Had a great time at the Breakaway Action Dog (BAD) second trial of the year in Maryland.   The judge, Pat Daggett, came with challenging and fun courses and was lots of fun to work with and be judged by.  The exhibitors were fantastic, having great runs, always ready to help work a class or hauling a sand bag too.  We had a few debuting dogs and people which is always a pleasure to see the new ones starting out.  Special thanks to all who helped make this trial a success and a ton of fun.  Thanks to all BAD members who were there always pitching in from start to finish AND all the wonderful exhibitors who always willing to help out, we can’t run a trial without everyone’s help.  We had a great weekend, great weather and great fun.  Hope to see everyone at our April trial at Westminster, MD.  Premium available on our web site (www.actiondogs.org ) and agility events soon.

 

We had a lot of great runs, over ?? titles earned as well as lots of purple ribbons flying out the door.  Some of the titles earned were:

Peggy & Chip earned their S-TN-N title
Shannon & Susie earned their S-TN-N and O-WV-N titles
Kitty & Marbles earned their S-TN-N title
Chris & Piper 1st Tunnelers Q (baby novice dog)
Karen & Lucy TN-N, first title ever earned.
Ally & Ringer earned their TN-N title

Pam & Lola earned their first ever Weavers Q and their TN-N title
Lori & Sprocket earned their O-WV-O and S-TG-O titles
Karen & Lucy earned their WV-N title
Debra & Elton earned their O-WV-N and O-TG-N titles

Sam & Schatzi doing some “totally flipping” awesome distance handling and q’ing
Cindy & Khaki earned their 1st Q ever in NADAC on their first time out

Catherine & Katydid earned their 1st Versatility NATCH
Sam & Schatzi earned their 6th Versatility NATCH

 As you can see we had lots of Novice people who came out and had a ton of fun and lots of good times.  Plus what was extra great was watching some of these dogs exceed where there had been struggles before.  Looking forward to a great 2013 and watching so many of these teams continue to improve as they have so much fun.  Hope everyone had has much fun as I did.  We did have some chilly weather on Saturday & we did watch the snow fall but it was just a dusting & swept it right away on Sunday morning, so not to bad for February.  See you all in April.
