something old, something new, something borrowed, something blue

Something OLD ...
6 months off of Agility, and Gyp didn't miss a beat on her Dogwalk last week YAY!! This week we are conquering even more in an effort to get her back!!

Something NEW ...This weekend Gyp was entered in her very first Rally Obedience Trial, She came home with 2 High in Classes, 3 Qs (score of 100, 95 and 96) and her very first CKC Title! "Rally Novice". She was pretty spooked in the building with the loud noises and especially our Male judge on Friday. But through lots of play and games outside the ring in atleast 15 sessions over 3 days ... she got more comfortable as the weekend went on, and by Sunday, was 100% normal Gyp - happy and nothing bothering her. It is hard working with a dog with fear issues, but through alot of diligence and patience with Gyp she is now able to recover faster and faster from meltdowns. Her want for nothing more than to please me, and through our special bond, it scares the outside world away when we step in the ring - it is GAME ON. I am so proud of her.

Something Borrowed ...
Kim sent me this photo of Gyp getting her first High in Class!! They we large classes of 12-15 dogs in Novice B, I was thrilled!
