Congrats to Alphonse! He completed his first two legs of rally obedience this weekend. In his first run he scored 87 out of 100 and placed 5th out of 22. In his second run - scored 91 and placed 4th out of 18.

Congrats Oliver :) & Mom :)

Well, it's official. Oliver has his RE! We went for our first leg of RAE last weekend and came away with an 89 and 93. Two of his best rounds to date. I'm pretty darn pleased. Video of the Advanced round is on his Facebook page...look for "Oliver Wood With a Twist").

Hello CorGeek :)

It was nice to meet you and Oliver.  I was wondering if the AKC website shows your points yet.  Sonny's points for Obedience are listed, but not his Rally yet.

Yes :-) ... I don't have to be there at 8:30, but I will anyway so I can meet you and watch Oliver :-)

The course changes somewhat at each level. They start with Excellent, because that has the most stations, and all they have to do from there is remove and/or swap out a station or two. Each level has its own walkthrough, So it will go this way. Excellent walkthrough, Excellent B competes, Excellent A competes. Then Advanced walkthrough. Advanced B competes, Advaneced A competes. Then the Novice walkthrough., etc. 

Make sense?

Oh, Wait......ALL walk throughs happen first and then ALL competitions?

Comment by carolyn matassa on October 24, 2013 at 10:36am

What is "E" ?

If I'm reading your post correctly, Each walk through is BEFORE the event. In other words, NOVICE walk through is LAST, right before Novice event?

Personally, I've found that Oliver needs at least a half hour of my attention to settle down. Less than take, he's nutters. E starts at 8:30 with (I'm guessing) a 15 minute walk-through. 4 dogs at about 2.5 minutes each. Another 15 minute walk-through for Advanced and another 4 dogs. Then the Novice walk-through. My best guess is that will start about 9:20. (It might be sooner or later, but they're hoping to start Obedience in the same ring at 10, so...
Remember to give yourself sign in time, too. It doesn't take long, but it does take time. 

I'm going to try to be there about 7:45.

I don't know about a prong collar...I've never personally seen a dog in one at a trial. (Probably because you can't compete in one.)

How early do I need to get there tomorrow morning?

Will anyone there say anything if I bring him in on a prong collar?  So he doesn't try to play with every corgi he meets?  ... I know he can't compete with it on (I only use it when I'm training him...he knows when it's on and does not pull)
