Well, we had our last night of competition beginner obedience at Peoria Obedience Training Club or POTC for short. It was an 8 week class to prepare for the new AKC class called like Beginner Novice. We had never done long sits and downs before & though it is not in the BN, we practiced for it anyway. All that and the heeling, not including sitting after a few yrs of not sitting because of conformation, was quite intimidating for Party and since I haven’t been in the competition ring for few years, it was for me too.  Anyway the result was a much more relaxed us. LOL. That last night we ran a actual course and had a little graduation party. We were thrilled. We had our first run-off and took 3rd place. Not bad for some lagging, some crooked sits, and a couple no sits. Obviously, more practice is needed before we can enter the ring for that next title. Till later…
