Held in Walnut, California (outdoors on grass)
JWW judge Sherry Porter Score 100, Time 37.44 (SCT 37), First place
STD judge Scott Stock Score 95, Time 60.72 (SCT 68), First place
Olive earned her first 100 with her jumpers run. Once again she ran to Diane in the middle of the course, but she came back quickly and still made course time.
We think that Olive expects treats from Diane, so we're going to be careful about that for a while. Once she gets used to running full courses, this will be less of an option.
Her standard course was good but just as she started there was a mess of barking behind us. The first few obstacles were a little slow, but she picked it up and did well after that. There was one bobble after the dog walk, where it looks like she was heading towards the exit for some cookies, but other that the R for the next jump she recovered and finished strong.
I'm really impressed with how well she's doing with so little time to get to know us.
Thanks again! -- John"
