Now that Beginner Novice is out of the way we will enter Graduate Novice.
On Saturday Phlox earned his Rally Advance title with a score of 99 and first place. He was a little distracted but kept his focus and took the jump very nicely.

Today we worked right out side of a dog park. I've made it my goal to try to work around as many dog parks as possible before nationals. It kind of simulates the hustle and bustle of a dog show and we need that.
Here are a couple of short videos. I'm really trying to film myself more often because every time I do I see something that I could be doing better. If you aren't in the habit of videoing your training sessions start!
I couldn't resist a few pictures as well

Big thank you to my friend over at 2 Dogs, One Camera for the pictures!

With Phlox's first obedience trial coming up on Friday I am getting nervous. I always get nervous its not something I have ever had control over.
Phlox has been doing very well with his training. He still gets distracted every now and then but even on a bad day he has moments of brilliants.
Even though I can't control my nerves I can control what comes out of the experience.
I will be the one in the ring smiling and learning from my mistakes.
Train to win. Trial to learn.

It was a good weekend and Phlox won Winnners Dog and his very first point! He also got Reserve the next day. I don't have any pictures from the show yet but here is one of the ribbons he brought back.
It's hard to believe just how tiny he use to be.

My sister is handling him for me in the breed ring. She often laments the fact that I have "broken" him. "he wont stop looking at me" "He wont watch the treat" "He wont run out front" "He's pacing not gating" and on it goes.
Here is is in class Tuesday night Strutting his stuff while my sister tries to "fix" him.
