Lucia and I went to an agility trial in Amherst, NY this weekend. I couldn't have asked for a better weekend. 15 runs over 3 days with 15 Q's to match :rolleyes:

 

The best part of the weekend.....we were the ONLY team with 15 Q's and Lucia won a cool stuffed toy for her effort :D

Thanks!

 

 

I forgot to mention, we run NADAC novice. Not for long though. We are only a few Q's away from being open in everything. We earned our S-reg-N today, too!

Thanks everyone! I'm still on a high from it :rolleyes: My biggest goal of the weekend was to get the 25 pts we needed for our reg-S title, so this was pretty cool. We have both come a long way this winter and I'm looking forward the summer trial season.

Way to go! Now, head on over to the NADAC website and look up the proper form of those titles you're starting to stack up. Best to get the terminology sorted out now, before it all gets away from you.

 

And an inspirational quote heard this week from Sharon Nelson: "Novice tests the dog, but open starts to test the handler." Forewarned is forearmed :rolleyes:

I'm very bored with novice and can't wait to get to open. I walk the open and elite courses, just because, and know that Lucia and I can handle them. We train on USDAA and AKC advanced courses and do pretty well. When we run the chances classes I handle from the open line, not the novice, because, IMO, they are not a challenge.

 

As for terminology, not a strong point. Doesn't really matter becasue Lucia doesn't know what a title is :rolleyes:

Sounds like you had a really great time

 

- just to be a bit dumb, I know q's are great - but what are they exactly??

We dont have that over here, you either

Eliminated - for off course and stuff

5 faults for every mistake

Clear round - going clear in the course time

and places for the fastest dogs with the least faults

 

Where does q's fit in with all tha?? :rolleyes:

Q's mean Qualifying round. On most NADAC runs, if you Q, you get 10 points towards a title in that class. Accumulate enough points and the dog earns a title, earn enough titles and the dogs earn all around titles like a NATCH.

 

To get a Q the round must be clean and under time. In Regular/skilled, you can knock one bar and still get a 5 point Q. The other classes must all be clean because each mistake is a 10 or 20 point fault.

 

Angel: Way to go! It sounds like a great weekend :rolleyes:
