Wow i am really rubbish !!

Well to say a lot has changed would be an understatement! I don’t think I have posted anything about little juicey’s competing. She is an absolute star and I love working her. She has been soooo easy to train it’s unreal! I could ask more from her she has taken me to grade 7 in one season and unfortunately there were no champs left so I cannot wait to do my first champ with her. Chox… well my little brown chocolate dog that was never going to get out of grade 3 has gone grade 7 he had 3 wins last year very close together, my aim for this year was to get the last one and the little super star did it at our first show of the season at mid downs. So now both dogs have their first champs on the same day, hmm I am very excited. I have given myself lots of home work to do, with both dogs, as I went a bit stale towards the end of the season last year and was not enjoying it as much , I think it might have something with the pressure I was putting on myself. I am really looking forward to this year with both dogs and aim to just have fun again!

And I will remember to update my blog !!

Lots of love !

I had forgotten

I completely forgot about my blog. Well without sounding boring Chox has yet again amazed me he has made grade 6 this year I didn’t want I'm to for it as I would have liked to try for the novice Olympia, he won out at Ely he won on sat and I thought it was just fluke, but he won again on Sunday. I am almost happy with his contacts now, just need to persists with weaves and slightly twistier courses as I have done alot of simple stuff to boost his confidence and he is sensitive enough that I can rely on him to turn, it’s my timing that lets us down, and I have made sure I don’t let him know I have gone wrong as I want him to trust me that when I say go I won’t be pulling him off again.
Juice is just simply the best dog to train as she is so willing, she has started to do straight weaves I worried it was too soon so won’t be doing anymore; I am really pleased with her entries and exits! And I am very happy with her contacts, I started see saw training 2 weeks ago and she is the first dog I know that loves it.
I entered her in an introduction class at fox ag. Unaffiliated show , small jumps, jumps and tunnels she was a little star got 2nd , and was against big dogs doing ickle jumps
Both dogs are going to have 2 months off, I don’t want to over do it with juice and think it’s time for her to have a break , and I always find Chox gains more confidence after a break as he is more desperate to play !

well that was grade 4

wellingborough was our first grade 4 show sat dint go to brilliantly on my behalf although i was really pleased with chox i was just not with it. Sunday we both had it and i really liked the agility judged by nigel davis. Chox was fab and went into the lead i didnt expext him to stay there although his round felt like one of the best he has done i just expected him t get nocked down. but he didnt : D. he was wiked in the helter skeler and his time wasn't to far of the lead, i am seein progress.
dexter got 2nd in the jumping one one of the best rounds has ever done.
Sat,, well little ,man did me proud after splating on the aframe in the graded agility he lost drive and i think scared himself so when i went into the 1-4 i was just goin to run it so he dint have a chance to think to hard. and was pleased that he had picked up from the morning but still dint feel hw he has been. but when i went to see where he was before lunch he was in the lead :D and stayed ther :D .. dexter dint feel great today as he has got older he has got more carful on the wet ground but he sill got 4th.

juice traing is coming on great . im really pleased with her contacts and weeves i am not closing them in anymore until i am happy she wil do any angle and at the moment she is getting everything i am throwing at her. i just love traing her because all she wants to do is please and learn .

hopefully another good day tomorow

Newton Heath

Well Dexter is not good at the moment he has been on and off lame for the last few weeks I am waiting for an appointment with the chiropractor so he stayed at home with mum this weekend. We were at Newton Heath sat was not so good I missed walking his agility so the jumps weren’t were I thought!! The novice chum he did beautifully but the tit that I am missed two jumps out .. oops but he was brilliant!! For some reason I just wasn’t on the ball on sat or on Sunday really but I am so pleased with how he is working at the moment. Although he did get 2nd in the grade 3 jumping : ) !!
Juice I haven’t got much to say apart from she is perfect and so much fun! She had a lovely weekend and we spent loads of time together! She also had a play with Natalie’s Ham and he is sooooo cute!!

tunbridge :D!!

Another wicked weekend!! Ketch was amazing (I love him so much need to do some persuading) cheese was semi listening we got round 4 out of the six courses without arguing!
My little Chox man just keeps impressing 3rd and 4th he just doesn’t put a foot wrong just need to remember my timing I cant wait till iv fixed his weaves and he weaves as confidently as he can !!
Good old slippers dog (Dexter) was good on sat but has decided to go selectively deaf lol and OMG he broke his wait in his agility so I put him back so I could hold my contacts and he proceeded to leep of his dog walk two this that he has very rarely done (I could count on 1 hand) bad boy hehe

Dexter went clear in his jumping and just had a pole in the ag. But I was super pleased with him!
Chox was a little star again!! Just slipped of his see saw in ag and went clear in jumping and had a pole in the other!
i have really enjoyed all the courses today!
