I usually don’t begin competing in agility with my dogs before they’re two, but a NADAC trainer and judge, Sunny Williams, decided to have some evening mini-trials in August 2011 and I thought they’d be great show experience for Lively, even though she was only 21 months old. The first one consisted of two TouchNGo classes. Lively blew a discrimination on the first one (very common in new dogs) but nailed the second class and got her first Q. She even beat Chaos & Berakah, who missed discriminations in both classes. The second mini-trial consisted of two Tunnelers classes, and all three of my dogs Q’d both times – we came home with 6 Q’s for the evening. Lively decided she, like Berakah, liked competing, so I entered her in the Labor Day trial in Gillette. I had to work one of the four days but we went the other three. Lively had 5 Q’s out of 6 classes the first day, leaving me with my mouth open in astonishment. She had 3 Q’s out of 6 classes the second day, and 3 Q’s out of 4 classes on the last day. When the dust cleared, she had achieved her Novice Regular & Tunnelers classes plus a leg each towards her Outstanding titles, as well as a Chances Q, two Jumpers Q’s, and two TouchNGo Q’s, an amazing haul for a beginner dog.
Lively began trialing in Nose Work in 2014. She has her PT1, PT2, Novice Exterior1 and Novice Exterior 2 (Advanced) titles.
