Today Dolce had his first go at Rally - O Advanced. Its the first time he's ever trialled off lead and i am so proud of how he went. He qualified with a score of 83/100. He gave me such great focus and surprised me by sticking by me for the whole course. There were a few dogs on the day who took off from their owners and had some fun running around and i was glad he wasn't one of them.. Whilst i'd mostly predicted he would be a difficult 'boy' he seemed to use up all the unresponsiveness outside the ring as he turned on as soon as we were inside and was just brilliant the whole time.
Mischa was also entered. In Excellent this time. But i mis-timed her entry when a dog ahead of us was absent and as a consequence didnt have time to settle her in. Hopefully i'll be more organised next time.
