Crestview Lodge Performance this Saturday

Hi, gang,

  Just a reminder that our Due South performance for Crestview Lodge is set to kick off this Saturday
at 11:00 a.m.
  We will meet at the Lodge in Pincher Creek at 10:30 for set-up.  Trevor and Laurie will pick up equipment at Shadowbar at 10:00 a.m.
  
 After the performance we are invited to Louann and Mike's place and if we wish to bring swim suits, we can relax in their brandie new hot tub!!!  

 I have emailed our program and course designs to each of you.  Should be loads of fun for us and the residents.

 By the by, our Due South Scent Hurdle Team with new members, Laura and Max and Sylvia and Julie tied for first place at the Lethbridge Dog Show in Coaldale.  Jagged and Drummer filled out the team.   Kudos to the Lethbridge Club for providing the perfect venue for obedience, rally obedience, and scent hurdle racing.  Thanks to all team members from Calgary and Lethbridge for staying to play and to work at timing and box loading and box judging as well as set-up and clean-up.  They were amazing.  To Sarah Jane, thank you, thank you for judging.  What fun!!!
 
 To Jack, thank you for videoing our wonderful team....

Worth the Trip

On Sunday morning at 3:30 or so, our faithful APDT crew from SE BC left for Sit Happens! in Calgary to trial their dogs in APDT Rally Obedience.  The results from Sylvia and Julie's appearance seems to merit the effort.

Out of a possible 210, their scores were 203, 205, 207, and 208! OMG!  




Sylvia and Julie 



 
Aysha and Kaya, her Bernese Mt. dog had the following scores. 
Trial 1
L1A  186 (NQ over time)
Trial 2
L1A  187
 
Dee and her Labrador retriever, Java received their Level One Title! 

Chantal and Obi gained valuable experience about APDT trialing. 

Denise and Jagged were a superb team as usual:

Trial 1 
L1   207/210
L2  204/210
L3  209/210

Trial 2 
L1  198/210    Handler error........... grrrrrrr.
L2  207/210
