Munich Cup 2010

After taking part in pre-novice class last year, we tried to compete in novice at Munich Cup 2010.
It was a great weekend , meeting a lot of happy & friendly people, gathering together to pursue their hobby – work & have fun with the dogs.

Task 1: Mark Bettinson.
Marking (40m) uphill with changing terrain
Lou oriented on the shot coming from the right, so she missed the mark.
Although I never handled her before, she believed me several times, but in the end she missed the dummy by 5 meters.
0 points
– but a really happy me – Lou did a great job!!

Task 2 : Roger Tozer... Weiterlesen

We had a turbulent and unforgettable weekend!

Lou won open class at the  specialty Aichach under judge Mr.  Fred Hayton (GB) and thrilled us by becoming
best bitch , BOB and if that wasn’t enough  Best in Show!!!

At our (both!) first workingtest novice we had 20-0-0-0-20-20 points , so we could’nt pass.
But Lou did her very best and made me really proud, showing such nice work.

Special thanks go to all our friends keeping their fingers crossed for us, we will NEVER forget this unbelievable day!
Lou also passed her eye examination – we are happy!
Thanks to  Petra for the  pictures!
