We trialed the weekend of January 12, 2018. Justus entered Preferred Utility with the goal of less barking. We did that. And as a bonus on Saturday, he had no auto-finishes, except on the moving stand where it is appropriate. We took home the Preferred High In Trial with a 192.5. On Sunday, he qualified again but with 3 barks and one auto finish, Mr. 188.5 won his class but no high honors. I am encouraged. We will finish the title, and hopefully improve enough to go back into the regular B classes for OM points. Mr. Flyer... hmmm. He was AWESOME, until those group stays. I'm not sorry they are going away. He survived the long sit, to stand up on the long down. Sigh. Otherwise his Open A debut was great, only losing 3 points on the individual exercises, both days. Sunday was a repeat, except he stood up on the sit-stay and down-stay in groups. 0 for 2 for Flyer. We will try our luck in Preferred Open this coming weekend. No group stays, Yay! If you get a chance to show to the Kincaids, Aimee and Ken are wonderful people whose dedication to the sport is remarkable. I'll be seeking them out again!
