Brodie and I attended the UKA Finals over the weekend. It is the fourth year in the row that my little man has qualified but we have never done the team event before. You run the first round as an individual agility run and the second run is a team relay event. There are three in a team and as all three of ours were midi they run the individual run at midi and the relay at toy height! Brodie and I were running with Jenni and Rommy and Chantal and Savannah. Our team name is the 'Shouty Shelties' and it was very appropriate!!
This is the relay course plan
Brodie demonstrating where the team name came from!
This was Brodie's individual run-wow we had fun! He was a bit cheeky on his seesaw and I got in hos way massively before the dog walk but we managed to pull off a clear!
Our team relay was fast and furious! Brodie and I were the middle dog to run and had the right hand course on the plan. We got eliminated for the wrong end of the tunnel after the a frame-I was so pleased with the previous bit that I forgot to handle him! I thought it would put us out of the placings but we finished 2nd overall!!!
Here is a podium picture :-)
On Sunday we went to Stoneleigh for the Agility Club AGM. We were thrilled that Brooke bean was runner up in the Small Grade 4 catergory and she got a lovely trophy. They look very pleased with themselves!
Sheltie contact practice last week!
Brodie has also been doing really well at his Rally classes. I am going to try a competition next year and see how he does. He likes any sort of work really and I think its something that we could do more of as he gets older.
