Ronin Wins Second UDX Leg in Cheyenne!

Cheyenne Kennel Club Obedience Trials, Cheyenne, Wyoming.
Whew! That was a tough one getting to, that second UDX leg. Yesterday Ronin went over the wrong jump on the second jump (NQ in Utility B) and went down during a sit-stay (NQ in Open B).

Today, on the advice of our coach, instructor, mentor, and trainer Dr. Gail Clark we worked on being calmer. Also, since it was getting warm, I gave Ronin a splash of cold water on his belly to keep him comfortable and alert just before we went in for the stays.  Ronin took Third Place in Utility B, so we were halfway there until Open B started at 11:00. We practiced drop on recall a bit and tried to remember that a sit-stay lasts a really long time, Jon. We did fairly well in Open B and got a Q. Yay! Oh, and a truck went by during out-of-site stays in Open B and I guess Ronin gave it a "Bark!" of warning, so that was a point off. But he did it! That meant Ronin earned his second UDX leg.  I owe Gail a steak dinner.
