Agility Trial Pics

May 13th, 2007, 04:42 PM
We got a second place ribbon yesterday for AAC gamblers. We had 16 points, and completed the gamble, needed 20. And a bad standard round that involved peeing in the ring.. but we haven't been outside in 11 months for agility, and it's our first trial..

Today we had a fantastic standard round.. got 15 faults between a teeter fly off, and Cider visiting the ring crew which was counted as a tunnel refusal but took 2nd place. Was an awesome run though. Followed by a jumpers round that involved an in ring poop (but it wasn't stress she HAD to go..)

Not bad for the first time.

Congrats to you and Cider. Well done :thumbs up .

Question, do they make the tunnels in various sizes so that the big dogs can fit?

May 15th, 2007, 10:41 AM
LOL, no.. Each organization has a tunnel size, most of which are all the same or within an inch of each other pretty much. I've seen danes go through, so it can be done, but probably not long term the healthiest for them.. They kinda crouch going through, versus most dogs I saw compete this weekend could just run.

When we were just just starting agility I had my heart set on a dane as my next dog, and I wanted to do agility with them. In future it may still happen, I'd still want to do agility, I just don't think they'd be as competitive due to their size possibly, and I'd be worried about their health after years of weaving I think.

Doesn't really matter right now, as my next dog will be another cocker. Gives me time to decide on that future breed and learn more about sports to hopefully do it safely when we do get there.

Congratulations! Looks like you guys had a lot of fun. I'm jealous. I used to do agility with Shadow when she was younger and still a fairly dog friendly girl. She loved it as she is a speed demon. She now uses her jumping skills to jump over the fence in the yard. I may not teach my next dogs to jump...:laughing:

Oh my goodness, you too? Cider escapes over most gates. I've tried to teach her respect and she doesn't jump out as more, but yeah lol. I taught you how to escape...
