This time we went to the show only the two of us – me and Fiona. And it was one of the hardest shows for me. Not because I was alone, but because I struggeled a lot in both of the rings – in the individual ring, but especially in the group ring. Unfortunately I couldn’t handle Fiona very well this time. But as Fiona is a very beautiful dog and we had a lot of luck, we achieved very good results!
One thing I tried this time for the first time and turned out to be a mistake, was a sausage that smelled too good. I had hoped that it would help Fiona to concentrate better, but actually it worked conversely and she was impatient and perky. So we have had much better performances previous times.
One thing that impresses me every time at shows (from this summer) is that when we are not in the ring, Fiona behaves so good. So good. That’s why it’s always enjoyable to be there. And of course like always I am already waiting for the next show to improve our performance skills.
Till next time!
