Just returned from CPE agility at K9 Four Seasons Athlete Center in Washingtonville, OH, where Tess earned another Perfect Weekend ribbon. Tess qualified in all eight of her runs on Saturday and Sunday, as well as two qualifying runs on Friday evening that didn't count towards the Perfect Weekend calculation. All of Tess' runs were in the Championship level, which is the highest level of competition in CPE, and all runs must be clean.
Jazz was just one tiny mistake away from a perfect weekend herself! She qualified in seven out of eight runs in Level 4 and Level 5, just one error away from earning her first perfect weekend. Jazz is improving by leaps and bounds (pun intended) with each trial. She finished her Level 4 Strategy Games title and had qualifying scores in all her Level 5 runs. Her only NQ of the weekend was a back-jump in Level 4 Standard, and I think it was because she got excited when she saw the broad jump because we've been working it in our obedience training. Even though she was heading in the wrong direction, she thought she'd show off her broad jump skills ;) Very few judges put the broad jump in their courses, so it's not something Jazz has encountered often in agility and it just appeared at a time when we've been practicting the broad jump exercise in preparation for Open Obedience competition.
All in all, we enjoyed a very successful weekend at CPE agility, as well as a great weekend with friends. We're looking forward to another trial in two weeks at B&D Creekside Activity Center in Latrobe.
