What a weekend! Super proud of Juno’s first try at AAC Regionals. She had some really great runs but unfortunately our abysmal jumpers course yesterday was something we just couldn’t get enough points to overcome. She got spooked and, between taking two off-course tunnels and stopping to gawk at the crowd, we finished with almost no points there. No Nationals for us this year but the rest of her performance makes me optimistic for next year! Loved seeing so many familiar faces representing the Okanagan well – congrats everyone on your qualifying scores and even several podium placements!
Juno Competes in AAC Regionals & Mars Has Success in Barn Hunt
Meanwhile, Mars went with his sire’s owner to have fun at Barn Hunt. Mars earned his Instinct title (RATI) and two Qs toward his Novice title (RATN), including one second place score! He just needs one more novice Q for the title. Pretty amazing for a dog who still hasn’t actually seen a rat or participated in a proper practice/introduction.
