Titles Galore!

We finished off National Train Your Dog Month 2011 in style last weekend with a tricks show and a CARO Rally Obedience Trial.

Saturday, January 29, 2011

Our Tricks Show was for any and all dogs and their humans to come and show what they could do! Renee and I also acted as witnesses for those who wished to attempt their their Trick Dog Titles. Six dogs attempted titles and we were thrilled that 5 completed the requirements for titles. I videotaped most of the dogs working and the videos are below!

We were thrilled that 5 of the six dogs fulfilled the requirements to apply for the following titles:

  • Renee & Isis: Novice Trick Dog (NTD)
  • Andrea & Audris: Novice Trick Dog (NTD)
  • Stephanie & Quest: Novice Trick Dog (NTD)
  • Angela & Zoey: Novice Trick Dog (NTD)
  • Donna & Billie: Novice Trick Dog (NTD), Intermediate Trick Dog (ITD)

Our Rally Obedience Trial was small compared to many but it was rather nice to have fewer people and dogs and less hustle and bustle. This meant fewer distractions for ther working dogs which I think helped for many! From a Judges perspective it was nice to see so many dogs working really well – even when the humans got confused and asked them to perform the wrong exercise. This means that the dogs really understand their job and now the human half of their team can focus on learning to walk, understand and perform courses correctly.  When all was said and done we awarded 4 Rally obedience titles to the following:

  • Bella & Renee: CARO Rally Advanced (C-RA)
  • Billie & Donna: CARO Rally Novice (C-RN)
  • Norah & Cash: CARO Rally Novice (C-RN)
  • Brenda & Piper: CARO Rally Novice (C-RN)

Congrats to all our Rally and Tricks teams – We hope you keep up the great work with your dogs!
