This weekend Smudge and I competed in the AAC (Agility Association of Canada) Alberta and NWT regionals. There were 105 dogs from all across the province competing for a chance to represent our province in the nationals that go in August in Montreal.
In order to qualify for Nationals the dog and handler team had to get a combined total score from the 6 courses (2 gamblers, 2 jumpers and 2 standard rounds, 1 each day) of 300 points.
Well needless to say Smudgers and I put in a valiant effort but came up just a tad short of the 300 points. At the end of the trail we were sitting in 18th place out of 30 dogs in the 22" height class with a total points value of 284.
I would have liked to qualify for nationals but honestly it doesn't matter either way. Smudge and I had a great weekend alone together (left Tama and Winter at home) and together we had some of our best rounds ever since we first started competing in agility.
Just thought I would share that little piece of news.
