Our club, New England Agility Team, is having their annual USDAA trial this weekend. This is Stewie’s annual USDAA trial. It will be interesting to see how we do! The courses are a lot different from the open and flowing NADAC courses.

Stewie is headed to our club’s annual Winter party this afternoon. Stay tuned for pictures later.
NEAT held its annual Show and Go on October 25th. It was a beautiful, crisp fall day, a little chilly for the first couple of hours. We had a lot of novice and pre novice folks show up and they had some great runs with their dogs and got some good practice in. We also had a puppy/veteran dog run for pups younger than 18 months and some retired agility dogs to have a fun run!
We had beautiful weather and a great practice Wednesday at club practice. We set up a USDAA Masters standard course. It was a great course except for the threadle, I hate threadles. That is probably because I don’t do them very well, I admit it!
Anyway, Stewie did fabulous weaves every time and got the entry every time, hurray! I handled the dogwalk from outside of the weave poles then called him over 12 and then turned and sent him to the poles. It worked great.
This is the course we set up for club practice this week, at least as close as we could get. I am not a good course builder at all! This was a fun challenge to try. Stewie and I didn’t have any trouble with the beginning, and he sent out to 5-7 with no problem. He came in after the dog walk the first try but we got 7-10 the second try. I feel we are getting a bit more consistent and smoother with our distance work.
New England Agility Team (NEAT) trial premium for it’s annual USDAA trial is available at Trial Secretary Services right now! We are having all classes including Grand Prix and Performance National Standard. The site is Wakeda Campground, which is a beautiful site with camping sites available too.
Stewie will be there competing and we hope to see you there too!
This photo is a bit of a blast from the past. It is from All Dog’s Gym in 2007 when we placed in a DAM Team USDAA Qualifier. My teammates were Maureen and Bailey pictured above and also Jake the Border Collie who was camera shy!
Great job Stewie
We also did some great dog walk and A frames. Stewie hasn’t really done any contact training since November, and I was very pleased with his contacts, especially his dogwalk. I sent him to the dog walk, and stayed fall back and he got his contact. I sent him to the dog walk and took off on a diagonal away from him and he waited on his contact. What a good terrier.
