Lively won High Combined at both Trials today (7/23/16) at USDTC. She earned 2 more UDX legs (only need one more to get our title), and earned a few more OTCH points. I am very proud of my girl.

Jake earned his BN and two second place ribbons under Judge Bob Withers. Abby earned two legs in Rally Excellent and Millie earned two legs in Rally Advanced, also under Judge Withers - all at the USDTC trial July 23-24. Thank you to our teachers! 

Tayla and I competed in our first Beginner’s Novice trial on Saturday at the USDTC trial.  Tayla earned a 3rd place in Trial 1 and a 1st place in Trial 2 with a score of 195.5.  On to our title (hopefully) in August.  I’m so proud of how far we have come as a team and have our great Novice Obedience instructor to thank for all her hard work with us.
