1st agility title for Mona! Woo hoo!

As the title reads, Mona earned her very first agility title this past weekend! Yaaaaay!!!! We competed in CPE on Saturday and she needed 1 more Q in Standard to get her level 1 Standard title.

How we started the run was kind of a disaster (but funny), i really didn't think we Q'd. So I sit her at the start line, tell her to wait, and walk out in front of the first jump. She's fine, waiting like a good girl, good focus. As SOON as i say 'ok' she runs AROUND the jump right up the A-frame that's located diagonal about 20 ft from us! I just stood there frozen, and thinking 'what just happened', i turned around and here she is on top of the a-frame, stopped, and looking down at me, as if saying "are you coming mom?" I run over there, to make sure she finishes the obstacle safely, take her back to the starting jump (the time has started running). I turn her around, she completes the first jump and is on course finally! She does EVERYTHING perfectly, it was smooth, fast, good contacts, a very nice run, i was thrilled. And we ended up Q'ing with a first place!! You can have 1 wrong course and still Q! Mona loves contacts (a-frames, dog walks, teeter) but i didn't think twice about this one 20 ft from the start line since she had such good focus and attention on me...she's sneaky sneaky! Now i know not to leave her in a wait if there are any contact obstacles close (for now at least...).

Her new title is CL1-R She's Q'ing faster than what i thought she would and exceeding my expectations, she's really enjoying agility, we're having a lot of fun!

I have no pictures from this weekend, still have to decide which photograph i want to purchase from the pro photographer. But here's a fun picture of her jumping through a tire.

That is AWESOME. I am waiting for my CPE number and plan to enter Thanksgiving weekend if the number comes in time. I can see my Kylee doing the same thing, she also loves the contact obstacles.

CONGRATS!!!!!

Sounds like Mona and you make a fantastic team!

Thanks for your description of the run, too! JoZ also loves the obstacles as you described (A frame, dogwalk, teeter), but loves doing them "on her own" - omg! Good to know that in time (as she matures and we help build focus and self control), that can be managed!

You're going to have SO much fun!!! If you don't get your cpe # after a couple weeks, you can always email them and they'll tell you it through email...i had to do that with Mona's (sometimes they're really quick with getting a card send to you, other times not). Good luck!
