Rally went so much better today. I made sure to arrive closer to our class time, and left Becca in the car when I got there. I brought her in about 45 minutes before the we went in the ring. She seemed more at ease today, but still unfocused. We played the name game, every time she looked at me she got a smidge of string cheese. Both strategies worked. We scored a 90 and first place!

Becca and I both survived our first rally trial. We just barely qualified with a 73. She was much more interested in the floor than me.I lost many points for tight leash and luring.
