|Keltic and his K9 Kup ribbons|
First up was Steeplechase, notice where Lyne places his leash and Keltic glancing at it and almost picking it up. Since he sees nothing in his line to do he heads off on his own course but Lyne gets him back and off they go. I knew he would like the back part of that Steeplechase, his two favourite obstacles the A-frame and the tunnel nearly back to back. We'll have to work on coming to the hand.
Next up was the Standard, not bad if you don't count the teeter fly-off. Last weekend, it was his first full height teeter now his first fly-off, I think he's gaining confidence on the teeter. Tonight in our weaves class, I did put him on a low teeter and at first he didn't want to do it but one time with a few extra hot dogs and he was doing the teeter just fine again. Almost time to put my teeter in the backyard up to full height.
Last event was Snooker, Lyne was going to do red jump, tunnel, red jump, tunnel and red jump, tunnel before doing the close. I thought Keltic might have run the A-frame after the second red jump but he didn't and he also ran right by one of his favourite obstacles to go back over the first red jump....tweet... goes the whistle and the run is over. What you're seeing on the video is Lyne calling Keltic from the tunnel and doing the second red jump then Keltic running right by the tunnel to do the first red jump again. When Keltic started the course, he picked up his leash that Lyne left beside him and carried it with him over the jump but decided to drop it before doing the tunnel. At a real trial, that would have been an elimination but at K9 Kup since he didn't knock the bar, the run didn't stop there.
I think Keltic had a good time. I hope Lyne did too.
