    Default First agility match! (brag)

    My little Oliver (19 months old) had his first agility trial on Saturday! It was a CPE match, and he really rocked it.

    We did Standard, Colors, and Wildcard, and Q'd in all three. He also earned blue ribbons in all three!

    I don't have a video of our Standard run (technical difficulties), but here is our Wildcard run, and here is our Colors run.

    The last jump was very close to the edge of the ring and I stopped too early in our Wildcard round, hence the demolishing of the last jump. Overall, the courses were very easy and I could not have asked for Ollie to be more fantastic than he was... no stress behaviors, great start line stays, and nice and focused on course.

    Here we are with our ribbons after the show!

    ETA: We just got some sticky spray for his feet so he won't slip and slide all over the place on this kind of footing in the future. Live and learn!

    I'm so jealous! I'm afraid my little Aussie will be an agility wash-out.

    So much fun to watch those videos. Thanks for posting them.
