2007 Titles and Awards


Nov 25 - From Florida - Breeze went to her  2nd. agility show last week-end and out of 9 runs she got 7 first places and 3 titles. Novice stan. preferred, novice jumpers preferred, novice fast preferred. Her next show is Dec. 8 & 9 and now we will do reg. novice now. I always do preferred first and then do regular just so we have more time in the ring before we get to the hard stuff. Also we are doing Rally Advance for the first time.  I will let you know how we do . My friend and her dog & Breeze & I went to the beach today and this old guy was walking by himself and my friend's dog went up to him and started barking but Breeze didn't pay any attention to him until he stared yelling and he raised his arm up like he was going to hit her dog and Breeze turned on a dime and went up to him and just growled we had to tell him to be quiet and put his arm down. But I was impressed how Breeze didn't do anything till he raised his arm, I guess she got that from her mom & dad.    Maggie

From Betsy, an email of Briarlea Common Virtue's agility debut! " In the afternoon we did standard, a very nice course. Stryker wasthe first dog to run and it was textbook perfect...we held our contact end position to reinforce the behavior...he Q'd with second place and I think 15 seconds under SCT. If we had not held the contacts it would have been an easy first place!"
