Parkour fun (and two new titles)

I got word yesterday that the girls are 4/4 with their All Dogs Parkour entries this month.

Both earned a Level 3 Premier leg, bringing them to 8 out of 10 legs for their Level 3 Premier titles.

Also, both earned their Level 1 Grand Championship titles. Only one leg is required for this title.

For Level 3 Premier, they need a total of ten passing submissions, each done in a different location. Each submission consists of 12 behaviors, with a minimum of eight different behaviors. You can repeat up to four behaviors, and there are no required Advanced behaviors (although you can include them if you want). In addition, five of the entries must include a sequence of five behaviors done as a continuous unit.

For a Level 1 Grand Championship, they have to do twelve different behaviors, with no repeats. In addition, for GC entries, you have to have a corresponding number of Advanced behaviors (one for Level 1, two for Level 2, etc.). Also, each GC entry needs to include a Sequence, which is three behaviors at Level 1.

Now, on to the good part, the videos. There were a couple of minor handler errors in a couple, but not enough to NQ us.

Leo's Level 3 Premier entry.



Lily's Level 3 Premier entry.



Leo's Level 1 Grand Championship entry.



Lily's Level 1 Grand Championship entry.

Watching your videos, I'm wondering what their requirements are when it comes to calmness from the dog (never mind the handler )

I mean, I'm looking at the on/off stuff and the going around obstacles, etc. and seeing Lily very calmly doing what you signal to her...
I think HDD has a start in a lot of those things just from some of his agility work, but he would be likely to get rather frothy and worked up. Provided the actual maneuver is performed (including, I imagine, a time element like stay in place for some # of seconds, for example) do they look at the dog's demeanor and judge something like overexcitement negatively??

Oh....and CONGRATULATIONS on you guys' accomplishments!!!!

Both ADP and the International Dog Parkour Association stress safety, which requires focus on both the part of the dog and handler, hence the requirement for a certain amount of time on an obstacle before getting off. In ADP, it's at least 3 seconds, and for IDPKA, it at least 5 seconds.

The main thing judges are looking for in both organizations is "does the dog look comfortable and confident doing the behaviors". Luring a dog onto an obstacle with a treat or toy is not allowed in a submission for either organization, since the desire to get a treat can override a dogs desire to not get on something. Over-excitement can lead to errors, like them not thinking about where their feet are (which is why spotting is important).

As far as overall demeanor goes, it depends on the individual dog. Lily is typically more "up" than Leo, regardless of the circumstances. Ilka was several notches higher than Lily. The first dog to earn an ADP Premier Grand Championship is a super high energy, extremely athletic dog, who also has amazing handler and task focus. There is a Shiloh Shepherd who has a Level 5 Grand Championship who is very calm and methodical in everything he does.

One thing that I like about ADP is that, unlike IDPKA, you have a list of behaviors to choose from, and you can select the ones that best suit your dog. For an active, athletic dog, there are a variety of jumps and other movement oriented behaviors. For a dog like Leo, there are a variety of option for getting on something and holding still. In IDPKA, unless you request a modification or substitute beforehand, all dogs do the exact same behaviors. There are a lot of people who prefer IDPKA over ADP for the same reasons I prefer ADP.

And thanks. Premier Championship is a long term goal, for sure. It requires a total of 40 legs, and they are now at 24 legs each.

Which would be an NQ. I don't want to think about how many times we've had to retry something because they got distracted by another dog's pee or who knows what.
