't great (179.5) she came away with a High In Class. Regardless of placement I am so pleased with my dogs effort in the ring- she was happy and tail wagging the whole time. Watching the video (which I'll post later) the happy, stress free Pixel makes me happier than I can say.

What a dog. :)

I'll post a better break down of what she did/didn't do along with the video later this week.

Yay for you and your lovely, happy dogs. Nothing worse that seeing a dog in the ring who performs everything, but shows no joy in the working partnership. Congratulations!

I love seeing obedience dogs happy and wagging in the ring. Congrats on that and on the ribbon!
