Sally earned her third RN leg this afternoon, she would have had a perfect score but I made a handler error that cost her 10 points.

She is now advertising for a new, more competent handler......

Congratulations, Sally! What's a poor hound to do--all those hours of training that handler, and you get her in the ring, and... :lol:

I suspect Edith and Eloise are looking for a new handler, too, Miriam. But mistakes happen. Sally made progress, and that's a good thing -- for both of you!

WOOOOOOOOOO HOOOOOOOOOOOOO!!!! What is a rally?[/b]
Rally is a fairly new dog sport that involves dog and handler moving from one station to the next, and executing different moves at each station (for example, a down, or a finish right, or three steps back). Unlike traditional obedience, the handler can talk to the dog, encourage the dog, etc. Many bassets are participating, and doing very well. There are three levels (RN, RA, and RE) and a final level RAE that involves qualifying 10 times on the same day in both Advanced and Excellent. There's a lot more information on the AKC Website under 'Events'.
