The nice thing about competing with Scorch for the 10th time is that things are starting to come together. I wouldn't call him "seasoned" yet, but today was the first time I really felt like we walked into the show site and he knew exactly what he was there to do. And we went in and he did it. He was pretty much perfection today. I couldn't have asked for more.
This was definitely a smaller trial than what we're used to. But the audience ringside is growing when it's our turn to show. Scorch knows how to draw a crowd. We earned High in Rally Trial (I didn't even know that was a thing!) and won a pretty dog bowl. I just need to work on his loose leash walking in the venue... it's atrocious. Other than that, he's calmed tremendously and isn't as revved up when we go in now, which is a relief.
Welcome to your Rally Advanced title, Scorch. We did it, together.
