Greyhound Specialty and Rally




This past weekend was the Greyhound Club of Northern California specialty. It is in conjunction with an all breed show so all performance venues(obedience and rally) are with all the other breeds. Bryn went Winners Bitch for her second major and 3 more points. She was the only Aragon dog to win anything in conformation that day. Lyric and Echo went unplaced but had a good time. The next day however Lyric won the breed.



The highlight of the show was Echo's performance in Rally Advance. This was her first time in the class and the first time off leash in competition. She not only worked with me the whole time but held her attention as well. She won the class over Border collies, goldens and other "typical" obedience breeds. It certainly was unexpected.



The next day she was in again but it was tight squeeze to run from the conformation ring to the Rally ring. As I ran up to the Rally ring they were calling for us and consequently we had no time to warm up. Once again she performed beyond what I could have hoped for. Half way through the video notice the rain. She stayed with me and worked the entire time. Once again she won the class with a perfect score of 100. Way to go Echo-I think the distractable puppy is finally growing up!!

That's so brilliant! Echo's focus and work was amazing! I'll bet it's a great feeling to beat the more traditional obedience breeds too;) Congratulations to you both!
