I've never tried posting videos before, but Gordy and I have recently entered Rally-O trials, and I thought that my good boy would like it if I showed off here for all of his DTA friends. Bear with the me if what I'm doing as far as adding the videos doesn't work right away, worst case scenario, I will just have to post the links! The trials that we participate in are World Cynosport Rally... which I think is a really great venue! It has really helped me learn about the world of positive reinforcement training, and Gordy (as I'm sure it will show in the videos) LOVES it. WCR does allow you to talk to/encourage your dog and give food rewards at the end of signs that end in a stationary sign, so it helps to keep it fun for the Gordster, and that's what we're all about anyway! We can win or lose at a trial... and I stole this phrase from someone else, but there's no need to fret about mistakes or disqualifications, because at the end of the day, you still get the best prize of all... and that is to go home and snuggle with your best friend, your dog (Here is a link to the official guidelines, it describes how they promote good relationships through rally training!http://rallydogs.com/binary/files/APDT Rule Book.pdf) WCR has a high score of 2oo, with 10 potential bonus points at the end. In the first video, Gordy scored a 190, but then got all of the bonus points, so he got a total score of 200. That was his first time ever in an official trial ring! He got third place. The second video is his second trial (same day), he scored 200, and got all 10 bonus points for a score of 210, and took first place!! I was a proud Mom for sure!!
