Miss LB is now Firien zu Treuen Händen IPO2 KKL B/HOT. She earned her IPO2 over the last two days with a 85-98-92P 275. We also took high in trial, high IPO2 and high obedience.
Tracking (85) was not up to her normal performance. She had been off in tracking all week so I knew we had a problem going in. Most stressful track I have ever run.
She was ON in obedience (98 pts) though I felt klutzy and cost her one point while she cost the other. Only my second V (excellent) score in obedience so that was quite a thrill.
In protection (92) she thought she should bother the helper a lot (put her feet on him) and was a bit dirty after two bites, but the secondary obedience that we had worked so hard on was excellent.
So, some things to fix before our three (probably next year), but I am happy with my ugly little grey dog. smile
More pictures as soon as I have them.

The "ugly little grey dog" is a joke for those who know that sable is not my favorite color. LOL

Congratulations! That's a nice set of scores by any one's count.

Where was your trial? USA or DVG? (only matters to those of us in the sport)

Really impressive whatever the venue.

With these scores, are you looking at nationals?


So clue me in -- you train the week before a trial? Just curious as I've been schooled that only on something that's giving you a problem.

USCA club, O.G. Indianapolis SchH and Policie.

No nationals this year and, of course, my club is hosting so will be close by. I'll be working the event instead. I am not able to get to regionals to qualify so, maybe next year IF nationals isn't on the west coast.

Training, or not, before an event depends a lot on the dog. I removed a lot of the pressure except in the secondary work in protection, but couldn't remove too much. This trial was a bit rushed for me. I would have liked another month in protection. She hasn't been doing the back transport for very long and the call out was a difficult exercise for her (though we did start that last year). In obedience I have only been doing the stand out of motion for about a week without handler help. On Friday she stood on the sit so I did one with high praise in warm-up. She was still in the learning stage of the stand. There has been a lot of interruptions in her training so she is behind where she should be. LB also has a very strong will about how things should be done in protection, much like her mom. I have had to experiment with different ideas (thank you to all of my club members who gave me input into ways to explain to her that this how things must be done and to not sweat the small stuff) and find what works best for her. This is my 7th IPO/SchH dog and while much like her mother and great grandmother she still had her own needs and intricacies.

She is a blast even if I want to slam my head into a wall at times. Very clear headed on and off the field. Tons of power and drive to work, but super easy to live with. Can't wait to see how she produces.

Lisa, After her mother and grand mother, if she would have turned out differently you would be bored or questioning what the heck happened. It seems the ones we love the most are the bigger challenges for us.
