2013

May 25, 2013
Emma got her 3rd CDX leg with a 3rd place!

 

 

 

 

 

March 3, 2013
ACSA Competition Obedience trial Emma earned her first two legs in Utility
with a 190-1/2 and a first place and a 194-1/2 and a first place.

Utility skills:

  1. Signal exercise - consists of a heeling pattern (no talking), a moving stand, a down, sit and come - all no talking - hand signals only
  2. Scent discrimination - two times - once with a metal article that has my scent on it and it's put into a pile of leather and other metal articles with the stewards scent on them. The dog has to pick the one that I touched. It is then repeated with the leather article
  3. Directed retrieve - handler faces away from the 3 gloves and the judge tells you which one to pivot to to retrieve
  4. moving stand and exam, then a call to heel 5) directed jumping - dog goes out to the gate and on your cue jumps the jump the judge tells you to direct your dog to. Then you repeat it with the other jump.

2010

December 12, 2010
Emma finished her CDX today (and got a bumper - extra) leg. Yesterday - 2nd leg was a 188-1/2 and a 2nd place!
This morning - 3rd leg and title was a 194 and 1st place!
This afternoon - 4th leg was a 196-1/2 and a 1st place!

She was poised and in control and did a great job and I am very proud of her. See the videos!


October 24, 2010
Shadow earned his TD! It has taken us a long while to even think about entering a tracking test - not because of him, but because of me. Shads was perfect his first time out!

Shadow's new name is ARCHEX Ewe Are Beyond a Shadow of a Doubt, CGC, A-CD, NA, NAJ, TSW, TD

Shadows TD Tracking Glove

Today, October 2, 2010

Shadow took his certification test for Tracking and passed! Yippee! He was ready a year ago - I wasn't...

 


September 17, 2010
Emma finished up her AKC CD!
First leg (do I have to tell her score?)
Second leg was a 197 and 1st place
Third leg was a less than stellar 184 and a 3rd place. I don't normally try to make excuses but there must have been something in the ring overnight because all of the dogs were sniffing wildly.

Emma's new name is ARCH Emma Ewe Found Me, CGC, RL3, TSW, A-CD, CD

Beau got his UD!Congratulations Beau!

 


March 13, 2010
Miss Emma now has an extra CD leg with a 195 and 2nd place! (even with a 3 point deduction for a "no sit")!



2009

December 13, 2009
Beau got his 2nd UD leg with a 186-1/2 and a first place! Not as great as the 195 he got on his first leg, but most certainly better than a 170!

Emma finished up her CD today with a 193 and a first place. Had she not given me 2 no sits, she would have had a 199! Also not as great as the 198 she NQd on yesterday, but as before, better than a 170!

Beau 2nd and UD LegEmma 3rd CD LEg



Rally trial at PMDT October 31 and Nov 1, 2009
Emma had some really nice runs this week at my rally trial.
I am exhausted, however, she is still raring to go!

10/31/09 Level 1B, 209, 5th place

Pam and Emma at ASA July 11, 2009
Miss Emma is now a 2-legged dog! She debuted in competition obedience this weekend in Novice. Her scores weren't stellar - a 193 and a 192 (although I was clearly robbed because she was fantastic and deserved a 197) but did get a 4th place.

One more leg to go!

ASCA trial (competition obedience)

Mr. Beau got his first utility leg today with a 195 and a 1st place!!! I was quite proud – he handled himself like a pro and really thought about each exercise. I loved watching him really work through the scent articles! The points off were just for some crooked sits – no big deal! Only 2 more legs to go to finish up his UD!!!



2008

October 18, 2008

I wasn’t all that thrilled today – scores a little down from last week and crappy placements, BUT we did have 12 runs again, 11 Q’s, 1 NQ again because Emma didn’t stay on the recall, and 7 placements. Okay, I guess it wasn’t that shabby

We are all very exhausted and I won’t do that again – trial 2 weekends in a row with the dogs in 4 times each – too stressful and I did see a bit of burnout with Beau. Emma and Shadow were still raring to go!

Rally O' Trial at Y2K9's in Wyndmoor, PA Sunday, December 7, 2003 Shadow, finished up his Rally 1 title with a Magna Cum Laude and a score of 191. The best part of his run was that I didn't need to have anyone "protect" us from the crowd because Shadow and I were feeling very confident!

December 5, 2003 We had an interesting experience. I was grooming dogs in the basement and had locked the dogs in the bedroom. Once I was done grooming, I stayed downstairs to clean up and Lynn took her dogs upstairs to take them out to her car. I come upstairs and low and behold, all 3 of my boys are in the kitchen! I put them outside in the back yard. Lynn came back in the house and I asked her if my dogs were out of the bedroom when she came up. They were! I asked her if Shadow did anything and she said she wasn't sure which border collie was Shadow but in any case, none of the dogs approached her!!!!!!

September 20, 2003 Pam's Border Collie Shadow acted like a completely normal dog when 10 guests came to visit. This was his very first time "out and about" when I had company over!

October 4, 2003 Pam's Border Collie Shadow went to his first ever match show where he did every exercise - INCLUDING THE STAND FOR EXAM! HE WAS BRILLIANT! And we were both calm!

On June 14, 2003 Shadow got wicketed (measured) at an agility trial!!! After a week and a half of desensitizing him to being on the table with familiar and new people measuring him, he handled it like a pro. I was a basket case as the judge (even though I told her that Shadow is afraid of people) PET HIM ON THE HEAD AND LOWERED HER FACE TO HIS! Shadow on the other hand was completely and utterly calm!

We ran in JWW (Jumpers with weaves) in ankle deep mud and while we did not qualify for our agility run (handler error again...) he was super dooper and as always, did exactly what I told him to do. One of these years I'll get my handling skills to work...<grin>

Shadow went from being a very aggressive (rescued) dog to an almost normal dog in 16 months! Earned his CGC Title!!!

Shadow was in a Rally-O match on March 23, 2002! I was a nervious wreck but he was GREAT!

Took him to his first ever trial on April 20, 2002 and he was great. We entered in Rally and while he didn't place he was amazingly calm and did quite well!

April 5, 2003 APDT Rally-O in Wyndmoor, PA First Trial My Border Collies, Beau and SHADOW(!) tied for 1st place and SHADOW WON THE RUN-OFFand was first place over 70 other dogs.

Second Trial got a score of 197 and won third place

April 5, 2003 APDT Rally-O in Wyndmoor, PA First Trial Cody got a 193 and Molly got a 172. Second Trial he got a score of 190 (which was a huge gift from the judge - he was too).
