I don’t normally mention my placing and refuse ribbons when I can, but, on this occasion, we earned not only some more firsts, but we earned 3 really cool big awards. One was for the highest scoring routine throughout all the levels that day. The other was the HAT award. HAT stands for Heelwork, Attention, and Teamwork. It is, in my opinion, a good measure of quality of dog training. Only one person walks away from the show with it, and we were the lucky ones! Along with that, we earned our Grand Championship for completing every level of Rally-FrEe through to the top. With Rally-FrEe setting the bar high, we put a lot of effort into getting here. I’m thrilled with my dog and my work together.
