Madras Oregon September 19th. Ran Bailey in both Amateur Gun Dog and Limited Amateur Gun Dog.
Bailey went "bird less" in Amateur Limited Gun Dog.
Earlier in the day I handled him in the Amateur Gun Dog stake. This was my first and second time EVER handling a dog in a Gun Dog trail. He was a "derby dog" before. Derby was much easier.
Of the four dogs in the stake, Bailey and one other Vizsla qualified for the "call back."
Bailey had run the brace well, but I made some very rookie mistakes, that after Bailey retrieved the bird to hand in the call back he was the only dog to receive a placement. SECOND with first place withheld.
There is so much more to learn now and I really enjoy the sport.
It rained extremely hard Friday night and Sunday morning with scattered showers the rest of the weekend.
Randy Berry and Kathi Boyd at the "line" ready for a brace.
Videos and more pictures added later. Had to get home to meet my new human granddaughter "Lily" who was born this morning.
Stay tuned. Bailey and I have taken the next step.
