24.9.2006 Prosecco (Italy)
Our first competition ever - both for Grin and for me!
We did very good. In agility we gained 15 points because of going around an obstacle and having to repeat the slalom 2 times - my fault, naturally :) In jumping Grin had problems with slalom again, but we'd have been disqualified anyway for leaving out an obstacle (again) - still my fault. I suppose we'll do better when we gain more experience. But for our first time it was great!
Movies of our run:
Double clean run!!! Since we went test dog again, we didn't qualify, but had we competed officially, we'd been placed second... almost a veni vidi vici situation.
I like to think it wasn't just begginner's luck, but we'll prove that on the following competitions.

Double clean run again, and since this time we were competing, we won! We were 1st in the A1/J1 category and have obtained our first qualification for A2.

Relaxing after a job done good :)

It wasn't really my or Grin's day. I wasn't focused (at all) while running the courses and neither was Grin, which resulted in three disqualifications (agility 1, jumping open and agility open) - though the disqs were all my fault, Grin's carelessness "only" brought penalty points. Better luck next time :)
The agility run was a disaster, Grin was completely unfocused again, which led into disqualification (not my fault this time - ok, so it's always the handler's fault, but Grin was quite confused, too). Jumping was better, he actually ran the obstacles and didn't behave like we were going for a walk. We got 5 penalty points for missing the slalom the first time.
