Rally obedience trials
The last weekend in October, Izzie did enter the last show in rally for this year. After a training break in about four weeks started Izzie in rallyns champion level. We were not in our best shape, but we struggled on. In our first start, it was a real misunderstanding between Izzie and me, I chose to disqialify us by petting for her. For me it is important that Izzie feel happiness and safety on the trial, the results are secondary. The second start was better, where we got 86 points.
It has been a long and intense season as we have competed in four disciplines: freestyle, heelwork to music, obedience and rally obedience. After 10½-month long trial season, we are taking a break in a couple of months before the trials start again.

Felt anything but prepared and seriously considered emphasize us as we had not had time to practice enough. Lilly did a great job and got 99 points out of 100! Lilly won the class, she proved once again that she fixes more than what I think. Wonderful Lilly!
Rally obedience trials

He won one class with 89 points and in the other class he got 72 points. This was Hjalmars third and fourth leg in this level and he got the title RLD F and is now qualified for the advanced level.

If you wonder I write about Kristina's dog. The reason is that Melvin and Penny are sibliing, mother is my late Millie. Quintus and Izzie are siblingstoo, Melvin is the father. When Izzie had a litter in spring 2015, Kristina decided to get a puppy from this litter- Lilly's brother Hjalmar.
