Dash finished his Rally Excellent title

AKC Rally Finish Right Halt

Dash finished his Rally Excellent (obedience) title today at the Badger Kennel Club show in Deforest, WI. Dash’s performance would have earned 100/100… but I lost us 5 points for asking Dash to sit twice during a station whose sequence only called for one sit. Oops!

The judge could have taken off 10 points, but only took 5 because–as he put it–the extra sit actually increased the difficulty level of the station. Our 95/100 was still good for a 2nd place out of seven. This is Dash’s 24th title now in just under 3 years of quite infrequent competition. Yay, Dashy!
