Show-N-Go Spring 2011

We took part in the Azalea Dog Training Club's Spring Show-N-Go this morning. A show-n-go is like a practice competition where owners/handlers can fine tune things in the ring and correct and reward when needed. Being the truly versatile girl she is, I decided to run Mia in open obedience, rally excellent, and novice agility jumpers (standard agility was not offered). She did her obedience runs after one of her agility runs so unfortunately, she was super tired (and a little hot) and did not perform as well as she usually does. However, her out of sight stays were perfect. She even stayed when a bird flew over and landed on the ground in front of her. Needless to say, I am very proud of her for working so hard for me. We had a great time on a gorgeous day and received numerous compliments on our performances.

Getting some tips from the "judge" on our off-lead figure eight (another great thing about show-n-go's - the "callers/judges" offer some great advice and notice things you may not realize you are doing).

Unfortunately, we don't have any pictures from our agility or rally runs. Mia did well and showed much improvement in her second agility run.
Best part of the day - spending it with my girl:)


  1. Wow - very impressive that she is doing so well in Open - can't wait to see her perform in person :) She must have a great trainer!

  2. lol...thanks Linda:) She did well but not as good as she's been doing in training. Which is why I'm not quite ready to enter her yet. I want perfection in training first (hopefully this summer). I would shoot for Greenville this summer but she is most likely going to be in season again...bummer:(
