So I’ve determined that I need to brush up on my mental management. Going for the invitational has put me in a state of mind where I’m too worried about whether or not enzo Q’s in each run and I’ve psyched myself out in standard runs with him for no good reason. He’s been good on his contacts and I should trust him and focus on what I need to do to get him through the courses and stop worrying about the results. I also need to stop rushing and make sure that I stay in contact with him. I’m re-listening to my Lanny Basham CD’s now and hopefully I’ve be able to get it together by USDAA nationals! Oddly enough I actually feel a lot less pressure about that than a local AKC trial at this point. I guess that’s a good thing but that might change as it gets closer. Mentally I need to focus stop thinking and talking about what we did wrong and focus on how to do things right. So as part of that I’m only going to write about the good things here.
Tooney did really well at the 4 day trial in Northern CA. She got one double Q and 1 Q each of the other 3 days, she placed 1st in all of the runs that she Q’d in except 1. Enzo had one really awesome JWW run where he got 1st and 46 points which is definitely the most he’s ever gotten for a jumpers run. I haven’t gotten around to posting most of the video but I put that one up.
Last weekend Enzo got first in JWW on Saturday on a really tough course and Tooney Q’d in JWW on Sunday. Oh and Enzo hit all of his contacts 🙂
