February 2nd & 3rd, 2019 - (NWODTC UKC Trial - Salem, OR) Amber competed in her first UKC Obedience Trial. It's similar to AKC, but a few different and more challenging exercises. On Saturday she earned her first leg with a score of 192 1/2+. We were 2nd place following a runoff with our good friends Aria and Linda. This adorable picture made us laugh as it appears that Aria is sulking over being 3rd place. They are both wonderful good sports! On Sunday we didn't qualify as we had an issue with our recall and our honor stay. That's the fun part of obedience there is always something to work on. We look forward to the next UKC trial!
