Can an Old Dog Learn New Tricks?

Kari and Gob Compete in Agility

ribbon necklaceI just wanted to share our (Gob and myself’s) weekend adventures with you.

 

This marked the first agility trial for Gob. We have been training for a while now and I finally had the courage to enter him in one. This was a NADAC (North American Dog Agility Council) trial and a much smaller trial than AKC. We were entered in seven courses and Qualified in two!

Gob had a blast running each course…we got side tracked on one or two occasions. Kurt (the Doberman brother) came out to cheer him on and even tried to keep the qualified ribbons for himself.

After three days of being at the trial, Gob is a tired boy and was open to just curling up on the couch and snoozing.

 

Kurt speaks, "I think these are mine...call it a brother tax."

I will keep you posted on his future events and training. ~ Kari

Breeder’s Note: We want to send a note of Congratulation to the both of you. This is so awesome achievement. Gob is nearly 8 years old, and to achieve what he has at his age is impressive. You have done great with him Kari.

For those reading this, you might not remember that Gob started agility training late in life. Click here to see a previous post featuring Gob agility training. Click here to see them training in February of 2013. We are glad Kari took the risk and enrolled in the competition, and we thank her for sending along the photos (with the update). We look forward to hearing more about Gob’s future successes.
