    Hi Guys
    Have put in another topic about dancing with dog. Had been playing around with it mainly teaching Gabby things. Just cant get into it lol My friend was helping me but she lives far away and to get there consistently well just didnt happen. We had a seminar about 12 months ago and apparantly you were suppose to have a routine well up to another friends place and yep you got it 5 min training session my friend had a routine for me that I could remember. Well sort of stuffed that one up didnt stand where I should of and well mmmm ran out of ring rope and had to try and fix it without looking silly anyway my heelwork to music was sort of half and half . Hadnt done anything since anway roll over another 12 months and yep done it again. We have a mock trial happening next week 9th Feb and my friend was going to do her well with her not training much with my dog and me not knowing what I was doing it was another mad rush so here it is and please dont laugh

    hopefully this has worked

    Great work!:D You did really well and I didn't laugh - promise - not once!:D But I was smiling at how well it all went!:D

    I want to get Ra Kismet into Freestyle, my problem is, the good place is at Trinity Gardens and I don't drive!

    Hope all goes well at the trial. What music will you be using? I could get the rhythm from your routine but not, of course, the actual music.

    well we had our mock trial and considering I didnt get to do any more training since that other video was done I was quite please lol
    One judge gave me 57.5 out of 60 and I lost 4 points for barking and also 1 point for not having a costume so ended up with 53.5 and the second judge which is a friend of mine and she said she would mark me hard got 52.5 and ended up with 48 points and that also included losing 4 points for barking and 2 points for no costume lol
    This was freestyle starters and apparantly was a freestyle novice

    huh I think I have a showoff when there is a ring and people are watching just did it at the park which was embarassing and she was quiet as a mouse
    She doesnt normally bark at all in obedience and agility competition but saying that her brother went totally bonkers it made Gabby look quiet. Noisy coolies lol
