A Great Agility Weekend
Noodle, Pizza, & Dolphin

February 18-20, 2022

February was all about agility, and we had another great weekend! Noodle was on fire, and picked up a TRIPLE Q in Masters Standard, Jumpers, and FAST all on one day. We are inching towards that MACH, little by little!

Pizza had some nice, speedy runs and picked up her first two Excellent Standard qualifying legs. She gets better and better and she builds confidence.

Dolphin had a great weekend where he learned a LOT! We opted to give up some clean runs to do a fix-and-go to reinforce his training, because the training is always more important than the Q's. I like to think we are building up our agility bank account for the future. Dolphin picked up his last Open FAST qualifying run to earn his OF title.

November Hunt Tests
Noodle, Pizza, & Dolphin

November 6-7, 20-21, 2021

November was a great month for About Time Weims in the field!

NOODLE: Earned THREE passes in Master Hunter, with some very high scores! Noodle has only been doing MH since last month, and she has shown beautiful intensity and drive along with great focus. She is truly a joy to take in the field! Noodle only needs two more passes to earn her Master Hunter title.

PIZZA: Pizza was on a major roll this month, earning THREE Senior Hunter passes and finishing her Senior Hunter title! Her last SH run was beautiful, with master-level handling and several scores of perfect "10". We love her speed and pure joy in the field, and are excited for her future as she is just a little over 2 years old.

DOLPHIN: Dolphin showed off the beautiful fierce point he inherited from his daddy to earn THREE passes in Junior Hunter, finishing his JH title. He is a wonderful example of training "up", as he consistently held his point through the flush and blank shot as a junior. The sky is the limit for this young man, at only 18 months of age!

All three, like all of our dogs in every event, are 100% owner-handled and owner-trained. We are so thankful to all of the field trainers who have helped us out along the way, as it takes a village (and a LOTTA birds!) to create a broke gun dog!
