DKKs IPO3 Championship have finished and I must just say wow, what a weekend. Zelda and I came in on the second place just after the outstanding performance of Karina Annesen and her male I'Ro.
The weekend started with tracking saturday which went no better than 97 points which was the second highest tracking result that weekend. Zelda was simply wonderfull to walk behind, the calmness in her work was really nice to see and were rewarded with 97 points.
Sunday we had to do the B and C and let me start with B, we got 95 points, but to be honest I was not satisfied with the work, it lagged energy in my point of view. It simply seemed like she was on another planet, but she did all the excises non the less, there were of course some good moments but was not satisfied with it overall, but we were rewarded with 95 point.
Her C on the other hand, was right were I wanted it to be, good energy and good grips and she was controllable for once, not much more to say about that, she showed a good fighting spirit! The judges gave us 92 for this program.
We ended on 97-95-92 = 284 and a 2nd place and a ticket to FCI WM in Italy in september where we are going to representate little Denmark on the big stage! To be honest I think I am one of the youngest handlers going to WM from Denmark in ages! What more satisfying is that I am going to do it with Zelda my breeding bitch! What a season so far!
I would also like to congratulate Kennel Hesselballe, I think it's their first dog with their own kennel name which are going to be representated at a WM, Thanks Hugo and Pia, for a wonderful dog!
More over I want to thank kreds 67 and kreds 54 for their support, and ofcourse all those there have been wearing a sleeve when it has been needed :D
