Polly has running contacts!

I was very happy with Apollo's running contacts this weekend! There's some more work to do because he's leaping a bit from the end of the dogwalk and he's not as far down into the yellow as I would like on the a-frame. But overall he did very well and I'm sure if I keep up the practice he'll only get better. He didn't Q on Saturday due to a bar in each course but he got a QQ on Sunday.

If I ever got another boxer there is no doubt that I would do running contacts with him from the beginning (hint, hint Kay).

Icon also had a good weekend, going 4/4. I was very happy with his JWW run on Sunday. He didn't even look a the tunnel after the triple (which many dogs took) and really read my deceleration on the turn to the weaves. Most dogs overshot the weaves and had to come back in to them.

And here is my run with Killy. I ran her in JWW on Sat and Sun. I don't have the Saturday run on tape, but it was a very amusing disaster :). I thought we did pretty well on Sunday (aside from taking that aforementioned off-course tunnel after the triple).
