Jam rocks the agility ring at SOJAC!

Last weekend, Jam returned to the agility ring for the first time in a year and four months after having a litter of seven puppies. At the SOJAC Agility Trial at Dream Park in New Jersey, Jam did an awesome job competing in Masters Standard and Master Jumpers with Weaves.  Our first run was a little wobbly as I was late on a command and didn't give her enough support but after that run, we got it together and Q'd.  Jam nailed her weaves 4 out of 4 runs. On Saturday, she earned an MX leg with 15 MACH points (meaning she was 15 seconds under the official course time) and on Sunday also earned an MXJ leg with 2 MACH points!  She almost qualified in standard on Sunday but fell off the dogwalk, which was the second to last obstacle and was a scary few minutes but fortunately, she was fine and went on to qualify in jumpers later that day.  You can see Jam's run from the weekend.

Savi also had a great weekend, which is in the previous blog post, qualifying in 3 out of 4 runs, all with 1st places and earned her Novice Standard title.  I am super proud of my girls and cannot wait to run them in the next agility trial.  The best part is the teamwork with my dogs and fun with friends, cheering each other on.
