Rally Funmatch Awards – August 2011

Over the Past two Saturdays, we had a (smallish) crowd of folks show up for a Rally Fun Match. For those of you who don’t know what a Fun match is – it’s essentially a pretend trial. Fun Matches give dogs and handlers a chance to practice their skills in a more formal setting than your typical class.

As a rally judge and a trainer,  Fun Matches are my chance to highlight and reward some of the great work being done by people and their dogs that may (or may not) earn them a qualifying score in a ‘real’ trial.

On Saturday, August 13th, participating teams earned the following awards:

  • Renee & Bella earned the Superb Side Step Award for making a difficult exercise look easy!
  • Isis (with Tom) earned the Happy Hound Award for wearing a big doggy grin in the ring.

On Saturday, August 20th, participating teams earned the following awards:

  • Kathleen and Shaylee earned the Déjà Vu Diva Award for performing perfect retries.
  • Kathleen and Ty earned the Superb Side Step Award for making a difficult exercise look easy!
  • Beverly & Skye earned the Dynamite Down Award for nice, prompt downs.
  • Lexi (with Darryl) earned the Patient Pooch Award for keeping it together while her handler figured things out!

Congrats to the award winners – I look forward to all of your runs next weekend!
