For the opening, I did chute, jump to dog walk to get down to the mini; if I had to do it over again, we would have done jump, jump, dog walk as Beckett was turning into me after the chute and did not see the jump. I did hope to get the mini gamble by sending him out from the dog walk but he wouldn't go so I ran the mini with him and then used the next jump to turn him back over the mini gamble; this time he did beautifully and I was able to send him away to the tunnel (actually I don't think I could have called him off the tunnel). Then we played on the teeter and tire until the buzzer went. I tried using the spread to get him into the main gamble tunnel but it didn't work as well as I thought it would. A better option, that I saw people use, was just to run between the tire and the spread jump moving forward with the dog as they took the tunnel. Beckett did go back to the tunnel nicely the second time and getting him over the jump was no problem at all. I didn't know if we got the gamble in time as, although there was electronic timing the buzzer had been set for mini-veteran dogs who had 26 seconds for the gamble, dogs Beckett's height only had 22 seconds. But, we did get the Gamble Q, our second with 80 points. But again in the competitive 16" regular class, it was only good enough for second; a Jack Russell got a 92 point gamble.
Beckett gave me a little attitude at the weaves and didn't want to down on the table but the rest of his run was nice. He loves the wide open running. It was another Q and this time he placed third; 16" Regulars is going to be tough.
So we ended the weekend with 4 Q's, a move-up to Advanced Gamblers but no title yet, maybe this weekend. Go Beckett Go!!!
