German Shepherd Dog Club of Indiana is having an all-breed rally competition on March 31, 2012.
I would really like to do rally with Violet.
She's solid on most of the behaviors required to compete for a RN title. (Rally Novice, she'd make a crappy nurse. Collie hair all over sterile surfaces.) She needs more public proofing, and we need to work on her heel big time. Eric helped me work with her on heel this morning and she had almost a perfect heel with him! What the heck? I'm a little bit bolstered by this, I'd rather it was me screwing it up, I can fix myself.
But I'd have 3 months, right?
What's the worst that can happen? We don't qualify? At least we tried. I think I'm gonna do it. It'll be her first time in any sort of competition, but if I have my way, far from the last.
Violet says ha, ha, ha, mom. You think I'm gonna heel that well by then? Ha, ha, ha.
