But back to the Dream Fields trial, we went for only five events, a Gamblers, a Standard, a Team, Steeplechase and a Jumpers. Beckett was wild in Gamblers, I didn't even think he had enough opening points to Q, he did have the minimum number to Q but no matter as we didn't get the main gamble. Beckett came out of the tunnel and was supposed to get on the dog walk but he came too far back to me and I couldn't get him back out to the dog walk. Next up was our Standard, well you can see how that went.
For Team, my partner had to pull her dog as he had injured a toe. I found another partner but both dogs failed to go clean so no Q there either.
I was getting a little worried that we would end the day without a Q and the ending sequence from jump 14 to 19 of the Steeplechase looked tough.
Next up was Jumpers, we had a couple spins. The first time Beckett stopped himself, the second time, I stopped and got him settled before sending him on to finish the course. We must have been blazing as the Standard Course time was 45 seconds, Beckett's time was 29.38 seconds even with the spinning. He was running 5.48 yards per second, very fast for him. We've been over 5 yps before but usually just over 5. Again, he Q'd and had the best run of the mini Regular dogs. So our day ended very well!
He now needs only one Jumpers for Expert Bronze Jumpers and 6 more Steeplechase for Expert Bronze Steeplechase.
Looking forward to next weekend and Keltic's debut but before that, on Thursday, he will be going to his second agility seminar. He did a puppy seminar over a year ago, this is a Novice/Starter dogs seminar with Daisy Peel. I'm looking forward to it. Going to be a good week ahead, always fun to see the training come together in the ring.
