This past weekend, my cousins and I entered in a dog fun match to practice with our dogs for our 4-H clubs. Four of the six sled dogs were entered, Cinnamon, Rocket, Chipmunk and Dingo. My cousin that showed Cinnamon entered in 2 classes; Obedience and Agility. She did not place but overall we seen improvement in the dog and her. My other cousin that owns Rocket showed him. She entered him in 5 classes; Pre-Novice on leash trainer with experience with dog having no experience, Agility, Costume Class, Mixed Breed Male Conformation, and Showmanship. In these 5 classes she placed in 4. Pre-novice was 2nd place, Costume class everyone took a blue but her costume theme was Peter Pan and Wendy. You can figure out who was who... it was very creative. Conformation was a 2nd out of 3, and showmanship was a 4th out of like 10. I was very pround of her and Rocket.
Now, on to Chipmunk and Dingo.
With Chipmunk, Dingo and I all together we entered 6 classes. Dingo had 2 classes for the day and Chipmunk was 4. Dingo was entered in Pre-Novice on leash, and Mixed Breed female conformation. She took 2nd out of 2 in conformation and didn't place in pre-novice. For Chipmunk, she was entered in Youth Novice, Agility, Rally, and Showmanship. She didn't place in Youth Novice and we didn't compete in the rally because it was another 1 1/2 hrs until we would of went and that was to long for them to wait. In Agility she took 3rd place out of 8 and in Showmanship her and I took 3rd out of 3.
Overall, the day was very excellent and I plan on adding pictures once we get them uploaded to the computer. I am proud of all the sled dogs, and hope each one
