Rah's score sheets read like this:
forge .5, forge .5, bump .5 crowding .5 crooked sit 1
interference 1 crooked sit .5 crooked sit 1
crooked front .5
mix and match, it's usually one of the same.
minor's add up, depending on your judge. 2 years and we're still working on interference, forging and crowding
you also lose points for things like slow sits, no sits, you can lose them for wide recalls if the dog really deviates from straight, lagging, moving feet on the SFE, etc... we're just incredibly consistent on where we lost points
he occassionally throws in a no sit (3) for the first halt (which is really just a poor cue from me - so its my fault), but while rah's heeling gets us compliments outside the ring, it gets us hit for points inside the ring. there's a certain crowd that appreciates it - unfortunately, most of them aren't the ones judging me that day! we shall see how he fares in the open ring, off leash is always better than on, the leash is just too tempting for him. i think its his inner struggle not to tug on it that he spends the entire heeling pattern reminding himself "dont tug on the leash, do not go and tug on the leash, the leash is not a tug toy, do not tug on the leash unless mom says so".
