We went to trials in Syracuse this weekend. I like these trials since you can match in the rings you will show in on Friday and then trial on Saturday and Sunday. For the match time we worked on all of the exercises except scent since I didn't want to make a mistake with my articles right before the trial. Lily did great go outs and nice heeling. She also did the signals in the match rings.

Saturday things were mixed. She missed the 2nd go out and she walked in on the signals, but did the glove and the 2nd article along with a very nice moving stand. Sunday also had mixed results but was generally better than Saturday, including that she stayed out for the signals. Saturday we had some really top notch competitors (like think OTCh and Nationals) who joined us in the NQ pool, so maybe there was a vibe in that ring.

One of my friends who was at the trials (PF's own mashaphan) watched us both days. We were talking after we finished on Saturday and one of the things Martha made note of to me was how "serious" my affect was on Saturday. She is right and I know I am often too serious in the ring. This is a hobby, so it should be fun, right? I made sure that I used a brighter voice and kept a smile on my face on Sunday. I think that helped. So I have to do some attitude adjustment I guess.

I'm sure it would be so easy to be "serious". You traveled a long way for that time in the ring. You are focused and you'd like Lily and Javelin to be focused. I have watched the Crufts videos on YouTube, and those handlers look confident but serious, especially on obedience (although, I'm not sure if they would be considered a hobby?). Having said that, I'm sure your uplifting voice and smiles helped Lily relax on Sunday . Thank you for sharing your weekend!

I think this is where video can be helpful. I know you're already capturing a lot of video, but maybe go back and review what YOU'RE doing vs. Lily.

You'll get there! If you kept trying the same thing, you'd stay in a rut, but you're smart enough to analyze the problems.

Marguerite, yes video does help since you can't watch yourself if you are doing what you should be!
