Before this weekend I have ever only participated in rally obedience trials in the beginners class back in 2016. But now, when it was possible to participate in some down regulated fun with the dogs again in these covid times I decided to go for it. So
1.8.2020 and 2.8.2020 me, Kaya and Alli participated in rally obedience competitions here on the Åland islands. Kaya got three qualifying results in open class and Alli got three qualifying results in beginners class. As it was the same judge both days, we have to get one more approved qualifying result each to go to the next level.
It was Alli’s first competition other than shows, so it was really interesting to see how she handled it. In the first competition she was a little distracted, in the last competition of the weekend she was really listening to me. Nice curve and feeling. The last round of the weekend with Kaya also had that feeling that you always search for in dog sports. It was us together, nothing else mattered.
