Junior Dogs Hit The Lanes Running!
We headed off to Newark on Saturday 10th September with TimeFlyZ running in the open competition aiming to obtain a seed time in preparation for the BFA Indoor Flyball Championships. Our baby dogs ran in the intermediate division as TimeOut. The competition, hosted by Extreme and High Flyers, was really well run, with a competitive but friendly atmosphere. The venue was great – unlike the weather! – and with races being run in two rings, the day went quickly.
We were a few handlers down so the open competition was a bit of a challenge, but thankfully we had some help from other teams with box loading and, with everyone doing their bit, we did OK! Unfortunately, although all of the TimeFlyZ dogs (Jasper, Flicka, Henna, PS and Willow) put in solid performances throughout the day, we were unplaced in our division.
The TimeOut babies (Hartley, Neo and Bella) did brilliantly! All three dogs put in full runs for all five races and, apart from one or two moments of distraction, were impressively focused and coped well with the busy two ring environment. They even received rosettes for first place in the intermediates (OK – so it may have been by default, but hey, they were still amazing)! We’re so proud of how far they have come and cannot wait to see what they do in their first real competition!#
