This is actually very nice, everything except the weave poles (I feel like I have said that so many times). Happy connected dog on the start line; the handler (oh, that’s me) does a good job of calling obstacles well enough in advance for the information to be of use; no off courses; I even turned the right way when Chico needed to try the poles again (turning toward the poles tells Chico to stay in and weave back the other way – then, Julie says, he thinks he’s done). Should I have gone back and made him do all the weaves? I don’t think so. He pulled out after 10, but he was also up to speed by then, and the speed we can have at Julie’s is what I am looking for in the moment.
