Huraaa, huraaa, huraaaa!!! It´s a shame, that I didn´t check it some weeks before, then Bailey could get the title already this year, but it happened, and we have to wait till September 2015! :-)

For the title of Club champion of BCCCZ we had to collect 100 points from the shows and exams – in our case the rate is 31:70 (31 points from the shows - 1x r.CAC, 1x Ex2, 4x Ex3, 1x Ex4, 70 points from exams - ZZO, ZOP, BH, ZPU-1, LA1, LA2, FPr1, FPr2, OB-Z, FPr3, STPr1).

.: Intensive agility training with Petra Haspeklová :.
Amigo
I have trained with Petra for first time, but it was just great. Training was focused on the speed/drive in the course and we also tried the situations, that the dogs were working in the very hight speed, but also in this case they had to keep their emotions controlled. And the second thing we worked on, focus on the obstacles = reducing of too much eye contact with handler. Amigo “run” during the morning, Dazzi in the afternoon :-).

Little bit different competition again, because we (as Turnov agility club) organized it. Some of our runs were better, some of them not... but it´s important, that there was a good mood all the time. On Saturday I wasn´t concentrated too well, on Sunday it was already better. On Sunday I finished jumping with Amigo on 12th place and agility looked to be so good, till we did a beam. Amigo run on the beam from the not nice angle, were balancing all the time. I expected he will fall down, so I was waiting for him... hmmm, he didn´t... and we disqualified on the next obstacle, mmmm, it´s soooo pity. During this accident Amigo´s paw was injured, so now he needs to get some days off.

I love the nonplanned actions... when I go somewhere, because I´m in the mood to go there. And this time I went to Huntířov for agility competition, where Mr Grygar was a judge. I went there to compete only with Amigo, but also Dazzi and Klára with Doors went there with us. Our results werent too nice. In jumping Amigo started before I asked him to run and enjoyed this run really a lot :-D. In the exam of LA2 we run nice, till “out”...I don´t know, why I have so big problem with “outs” in my head, vrrr. The rest of this course would be a clean run...hmmm. Course of agility was a big challenge for us, but I decided to enjoy it. But juhuuu, we finished it on the 10th place/29! There was a chance to pay one extra run, so ok, I paid it, why not, Amigo is in good condition... but I missed the coursewalking??!! :-D Why not...

This competition was my first experience with the judge of Jaroslava Podmolová. It´s a shame, that the weather was just HORRIBLE, it was raining a lot and time to time even more than a lot. Thanks to the judge, that she thought in her courses, that the weather is not nice, so not too much turning etc. This time I run with Amigo and Bailey... this time both of them pleased me. This year Bailey had only 4 agility trainings, and even in this case she did pretty well... only in the exam of LA2 we didn´t understand together, in the other runs Bailey run really well! :-)

I so much like Hamrníky and the nature around, that is why I spent there a week of agility with Mr Grygar even this year. I think Amigo likes to be there as much as I do, because it was just great to train with him! :-) Dazzi had his own lessons – we worked on he starts and with the motivation games we worked on his focus, drive and speed. Bailey was enjoying the walks many times a day, playing and we worked on the correct position on the objects, what we need for STPr. The week was just great and we can start to look forward to another agility camp which should be in February :-).

Hahaaa, I just love this agility competition! Bailey was just after the heat, so she stayed at home, and I competed only with Amigo + Dazzi was there with us. As usually, some runs were better some of them worse. Even this year we qualified into the night finale of individuals and this time also in the finale of teams :-). The most fun we had in the run which was in the fancy-dresses. Bára got an idea, that our fancy-dresses will be on the topic of our dogs :-D. What I also like on this competition, Charlie´s run... this time I run with Eva´s Issis and Amigo run even with 2 “aunts”, Jana and Bára :-). If it is possible, I would like to go there next year again!! :-)

Mmmm, the mood there was great, nope my condition – I was unable to concentrate, keep the courses in my mind, run faster... uf uf... soo, 3x dis :-/.

Already long time I was thinking about the exams of StPr1-3, when the dog has to find some objects in the area. Bailey really likes finding of some things/toys, it looked to be ok in the training, I only didn´t understand too well some things in the rules, but I decided to try it and get some experinces. Mmm, my feelings after the exam weren´t too nice, but we passed the exam of StPr1. And what is good, the judge made some things clear to me, so we can continue in the training :-).

Huraaay agility action with Katka Lerlová as a judge. Originally I planned some weeks off, but we will rest some other time :-). The courses were really fast and interesting, because they had some other ideas as I know. I finished only the first run, when we were with Amigo on the 2nd place. In the other runs I already wasn´t concentrated too well and I had a problem with the orientation in the space. Now we really take some weeks off to enjoy the summer :-).

AMIGO DEFINITIVE CHOICE – Ex2, r. CAC

For this year I planned only two dog shows, Klatovy and Mladá Boleslav, just to try to finish the title of Czech champion with Amigo. The conditions for this title we finished already in Klatovy, so I wasn´t too happy to go to Mladá Boleslav, just with the reason, that I was afraid to get VG at the end of Amigo´s show path. Mmm, r.CAC is not too bad, so bye bye, we have just stopped with shows for some time, since now we will be active only in sport :-).

Just a “small” statistic – Mr Amigo was showed for 30times. He was out of the “first” 4 places only for 6 times and on the contrary he received Excellent 1 for 10 times! We were in the international dog show for 14 times, national dog show for 6 times, club show for 7 times, special dog show for 2 times and regional dog show for 1 time. Together Amigo received 4x VG, 2x Excellent, 2x Excellent 4, 5x Excellent 3, 7x Excellent 2, 10x Excellent 1. And we received the titles of 2x CAJC, 6x CAC, 5x r. CAC, 1x CAC ČMKU, 1x Winner of the class, 1x Regional winner, 1x National winner, 1x Winner of the special dog show and 2x BOB!!

AMIGO DEFINITIVE CHOICE - V1, CAC, National winner, CAC ČMKU, BOB

Hmm, what to say about this show – after the 4hours of sleeping and 2,5hours of driving I really wished to get CAC. The judge was really strict, and gave no title in the class of young males and open class, that is why I was really nervous to go into the show ring with Amigo. But yes yes yes, it happened well, Mr. Amigo received Excellent 1, CAC, so he also finished the conditions for the title of CZECH CHAMPION! And when we won BOB above the females from the young and winner class, you can´t imagine, how much I was happy!!! :-) Many thanks to the judge, that he was strict, but sooo friendly... he also was that judge, who gave CAC to Amigo those 2 years ago, that we finished the title of Czech junior champion, and now Czech champion :-). Many thanks also to Jolana for nice pictures and to my darling, that he was there with me! :-) :-*

.: Herding with Dazzi for 1st time :.
Dazzi
A small group from Liberec decided to try herding on the Mr Linhart´s sheeps, in his kennel of Gulden Land, and I decided to go there together with them, because I was soo curious, if Dazzi has some herding instincts or not. He saw the sheeps for very first time, so he didn´t know too well what to do, but what is important, he was interested in them... so, who knows, maybe we will try herding again...

With Bailey and Amigo we had an agility training there… many thanks to Pavla for her agility tips! Thank her also for the pictures she made during that time…

In last weeks we didn´t train too much… so it´s time to start with systematic trainigs again! Sunday afternoon we spent on the training with Antonín Grygar in Beroun, which was focused on handling. On Monday I was on the first training with Bára Samková, this time with Dazzi and Amigo. The topic for Amigo was clear – fast and perfect done contact zones + turning on the obstacles, because it´s the highest time say good bye to Amigo´s “flying days”. For Dazzi it was his first agility lesson… we got the tips how to start with training of turning and the contact zones… and how to learn Dazzi to run ahead, don´t be fixed on my movement too much. Tuesday afternoon we spent in Turnov agility klub, this time Amigo stayed at home, and Dazzi and Bailey were training. Bailey did sequences for her “fun”, just to push her tu run, and not only think about jumping. In the meantime I did tunnels with Dazzi and also some obedience to he was focused on me also when other dogs are running around. And what we did on Wednesday? We enjoyed the afternoon in the wood, just with the looong walk… because I really feel to be tired after those 3 days :-D.

The judges there were Jiřina Máčková, Mirja Lapanja and André Mauer. Mmmm, my runs with Amigo weren´t too nice – we finished only two courses – agility of A1 and agility of teams. Some runs we did well, some of them not… but we all the time were fighting with the bars and contact zones.

Fortunatelly the weather was muuuch better than the weather forecast for this week and we enjoyed this weekend in the sun, good mood, with interesting courses made by the judge of Mr. Antonín Grygar. From my side it wasn´t too clever to compete with Bailey and Amigo, because my course walks weren´t too effective, I all the time checked, if something isn´t wrong with the obstacles, if the tunnels are fixed well, if the bars are in the correct high for every categhory, etc. … so I really had a problem to keep the course to be able run it! :-D Some runs we did partially well, some of them not… but what I was happy, that Bailey got 4th place (from 32 dogs!!) in the Sunday agility :-).
