Chase’s Agility Runs from Sept 6-8

September 13, 2013

Doranna Durgin ran Chase for me in Novice Preferred Jumpers and in Open Preferred Standard at the SWAT Agility trials last weekend.  Her husband Tom took video.  So, for your viewing pleasure, here are Chase runs to complete his Novice Jumpers title and to get the lay of the land in Open Standard.  We were very bummed about the dogwalk in Open Standard.  Chase — who is very green — actually bailed off (for the first time EVER), other dogs flattened out, did a stutter step, stopped for a moment.  But for the dogwalk issue that would have been a clean run, nearly 30 seconds under the Standard Course Time.  The dog loves this game.  Thank you Doranna for making him look so good and thank you Tom for the video.  There may be some Excellent Beagle runs at the end of this video.

    That was AWESOME! Almost as good as being there! Good job, Chase and Doranna!

    So great to see Chase doing such a great job, and looking like he’s having so much fun. And a nice bonus for me to see those beagles at the end. Before I became a Cardi nut, I was a beagle nut.

    Chase is getting awfully FAST! You’ll be needing a few more of those knee shots, I think 😉

    So does he like this as much as his sheep?
