    Awesome job you two! Flyer has such focus 2good, you've done a great job training him!
    Loved the video!
    Your Open is a bit different than ours here in Canada...no command discrimination. We can do position changes and a 3 minute in sight stay in place of the out of sight stays or we can do the out of sight stays...the choice is ours but no command discrimination. More challenging your way for sure!

    and why we need lots of training before we can think of entering open...............

    ugh. Saturday did not go well. It was late afternoon before the 10 Open A entries got started. It was a one ring trial and about 2:30 when I was all warmed up and ready. Then right before my turn we had to wait for HIT Preferred and High Combined preferred, and High Combined Regular ribbon presentations. It wouldn't have been so bad, if they hadn't had to search high and low for the HC winner, who then had to go get her dog, etc... grrr,, but don't mind me, I'm just in a mood...

    Monkey boy did okay considering it was a new building for both of us, he wasn't too swivel headed but I did make him miss a halt on the heeling. :( That made him mad and he nipped at my knee... we lost 6 pts. on heeling.

    Then we quickly NQ on command discrimination with the "stand your dog" and he continues to sit... hello Flyer, yes, that was me talking to you! Stand your silly @@@! Of course he did, but our hopes of a title disappeared. He tried to auto finish on the retrieves so I stopped him and received many points off. The front on the broad jump was a little off, but he did it.

    10 were entered, 2 dogs survived Open A. :(

    We will try again, entering two trials in March, maybe more - if needed. :D

    Look at Tulsa coming up on the calendar! I'm bummed that I couldn't go. :( Justus in Masters would have been a hoot! Flyer, well ... we are going to try to qualify for Excellent in the 2020 trial. :)

    Have a couple weekends till we try that Open A thing again...
