Last time I formally goal set on this blog was way back in January.
Obviously I had goals for Regionals and Nationals I think I alluded to them – very pleased we accomplished them (and more!). Now it’s time to look forward again.
2010 goals …
Brody – get that last elusive jumpers Q; finish level 3 CPE titles; work on distance a little (for fun like); run happy and quick; and perhaps attend Regionals
Considering we had exactly 1 AAC trial between then and now I’m delighted Brody earned the jumpers q – I think all he needs in level 3 CPE is two jackpots – just because we have hardly seen them … he’s puttering away in level 4 very happily as well. His placements at Regionals (both in individual classes and overall) surpassed any goal I would have set. His work at Nationals and overall placement was way beyond my goal setting but lovely. He is running happily and quickly and just such a pleasure to play with.
Thea – work on getting 200 more level 1 CPE points; get another starters AAC Q (snookers most likely given she doesn’t weave, do the teeter or like chutes); get another advanced jumpers Q
if Brody doesn’t attend Regionals ~ attend them
Thea has done NO AAC and very very little agility. She has earned every q but one she was entered in which considering she usually just does agility at trials and house league blows my mind. She is so much fun!
Sally – earn a starters snookers Q (or 2!), fix the %^&$ aframe contact; earn another 2 advanced jumpers Qs; run advanced gamblers; earn level 1 CPE standard title; finish level 2 games titles (if I can find enough classes); run steeplechase and standard once aframe is working
Regionals? maybe .. need to give this some serious thought .. but I would like to have a dog there …
Snookers q? done. Aframe – life long project I think but coming. No missed contacts at Nationals and One standard Q in CPE make me feel better about this one. She has jackpot classes left in level 2 (haven’t been able to find them to enter) and is otherwise in level three( if I have done my math right)
Steeplechase is not an immediate goal of mine at this point. Regionals was amazing and Nationals was wonderful. She is an exceptional dog.
Sampson – continue to backyard train him .yup. introduce 2×2 weaves and contacts, nope challenge him with short sequences this, this is too much fun! Loving fooling around with this silly, nose driven fellow!
Me – participate in Regionals; continue having fun in this game I love; trust I will know when Brody wants to retire; tighten up my technical skills handling the variety of dogs I run; get the agility field up and operational; host something at the agility field; represent myself, my dogs and AAC well wherever I am playing
Fun? check..Trust myself with regards to Brody? check.. improve my skills? need coaching for this one… agility field? bust…represent well? I hope so…
