The weather was less than ideal but we still had a great time. Lots of rain on Friday and Saturday and then hot and sunny on Sunday but Lil ran beautifully all weekend long. 13 of 17 Qs and 4 new titles, impressive YPS and a nice consistent performance with her NEW running dog walk. After just a few weeks of training on a plank, she did not miss a contact all weekend long and most of the hits were nice and low in the contact zone.
I also experimented with more rear crosses and Li really seemed to enjoy them. I also see that I don’t need to rush and race her to the finish line as that causes her to feel rushed and her jumping becomes less efficient as a result. As the weekend progressed, I felt I was handling more and more in a style that truly supported Lil’s ability to do her job well.
