We're at the Nottingham Dog Agility Show today which is being held at the Newark Showground for the first time after flirting for a few years with a local farm as its venue.
The main reason for being here is the Crufts Team Qualifier and our club have an impressive six teams running across the three height categories. I am responsible for the four in the large size category which keeps me busy for most of the day.
Either side of that MD has two individual runs, he misses a contact in his first run probably because I rushed him a touch. In his last run, he gets a clear round and a rosette for 7th.
As for his team run, he runs in Team 2 which the manager (myself) promotes him to when another dog pulls out. He vindicates the decision with a great clear round, unfortunately the rest of the team and the other teams all have faults so we don’t get anywhere in the competition overall.
Our lucky charm, L, watches the two clears but had disappeared into Newark for his first run when he got faults.
