Riley and I did it! We have graduated all our agility classes; beginners, intermediate 1 and intermediate 2!!! We are now in Novice Competition! We will continue to go to weekly classes to continue learning (we still have A LOT to learn!), learn how to strategize our runs, practice different techniques and just have FUN! :)
This past Thursday was our final class, and we did a regulation course, Riley did awesome! I was super nervous because the previous week his focus was ZERO. But this time he was all ears and eager :)
We ran the first half of the course awesome, a couple mistakes but I was super happy. I could just see the joy in his face while we did the pause on the table, he was just so happy and my heart was just bursting :) We continued to the tunnel after a 5 count and then I had a brain fart LOL :) I lost track of where I was suppose to go haha but Riley didn't care :) I figured it out and then we finished our run!
Our instructors met the next day to decide who was ready to move on to Novice competition classes, and Riley and I were among the ones picked! :)
YAY RILEY!!! WE DID IT!!!
