Madeleine's first Agility Trial

Madeleine (Bonanza's Miss America, RN) is my 4-year-old Golden Retriever. She is the most affectionate and playful dog I've had - and is starting to become confident with her agility and rally. Here are a couple of videos shot at a recent trial in Ventura, CA.

Madeleine's first jumpers and weaves run at AKC trial at Hobart park on 07/25/10. She qualified with a score of 100 in 26.47 seconds, earning a 1st place and the first leg of a Novice title.

Madeleine's first standard run at AKC trial at Hobart park on 07/25/10. She qualified with a score of 95 earning a 1st place and the first leg of a Novice title. The extra dog walk cost us some time, a wrong course fault, and was clearly a handling error on my part.

Madeleine finished her Novice Jumpers title in short order. Here is her second qualifying run in Open Jumpers, November 28, 2010, which garnered her a 1st place and score of 100. She was momentariliy distracted by noise from the adjoining skateboard park, but got back on course.
